Drakenstein’s Futura ‘Best So Far’

Save the online sale date - 29 November

Kevin Sommerville of Drakenstein Stud says that the Franschoek’s Farm’s Futura colt coming to the CTS Ready To Run And Mixed Sale is “the smartest Futura we’ve bred so far!”

Lot 55, Futura colt

  • Lot 55 c. Futura – Giboski

The colt is named Impact and he’s considered a “very smart colt”. Impact is the first foal of an unraced Philanthropist mare, Giboski, who is a half-sister to dual Graded winner Lanner Falcon.

  • Lot 59 c. Trippi – Happy Archer

Next from Drakenstein is Slings And Arrows, a colt by Trippi from dual Gr1 winner Happy Archer (Dubawi), Sommerville describes as being “in the mould of his mother”. Happy Archer has produced two winners from two runners, with good reports on her third foal, unraced. A top runner is surely on its way.

  • Lot 64 f. Trippi – Irish Myth

Trip To Ireland, a bay filly by Trippi from Dynasty’s daughter Irish Myth, who won the Listed Kenilworth Oaks. “She’s a slightly-framed but beautiful filly and although they’re not related, she reminds me of Miss Katalin, who won the Ready To Run Stakes for us.”

  • Lot 72 c. Twice Over – Monte Carlo Girl

Double The Odds is a Twice Over colt from Monte Carlo Girl, whose first three foals are all rated 90 and over, but have been unlucky not have achieved some black type yet.  This colt is well-related and looks the part.

  • Lot 102 f. Vercingetorix – Wayward

An unnamed Vercingetorix filly from the close family of the exported Gr1 winner Lobo’s Legend, who won in Hong Kong earlier this week. She’s the third foal of Wayward, by King’s Apostle, whose second foal Visiway won early and is racing competitively in Gauteng.

  • Lot 164 f. Elusive Fort – Mocha Blitz

Last of Drakenstein’s six is Lot 164 Bloodonarose, a filly to be sold on behalf of a client. “She’s a typical Elusive Fort, she’s nice, typical of her sire, unbroken as yet.

The sale, renowned for its high-profile winners and a return on investment, will be staged online in partnership with Gavelhouse.com on Sunday, 29 November.
