Hot Catalogue Thwarts Cape Winter

All systems go for 14h00 today

While a couple of soaking showers in the morning, followed by a brief shower or two in the afternoon, is forecast for Cape Town today, Cape Thoroughbred Sales will host the 2021 De Grendel Wines Mare & Mixed Sale at a warm and dry venue with traditional CTS hospitality.

The sale will start at 14h00 at the De Grendel Wine Estate and Grant Knowles, Marketing and Bloodstock Director of CTS, responded to a Sporting Post inquiry with an assurance of ‘all systems go’.

“The weather looks wintery but not unseasonal at this time of the year, and the sale venue will be warm and dry with plenty of Gluhwein and Punters Gin available. It’s such a hot catalogue, the weather couldn’t dampen it,” added Knowles.

With 120 lots on offer from 14 vendors, the quality of the catalogue is top-class.

The likes of Maine Chance Farms, Klawervlei Stud and Ridgemont Highlands – to name a few – will be offering top quality lots from a variety of stallions.

Three of the regular Top 5 broodmare sires of the last four racing seasons are well represented in Jet Master (3 lots), Western Winter (3) and Captain Al (11), with regular Top 10’ers Silvano (5), Trippi (6) and Dynasty (3) adding to the quality.

The majority of the mares on offer were covered during the 2020 breeding season.
