Drakenstein’s Quality Quintet

The action starts at 14h30

Kevin Sommerville of Drakenstein Stud is looking forward to the 2023 Tattersalls Cape Premier Yearling Sale to which Gaynor Rupert’s blue-chip establishment has consigned five colts.

He discussed them, individually:

Lot 41

Lot 41 – Takeyourbestshot:
“A nice, strong and precocious son of What A Winter out of a dual, G1 winning Dubawi mare, Happy Archer. He goes about his business very well, looks a forward colt for this sale.”

Lot 61

Lot 61 – Great Plains:
“Great Plains a striking looking son of Danon Platina out of Mara, a young mare by VAR who was decent as a race filly. He is an attractive specimen, roan-coloured and comes from a lovely family that goes back to Bright Sky. Danon Platina looks to have some precocious sorts among his early runners, he has had a good start. Great Plains has handled his prep very well, couldn’t be happier with him!”

Lot 93

Lot 93 – Bombers In The Sky:
“Here is a Lancaster Bomber colt out of Song Of Happiness by Giant’s Causeway. He is big and strapping, very much in his father’s mould. He has done incredibly well, physically. We are excited to see what the Lancaster Bomber runners will do on King’s Plate day. This one comes from the wonderful family of Ebony Flyer, Captain’s Lover, Vardy and others. He is one of this sale’s outstanding prospects.”

Lot 94

Lot 94 – Gold Sparkle:
“He is a colt by Gold Standard out of Sparkling Gem, the G1 winner. He is a nice, scopey sort and takes a nice shape. Sparkling Gem has already produced the Graded winners King Of Gems and Pink Tourmaline. Gold Standard has had a nice start to his career, including a couple of really outstanding fillies. Gold Sparkle should attract a lot of interest.”

Lot 99

Lot 99 – Supreme Green:
“A smashing colt by Gimmethegreenlight out of Supreme Vision (Visionaire), who is a half-sister to Do It Again. He is a beautiful specimen with a beautiful pedigree, by a champion sire, a big, strapping colt who looks precocious but should also go on over further.”
