Avontuur On Sunday

Cape Premier Yearling Sale- starts 14h00 Sunday

Pippa Mickleburgh, always a wealth of information on her Avontuur-breds, commented on the Estate’s six yearlings at the Cape Premier Sale on 14 March.

Lot 3: Triple Time- Twice Over colt

Lot 3: Triple Time- colt by Twice Over ex Valeta

“A big, strong colt by a quality sire and a Gr1-placed mare from the family of Sarabande, hence his grey colour. This is a good mating, putting VAR’s speed to Twice Over.”

Lot 91: Kennedy- filly by William Longsword ex Jackie O

“A beautiful and powerful filly from the immediate family of Argonaut and Simply Salmon that looks precocious. She’ll be one for the early ‘baby’ races and could yield a quick return.

Lot 105: Gold Beach- filly by Gold Standard ex La Normandie

“From the first crop of Trippi’s son Gold Standard, who has sired some good-looking youngsters. This filly has plenty of Trippi in her – she’s a refined, classy and athletic specimen, a half-sister to Gr1 winning sprinter Normanz.”

Lot 109: Sagan- colt by VAR ex Lazer Star

“A nice colt, the second foal of a top-class sprinting mare. He’s a good walker, moves well and has plenty of scope.”

Lot 119: Hot Ice- What A Winter coilt.

Lot 119: Hot Ice- colt by What A Winter ex Menorah

“A stunning, flashy and well-built colt by a top sire from a speedy damline. I have high hopes for Hot Ice, he’s a robust, masculine eye-catcher and looks like he’ll run!”

Lot 123: Typeset- filly by Futura ex Muamba

“Typeset is a tall, athletic filly by a promising young sire from a good female line. She’s gorgeous, well-bred, well-related, has a lot going for her.”
