Green Light – Always Good To Go! 

A quartet of fab foals

Varsfontein Stud was started by Anthony Kalmanson in 1974 and enjoys a proud history of producing champions. Just days after their champion sire Gimmethegreelight celebrated the sales-topper at the November 2yo Sale on Sunday, we are proud to showcase a quartet of smashing foals by the son of More Than Ready.

Fresh off siring Saturday’s impressive Gr2 Betway Ipi Tombe Challenge winner Gimme A Shot, Varsfontein inform sire was at it again on Sunday.

Gimmethegreenlight colt Gimmelightning made the perfect start to his racing career when he ran out an impressive winner of Sunday’s Bet With Tab Maiden Juvenile Plate over 900m at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

Trained, like his sire, by Justin Snaith, Gimmelightning, was described by his jockey as ‘a smashing horse, and a horse for the future, for sure. He is a horse I would really like to stick with.’

Gimmethegreenlight also made headlines at Sunday’s November Two Year Old Sale when his unnamed daughter (Lot 172) made R1 200 000 to top the 2022 November Sale.

Consigned by Sandown Stud, Agent for Shadwell SA, the Gimmethegreenlight filly was sold to Pound Bloodstock.

Closely related to the Gimmethegreenlight sired stakes winners Hack Green and Favorita, the sales topping filly is out of Gr3 Fillies Mile winner Ghaalla.

Looking at this week’s Future Stars quartet, the first of the eye-catching colts is out of Babe Paley (Fort Wood), a full sister to Athina.

Then we have a beautifully well-made filly out of Listed winner and Gr 3 placed Maleficent (Judpot), who is a half-sister to Blackball and Rocketball.

Third up is a very handsome colt out of the Jallad mare, My Guiding Star. He is a half-brother to the former Dean Kannemeyer smasher Hashtagyolo, from the fabulous family of Malmoos, Master Of My Fate and Erik The Red, amongst others.

Then the classy half-sister to Bunker Hunt and Salvator Mundi is out of the Captain Al mare, Secret Obsession.
