Here’s just a taste of what is on the menu:
RUNS ON THE BOARD
Muhtafal: sire of 2006 Gr1 Golden Horse Sprint winner Let’s Rock ‘n Roll, following the Gr1 Mercury Sprint winner Disappear in 2005.
Albarahin: His first crop of 2yo’s have rocketed this freshman to the top of the ladder.
Kahal: Bold Ellinore, Evening Attire, Majestic Sun and Looks Like Trouble are just some of the names carrying ‘Kahal’ on their sire side in 2006.
And don’t forget Deep Sleep (triple stakes winner of more than R1.2m), Lavery (G1 winning 2yo), Malhub (Defeated the cream of Europe’s sprinters in the Golden Jubilee Stakes (Gr 1) at Royal Ascot, including World Champion Juvenile, JOHANNESBURG and first or second in four Group Ones in 2002, and never more than a 1/2 length behind in any of them), Russian Revival (Winner of seven races and almost R8 million and Timeform’s champion handicapper of 1999. Yearlings have sold up to R320,000) and Slew The Red (15 starts from 2 to 5 years, 13 cheques).
THE NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK
Solskjaer: Currently the highest ranking son of Danehill in South Africa with a Timeform rating of 120lbs. The immaculately bred son of Danehill is one of three Group winners from his dam including Yeats, winner of last year ’s Coronation Cup (Gr.1) in England. Equipped with an imposing physique and being a Stakes winner from a mile to 10 furlongs, he is well suited to the local breeding scene, with the added advantage of being one of very few high performing sons of Danehill in South Africa.
Way West: This boy had speed to burn, winning the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude which immediately saw him regarded as one of the top two or three juveniles in Australia at that time. Judged by the Australian veterninary icon, Dr. Percy Sykes, as the perfect model of a yearling, like the highly successful stallion Flying Spur, Way West is a son of Danehill out of a Mr. Prospector mare. His granddam was the winner of three Grade One races, and is a sister to the Melbourne Cup hero, At Talaq. Way West offers the wondrous combination of juvenile precocity and exceptional conformation, combined with the best sire line in the world.
