The inaugural CPYS – Book2 to be held at Kenilworth Racecourse from the 2-4th March is now available online at www.capethoroughbredsales.com for viewing. The catalogue which features 405 yearlings from the country’s top breeders is packed full of depth & quality.
Book2 replaces the Cape Summer Sale & the Equimark Vintage Yearling Sale which have both built up the reputation for producing champions at affordable prices including Group 1 winners Mother Russia (R160k), Big City Life(R170k), Eddington (R150k), recent SA Classic winner English Garden(R100k) and of course Champions Pocket Power (R190k), Jay Peg (R140k) & Sun Classique (R100k).
Leading Sires Jet Master, Captain Al (5), Dynasty (16), Var (9), Trippi (2), Silvano (12) and National Emblem (21) are all represented along with exciting first crop sires Jay Peg, Rebel King, Judpot, AP Arrow, Kildonan, Sail From Seattle and Argonaut.
“This is certainly no regional sale, it is a strong catalogue with representation from all the leading breeders, the leading stallions and solid pedigrees that have depth. Kenilworth is the home of Cape racing and we believe it will be fantastically convenient venue for Book 2” said CEO of Cape Thoroughbred Sales Robin Bruss.
The highlight of the sale could be Lot 119 an Antonius Pius (Danzig) half-brother to recent Investec Cape Derby G1 winner Jackson from the Highlands Farms Stud Draft and The Alchemy offers a full brother to Exhilaration (lot 381). Other notable lots include 403, half-brother to recent 2nd placed Frequent Flyer in the Majorca Stakes Gr.1, Lot 58 a Tiger Ridge half-brother to Champion Stakes G1 winner African Appeal & listed winner Mary Lou and lot 272 a Silvano colt out of Zealous Zilla from the Maine Chance draft.
The minimum bid is R20,000 and this sale will be operated on a 21 day payment basis, but with an innovative 3 – 6 month financing plan available to all buyers.
We look forward to inviting everybody down to our “local is lekker” sale and the events during the week including our Comedy Evening at our Biltong and Braai party on the Saturday night.
The catalogue is now available online HERE, printed catalogues will be posted next week and the Ipad application will be available early next week.
