An impressive looker, he is out of Gr1 winner Athina by Fort Wood, and fell to the bid of astute buyer Jonathan Snaith. The colt hails from the family of Quickwood, Nightingale and Waves Of Argosy and was purchased on behalf of an international owner who races in the Cape.

The top selling filly of the sale was Millstream Farm’s Lot 98, a daughter of Vercingetorix (Silvano) out of Giants Causeway mare Zulaal. She is a three parts sister to Zillzaaln and sold to Jonathan Snaith for R600 000.

The sale of Lot 129 attracted plenty of interest. An outstanding Legislate colt owned in partnership between the Grooms of Boland Stud and Eugene Freeman, he sold for R750 000 to Form Bloodstock. He is out of California Cool by Trippi, from the family of On That Boulevard.
