Selling Tomorrow’s Stars

25 February @ Hollywoodbets Kenilworth

Long regarded as one of the best value-for-money thoroughbred auctions in South Africa, the BSA Cape Yearling Sale has been the launch pad for many outstanding thoroughbreds, with the lengthy list of stars sold in past years including the likes of Pocket Power, Mother Russia, Sparkling Gem, Zarina, and Astrix.

Cape Yearling Sale graduate Astrix – winner of the 2022 Gr1 Premiers Champions Challenge (Pic – JC Photos)

The latter, winner of the 2022 Gr1 TAB The Premier’s Champions Challenge, was a R60 000 buy from the 2018 Cape Sale, while Sprinkles, who earned more than R750 000 in stakes, cost just R50 000 when sold off the 2020 Cape Yearling Sale.

The 2022 Gr2 East Coast Radio Tibouchina Stakes winner, Homely Girl, is another wonderful example of the value to be found at this auction, with the Querari daughter knocked down for just R40 000 in 2020.

Successful young sire Gold Standard was a R725 000 purchase from the 2015 Cape Sale, while subsequent Australian Gr1 winner and sire Surcharge was offered for sale at the 2016 auction.

Last year’s sale saw Palancar, a Wilgerbosdrift consigned colt by The United States, make R850 000 to top the sale, with six lots making R500 000 or more. Palancar has a Buffalo Bill Cody half-brother on offer at this year’s sale in the form of Cavalry Scout.

Many of the top farms in the Cape are offering yearlings at this Sunday’s one day sale, with such high-class sires as Flower Alley, Futura, Ideal World, Legislate, Master Of My Fate, Pathfork, Querari, Rafeef, The United States, Vercingetorix and What A Winter all represented here.

Stallions with their first yearlings on offer here include Declarationofpeace, Erik The Red, and Hawwaam, while One World and Talk Of The Town, who have both made such promising starts to their stud careers, are also well represented at the 2024 Cape Yearling Sale.

The 2024 BSA Cape Yearling Sale has been scheduled for Hollywoodbets Kenilworth on Sunday 25 February with the sale set to get underway at 12h30 sharp.
