Flying The Flag For Clifton Stud

Sale begins at 10h00

Clifton Stud has bred a large number of high-class gallopers over the years. From champions Classic Flag and Mrs Geriatrix, to recent Gr3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner Cliff Hanger, the farm continues to churn out equine stars.

Clifton boss Peter Blythe – nice draft for KZN Yearling (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

The latest top-class galloper bred by Clifton is up and coming three-year-old Flag Man. The latter put up a superb performance when finishing a close second in the recent Gr1 Daily News 2000, beaten only by July favourite Green With Envy.

Flag Man looks to be a very exciting prospect indeed. Peter Blyth will be offering buyers a chance to purchase their own Flag Man when he presents the latter’s half-brother for sale at the BSA 2024 KZN Yearling Sale on 04 July at Suncoast Casino.

Lord Wimborne (Lot 103), a colt by Canford Cliffs, is a half-brother to not only Flag Man but to four other winners including the very smart Capetown Beauty. This colt is out of the winning Mark Of Esteem mare Irresistible Chris, herself a half-sister to July winning champion Eyeofthetiger and Gr3 The Debutante queen Best Chris.

Clifton Stud will also be offering lots sired by the likes of Act Of War, Danon Platina, Fire Away, Master Of My Fate, and New Predator.

Lot 85 is bound to draw buyers’ attention and will need no introduction. This filly is by sire-sensation One World out of the five-time winning Western Winter mare French Lass. A half-sister to recent Listed Milkwood Stakes winner Paris Lass with French Lass herself a half-sister to Gr2 winning filly Chant De Nuit.

The Met winning One World has two other lots on offer here:

Lot 38: Brand New World is a colt out of Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery runner up Brandina.

Lot 68: World on Fire is a filly out of the four-time winning Var mare Easybyfar.

This draft can be viewed in Blocks A and B.
