Prince Mdunjane is a very talented rider and has been schooling Ready To Run horses at Summerhill Stud for the past 5 years.
His pick of all the graduates from the 2005 Ready To Run sale was DESERT LINKS. Somehow Prince knew that this horse was something special. Then by winning the R1,2million Canon Gold Cup G1 for trainer Basil Marcus, DESERT LINKS proved to the rest of the world just how special he is.
Prince is one of our candidates for the Derrinstown Stud exchange program in Ireland for 2009.
The second of Prince’s “top 2 colts” for this year’s draft is KHETHANI.
KHETHANI (meaning Choose) is by Labeeb, out of a Lustra mare, Choice.
Choice had 3 wins including Ernst And Young Fillies Stakes L and is sister to PRINCELY HEIR (8 wins including 2nd Darley Arabian Handicap L) and RUSTY PELICAN (6 wins including Premium Stakes G2 and 2nd Daily News 2000 G1). From the family of ROYAL GLITTER (4 wins including SA Nursery G1) and OUTCOME (8 wins including Garden Province Stakes G1).
