Rosedene Picks

Rosedene Stud has nice specimens in 16-strong draft

Graeme Koster’s Rosedene Stud is well represented with 16 foals from the Karoo farm to go through the auction ring at the CTS March 2016 Yearling Sale, scheduled for 19 and 20 March at Durbanville.

Among them is Lot 50, an unnamed bay filly considered one of the best-bred yearlings at the sale.

She’s by Rosedene’s resident stallion Grey’s Inn from Two Cities, a three-quarter sister to a league of stars including Triple Crown winner Horse Chestnut, dual Oaks winner Monyela and Emerald Cup winner Iron Curtain.

Two Cities herself won one race over 1400m and this is a first foal Koster describes as “nice and neat, a quality specimen with a good head and eye. She walks well.”

Koster mentioned two others from his consignment: Lots 3 and 46.

Lot 3 (Unnamed) is a grey colt by Grey’s Inn from Red Caviar, by Russian Revival. He hails from the immediate family of Wolf Whistle and according to his breeder is “one I like, a very nice colt!”

Lot 46 is another yet to be named chestnut filly by Biarritz, who has sired a stakes-winning filly from his second crop, from Tin Legs (x Western Winter),  a graded-placed four-time winner from a good extended family of sprinter-milers. “She’s well worth a look,” Koster said.
