Sunday – Look Out For Riverton Family Values!

The sale starts at 11h00

In 2018, Riverton Stud hit the heights at the National Yearling Sale when they consigned a Captain Al filly out of Fiesta Queen to fetch R2 900 000, the top price paid for a filly at the National Sale that year.

Grade 3 winner Cousin Liz in action

Named Cousin Liz, the filly showed plenty of ability on the tracks, winning her first two starts including the 2019 G3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery.

Riverton Stud will be hoping history repeats itself when they offer a blue blooded half-brother (Lot 160) to the aforementioned Cousin Liz at Sunday’s November Two Year Old Sale.

A son of outstanding sire Vercingetorix (famously pinhooked by Riverside’s Grooms Co-Op back in 2010), the colt in question is not only a half-brother to Cousin Liz but also to the very talented, dual Gr3 winner Gimme One Night and the stakes placed pair of Demagogue and Queen Of Alamo.

Other standout lots in this string include The United Stakes half-brother (Lot 47) to the smart Captain Oupie, who hails from an outstanding international family, and whose half-brother Melech won today at Turffontein Choc’Late (Lot 87). The latter, a daughter of the very much inform stallion Futura, is a half-sister to four decent winners notably classy Gr2 World Sports Guineas runner up Supreme Warrior with this filly also hailing from the immediate family of outstanding sprinter Flobayou among many others!

The Riverton string can be found in Block H at the TBA complex in Germiston.
