Buyers will have their sights set on acquiring a bargain buy like the popular three-year-old Kommetdieding when the 136 yearlings come under the hammer today.
It was two years ago when the training team of Harold Crawford and Michelle Rix secured Kommetdieding for just R55 000 at the Klawervlei Farm Sale. Since then, the Elusive Fort colt has won four races and is an 8-1 chance for the Vodacom Durban July.
Commenting on the purchase, Rix said: “He was out of a three-parts sister to top-class Captain America. He was a fuzzy little horse and the first dam had not produced much, but we liked him a lot.”
Edict Of Nantes and Captain Of All — sire of July second favourite Linebacker — are two other notable graduates from the sale.
