noma indiaSales topper: the filly NOMA INDIA (Kahal x Bridal Paths) who sold to trainer Michael Azzie for R380,000‘Hyperbolic growth” was how a delighted Bloodstock South Africa’s Marketing Manager, Byron Kennedy, summed up today’s Emperor’s Palace Ready to Run sale in Johannesburg. Defying the recent interest rate increase and a softening rand, this year’s sales aggregate grew an astonishing 49% to reach R11.027m (up from R7.359m in 2005) with the average up an equally staggering 53% to R100,245 (up from R65,705 in 2005).

“Clearly the incentive of next year’s Sweepstakes played its part in the massive growth of this year’s sale,” Byron said just moments after the conclusion of the sale. “We can only hope the momentum will continue into next year and other breeders will support the concept. We hope to crack at least 250 entries next time round”.

Local trainer Mike Azzie signed for the top priced lot - a filly called NOMA INDIA - who sold for a record price of R380,000. A daughter of the exciting young Machiavellian sire Kahal, the filly had been the subject of intense interest after a strong breezing session and during pre-sale inspections.

Champion international trainer Mike de Kock was the successful bidder for the second priced lot, the well admired colt ART OF WAR (lot 81) who sold for R360,00. The colt was also sired by Kahal.

“Foreign buyers played a vital part in this year’s sale,” said Mick Goss, CEO of Summerhill Stud, the largest consignor for this year’s sale. “Five horses have been sold to Dubai-based interests, four to Hong Kong, two to Singapore, and one to Australia. The local market also embraced this market with their heart and soul. Everyone wants to be part of this race next year. The concept of the sponsored race has drawn immense interest and added great value to the sale. Bloodstock South Africa are predicting 250 entries for next year and we are proposing a R1,000,000 stake as well.”

Chad Cook, former Group Racing Editor of the Independent Newspapers, said “This was a magnificent sale with quality horses bought at prices that make the Emperors Palace Sweepstakes a bonus that is seldom found in sales arenas of South Africa. The percentages for purchasing a qualifying horse are brilliant”

Ready to Run Manager at Summerhill Stud, Tarryn Liebenberg, was equally delighted with this afternoon’s results. “The sale well and truly exceeded expectations,” she said. “We were extremely happy with the performance of the Kahals and the Deep Sleeps. Their prices reflected their performances on the track two weeks ago.”
