End Of An Era

Mogok mare in foal to Crusade tops sale

South African racing and breeding marked the end of an era on Tuesday with longstanding breeders of champions Scott Bros holding a Total Dispersal Sale under the auspices of Bloodstock South Africa at their Highdown Stud.

Topseller – Sahara (#17) in foal to Crusade (Pic – Candiese Marnewick)

The top seller was the dam of Gr1 performer and millionaire Matador Man, Sahara (Mogok), who sold in foal to Clifton sire, Crusade. She was knocked down as lot 17 to Gary and Colleen de Klerk’s Summerview Stud for R170 000.

The family was in demand with Sahara’s unnamed weanling filly, lot 78, a full-sister to Matador Man (Toreador), selling to Robinson Racing for R125 000.

The sale grossed  R1 273 000.

A total of 95 lots sold (43 were unsold) with an average price of R13 400.
