Brave Soldier Guards The Fort

'More value than money'

Storm Cat’s outstanding son Brave Tin Soldier has relocated to The Fort Stud in KZN and stands for a value fee of R5 000 this season.


Brave Tin Soldier (Storm Cat – Bless)

A wise one man once said that the hallmark of a great sire is getting one better than himself.

While a top class racehorse – Mike de Kock once said ‘he could run like the wind’ and a 1200m stakes winner and a Group mile recordbreaker – Brave Tin Soldier produced the aptly named star Rabada from his second crop . He was  the only colt of his generation to win a Gr1 at 2 and 3.

His fourth crop daughter Brave Mary won the Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship last season and,  subsequently placed at feature level twice, she was exported by her new owners Team Valor International and will race in Europe.

Brave Tine Soldier was bought as a foal for a world record R33-million. A Sire with race performance as well as handsome athletic good looks, he boasts two of the greatest Bloodlines in the world in Storm Cat and Mr Prospector and supported by another two great Bloodlines, Secretariat and Danzig and making up a 4 x 5 Northern Dancer for his progeny.
