Woodhill’s Four Are Ready To Raise The Bar

The sale starts at 14h00 on Sunday

Glen Kotzen speaks with enthusiasm about the four lots he has consigned via Woodhill Racing to the 2023 Ready To Run and Two-Year-Old Unbroken Sale at Hollywoodbets Durbanville on Sunday.

Here’s what Glen has to say:

Lot 6 – Stated – a son of The United States

Lot 6 Stated ch c The United States x Duchess’s Greeting
“We’ve consigned this colt on behalf of clients. He’s a beautiful specimen, a first foal from an unraced Duke Of Marmalade mare; he has been an excellent broodmare sire. There are a few interesting updates to note. Winter Greeting won another good race just last week, a classy filly.

Greeting My Master recently ran third in a Progress Plate to the smart Hluhluwe. Stated is a beautifully balanced colt who moves exceptionally well. He was bought on the CRS Winter Mixed Sale, so he qualifies for the CRS Juvenile Bonus.”

Lot 15 – Unnamed What A Winter filly

Lot 15 Unnamed ch f What A Winter x Hidden Thought
“This filly is out of a half-sister to Hidden Beauty, a smart Graded winner I bought for Fred Crabbia some years ago. It’s a good quality family with nice, honest horses.

She is well balanced, has grown into a beautiful filly that stands over ground and has a magnificent action and temperament. She was bought at the KZN sale and qualifies for the Double Bonus Incentive.”

Lot 78 – Unnamed Trippi colt

Lot 78 Unnamed b c Trippi x Captivating
“He is a first foal by a champion sire from a mare by our champion broodmare sire, bought at the National Sale. He is a bit behind the others, but is a beautifully balanced colt with beautiful Trippi quality in him.

He is deep in the girth, not the biggest, but with lots to come. He still has some growing and will need some time, but he has a strong pedigree and everything in the right places. He is going to be a nice horse and is a Double Bonus candidate.”

Lot 78 A – Unnamed Soqrat colt

Lot 78A Unnamed b c Soqrat x Capulet
“By Soqrat, who is in high demand, out of a smart Captain Al full sister to Secret Obsession, the dam of Bunker Hunt and Salvator Mundi – good solid black type in the second dam. He was bought off the August Two-Year-Old Sale and is a Double Bonus candidate.

An imposing horse who stands over the ground, he is some way behind the others as far as his work goes, but has very nice action and the Soqrat’s look like they’re going to run. Soqrat’s progeny have been well received at previous sales.”
