Save The Date – Cape Racing Winter Yearling Sale

Change of date - 6 June 2024

Cape Racing continues to unveil exciting initiatives for upcoming thoroughbred auctions.

Next on the revised schedule is the Cape Racing Winter Yearling Sale which, due to the South African General Election on Wednesday 29 May, has been moved to Thursday, 6 June 2024, at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth, at 11h00.

The change of date means that viewing will commence on Tuesday, 4 June at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth.

There are currently 113 Lots on offer listed in the catalogue, with the following vendors bringing yearlings to market:

  • Ambiance Stud
  • Beaumont Stud
  • Drakenstein Stud
  • Hemel n Aarde Stud
  • Hopes and Dreams Stud
  • Klawervlei Stud
  • Maine Chance Farms
  • Millstream Farm
  • Narrow Creek Stud
  • Normandy Stud
  • Oldlands Stud
  • Ridgemont
  • Soetendal Estate
  • Syrilla Stud
  • Varsfontein Stud
  • Wilgerbosdrift

A wide spread of South Africa’s established and freshman sires will be represented to suit buyers across the price spectrum.

Commercial highlights include five Vercingetorix yearlings, nine out of Rafeef (AUS), and a sole Gimmethegreenlight (AUS) baby – all of whom will be highly sought after.

The Pinhook incentive scheme, introduced in 2023, will again be a sale feature. The incentive allows speculators to make purchases at the Winter Yearling Sale in June while only having to pay for the stock once selling at the Ready to Run Sale in October.

All graduates qualify for the CRS Juvenile bonus, which pays R100,000 to the winning connections.

The Cape Racing Sales personnel listed below are available to assist:
