Local breeding enthusiast Vanessa Williams reported the birth of the very first arrival from one of the recent “greats” of South African racing, CATALOOCHEE.
Born from a Braashee half sister to Summerhill-raised Cape Derby (Gr.1) hero, Shah’s Star, the strapping colt is reportedly very reminiscent of his sire, and has plenty of exactly what Cataloochee will be supplying in bulk. Exactly that: Bulk, with a capital “B”. Not bad, Vanessa, who smartly laid claim to the colt’s pregnant mother less than a month ago (& still has a few days before payment falls due!). Well done to you; it couldn’t have happened to a nicer girl, or a happier breeder. Remember the old saying “Seldom in the red with a Summerhill bred!”
