Lungisani HadebeLungisani HadebeAnother colt that’s proven popular is Lot 332, Buhlebami (which means “the Nice Things About Me”), an Australian-bred son of one of America’s better stallions right now, Tale Of The Cat. This one’s got an exceptional page, including some of the best horses to emerge from Northern Dancer’s own home, Windfield’s Stud in Canada, including the European Champion, Storm Bird (sire of America’s greatest living stallion, Storm Cat), Champion French sire, Green Tune, and the Champion European filly, Pas de Response. Right up in the pedigree though is AP Warrior, a leading entry for this year’s Dubai World Cup, and so this fellow has to be on any serious connoisseur’s list. He’s the choice of Kwanele Skhosana and Lungisani Hadebe.

Kwanele’s pick of the fillies is Khebraat’s own sister, Amanah (Lot 508), a lovely scopey individual with plenty of class and a couple of serious racehorses on her page. This is pure Shadwell Stud breeding (the bastion of Sheikh Hamdan’s international breeding operations), and lets not forget, Khebraat beat no less than Gomma Gomma hero, Pick Six and Guineas place-getter, Surfin’ USA, in last year’s edition of the KZN Breeders 1600, before his untimely death. Khebraat was never out of the money in his all-too-brief career, and Kwanele might just have something here.
