A Quality Draft From Riethuiskraal

Suncoast Casino - 04 July - 10h00

In 2019, Riethuiskraal Stud sold a Judpot colt to Riethaan Belegging for just R15 000 at the KZN Yearling Sale. The colt, Flying Carpet, went on to score at the highest level, with the Judpot son victorious in the 2021 Gr1 World Sports Betting Presents The Gauteng Summer Cup.

In landing the Summer Cup, Flying Carpet accounted for a very high-class field, with his beaten opponents headed by the Gr1 winners War Of Athena, Puerto Manzano, Astrix, Sparkling Water, Al Muthana, Got The Greenlight and Malmoos.

This year, Riethuiskraal will be bringing an imposing, quality draft to the BSA 2024 KZN Yearling Sale, giving buyers a chance to acquire the next Flying Carpet.

Among the stallions represented in this consignment are Futura, Hawwaam, One World, The United States, and Twice Over.

Met winning champion One World has made a sensational start with his first runners this season and the son of Captain Al is represented here by Lot 73, Economic Life (c) out of Especially – a half-brother to five winners who hails from the same “E” family as champions Empress Club, Ecurie and Elusive Fort to name but a few.

The United States, whose flagbearers this season include high-class two-year-olds Kingdundee and Rodeo Drive, has three lots on offer.

Lot 112Divine State (f) is a half-sister to the stakes placed Balalaika from the family of Yataghan and Gallantry

Lot 161Quarter Master – a beautifully bred colt who hails from the immediate family of hugely successful sire Querari, is a half-brother to four winners including Gr3 Acacia Handicap runner up Queen Of Shadows.

Lot173Latin America (c) whose six-time winning dam Sao Paulo is a full-sister to Listed KZN Guineas Trial runner up Trip To Rio.

Both Quarter Master and Latin America are bred on the same cross which produced the high-class filly Sheela.

Silvano’s champion son Hawwaam has made a big impact with his first yearlings this season and that former Equus Champion is the sire of Lot 96Tristan Da Cunha – a filly from a high-class family. A half-sister to five winners, she is out of a stakes winning daughter of Danehill Dancer, and her granddam La Linotte is a half-sister to the dam of Gr1 winners Lily Of The Valley and Mubtaahij.
