Soetendal Presents Owloons’ Quintet At Nationals 

18 & 19 April - Save the date

Renowned pre-training and spelling farm Soetendal Estate will be bringing five smashing yearlings, as agent for Owloon Horses, to the 2024 National Yearling Sale to be held on 18 and 19 April.

Soetendal’s Julia Pilbeam had the following to say about the draft for the National Sale:

LOT 12: She’s a Trackstar, filly by The United States ex Vivir (Philanthropist)

Precocious and forward first foal of the speedy 3-time winning black-type mare, Vivir, from the family of Driving Miss Daisy. This muscular, well-grown filly has an active walk with a good topline and powerful hindquarter, and we can see her being quick like her paternal sibling Sheela.

LOT 13: Tipsy, filly by Trippi ex Vodka Lime (Captain Al)

One of the last opportunities to purchase a Trippi filly – and, what’s more, one bred on the same cross as Jet Dark and Princess Calla. This is the first foal of the 3-time winning Vodka Lime; she’s typically classy, compact with good depth and shoulder, and with that engine looks to be speedy like her dam!

LOT 142: Miss Fantastic, filly by Rafeef ex Flo Jo (Black Minnaloushe)

A Rafeef half-sister to Raiseahallelujah, from the family of Seal and Fifty Cents, this filly is a must-see. She is a beautifully balanced, quality filly with a ground-covering walk – make a note of this one.

LOT 199: Peekaboo, colt by Master Of My Fate ex Just Lucky (Judpot)

This very athletic colt moves exceptionally well. He is a late foal showing plenty of scope. The dam’s first runner is already a 2-time winner, and this colt is bred on the same cross as Zarina, Master Sabina and Return Flight.

LOT 359: Star In Motion, colt by Gimmethegreenlight ex Star Evolution (Var)

From one of the hottest families around at the moment, this colt’s dam, Star Evolution, is a half-sister to Star Express, making this colt a three-parts brother to the recently exported Bless My Stars and Let’s Go Now. With Var making such an impact as a broodmare sire, it’s a pedigree to take note of. The colt is a well-topped, strong, precocious type with a fluent walk.

This five-strong draft can be found in Block A at the TBA Complex in Germiston.
