R2,2 Million Tops At Super Sale

Well related Captain Al two-time winner tops charts

A SA recordbreaking yearling and two-time winning sister to two Gr1 winners and ¾ sister to Snaith champion Snowdance topped the charts at the 2018 BSA Super Sale held at Greyville Racecourse on Monday.

The Mike de Kock-trained Best Kept Secret was knocked down to her existing part-owners and leading breeders Maine Chance Farms for R2,2 million.

Best Kept Secret wins her maiden

A full-sister to treble Gr1 winner All Is Secret and Gr1 Alan Robertson winner and recent Gr2 Tibouchina Stakes victress The Secret Is Out, the 3yo is by deceased champion Captain Al (Al Mufti) and is the sixth foal of the Gr2 winner Secret Of Victoria (Goldkeeper).

Hailing from the family of joint SA champion 3yo colt of 2004/5 Rabiya (Jallad), the BBP Syndicate-bred set a SA sales record for a yearling filly of R5,25 million at the 2016 CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale when purchased by Tina Rau and MV Magnier off the Klawervlei draft.
