Black Swan’s National Best Yet!

18 & 19 April - Save the date

Black Swan Stud was established near Robertson in the Western Cape in 2011 by Peter de Beyer.

They offer a small but select draft of five yearlings at the 2024 BSA National Yearling Sale, which will be held on 18 and 19 April.

Lot 138 is a magnificent colt by Master of my Fate out of Gr 1 Cape Fillies Guineas winner, Field Flower. The dam traces back to a full sister of international champion sire Busted and has already thrown 6 winners. Most notable of these is Last Winter, close second in the Cape Met, and now a sire.

This colt has a great top line, and is exceptionally good looking and correct. He has an athletic walk with a perfect overstep.

Lot 373 is a classy filly by Captain of All out of Sylvie, and thus a half sister to the exciting unbeaten Almond Sea, and to speedy stakes winner, Sarah.

This filly is built for speed, with a powerful quarter and good depth. She is correct, and walks well, and has obvious paddock potential.

Lot 332 is another smart colt by Master of my Fate out of Gr3 winner, Silvan Star. Her first foal is a winner. The dam is out of a half sister to July winner Bold Silvano, and is also by his sire, the great Silvano.

An eye-catching colt, he is correct and well topped, and moves very well.

Lot 381 is the only colt by Twice Over on the sale, out of a Fort Wood mare, Tequila Blush. He is a half brother to stakes winner Helen’s Ideal, from the family of Broadway Flyer and Man of Property.

A big, powerful colt, deep girthed and with strong quarters. Correct, and a very good walker with a big stride.

Lot 125 is a beautiful filly by Gold Standard out of Gr 3 winner and Gr1 placed Elusive Fort filly, Elusive Heart.

She is a tall filly, that stands over ground, and has a good length of rein. She is correct, moves beautifully, with a long relaxed stride.

This is without doubt the best draft that the Stud has brought to Nationals, and all should be viewed.
