A Month To Go! Riverton Quality At Nationals

18 & 19 April - Save the date

Captain Of All. Domino Man. Astrix. Pearl Of Asia. These are just a few of the top-class thoroughbreds bred by the Barry family’s Riverton Stud over the years.

The Riverton team will be bringing a small but quality draft to the 2024 National Yearling Sale, with the quartet made up of yearlings sired by Rafeef, Master Of My Fate and Quasillo.

Duncan Barry had the following to say about his National Sale string this year:

Lot 71: Unnamed c Erupt -Brigtnumberfour, by Kahal

This is a well balanced, good walking, high quality colt.

Lot 172: Unnamed f Quasillo -Heliance, by Captain Al

She is a big, rangy, good walking filly.

Lot 321: Unnamed c Master Of My Fate -Seventh Heart, by Seventh Rock

He is a big strong colt with loads of presence!

Lot 325: Lotus Silk –  f Rafeef -Shanna, by Var (offered as agent)

Tall, very attractive, athletic filly. She is bred on the very successful cross of Rafeef over Var mares resulting in two Gr1 winners, including Thunderstruck.

The Riverton string can be viewed from Block H at the TBA Complex in Germiston.

The sale will be held on 18 and 19 April.
