Future champions go on sale during prestigious Cape Town racehorse auction
This month the who’s who of the South African horse racing community will gather for the annual Cape Yearling Sale held by Bloodstock South Africa – the sales arm of the Thoroughbred Breeders Association – at the beautiful Mistico Equestrian Centre in Paarl.
The sale will see some of South Africa’s most promising young Thoroughbreds set off to pursue success on the racetrack. Previous graduates of the Cape Yearling Sale include horse racing legends like Pocket Power who won over R10 million and 20 races, including the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate four times, during his illustrious career.
Out of the approximately 140 Thoroughbreds that will go on sale during the day, some have already begun causing a stir. Lot 95 is the first yearling (approximately 18 months of age) fathered by stallion Noble Tune to come under the hammer in South Africa. Said to be one of the best-bred racehorses to retire to stud in South Africa, Noble Tune won the G2 American Turf Stakes and the G3 Pilgrim Stakes and finished second in the 2012 G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. When it comes to Thoroughbreds, success is often “in the blood” meaning that there is a strong chance that Lot 95 is a champion in the making.
All are welcome to attend the event, so whether you are interested in investing in a racehorse of your own or merely want to catch a glimpse of the finest racehorse stock South Africa has to offer, whilst indulging in a delicious meal, come and enjoy a day at the Cape Yearling Sale.
