GALLOP 27
Lot 74 Le Meteque Colt Stronghold ex Icy Thunder
Quite a bit bigger than his Silvano half-brother, who impressed in his first start recently. He has a nice big action on him, and with a classic pedigree, you can expect him to go from strength to strength.
Lot 61 Ingwazi Colt Kahal ex Great Attraction
Half-brother to the champion stayer, Amphitheatre, he’s a big baby with all the potential to emulate his illustrious millionaire brother. Remember, his brother failed to find a buyer at two sales in his year. Don’t let’s make the same mistake twice!
Lot 12 Razor Wire Colt Stronghold ex Buttonhole
Big improver, he’s just jumped out of bed the last couple of weeks.

GALLOP 26
Lot 6 Duty Calls Colt Solskjaer ex Beyond The Call
Half-brother to Guineas winner, Dynamite Mike (vanquisher of Jay Peg, remember!). Big burly individual with a big burly stride. The Solskjaers will be good value this year, and a brother to a Guineas winner won’t do you any harm either.
Lot 124 Passion Pleaser Colt Muhtafal ex Passionate Love
Good actioned individual, as you’d expect from Muhtafal, he’s a work-in-progress, as he’s only just realised racing is his game.
Lot 128 Battle Of Hastings Colt Solskjaer ex Princess Galileo
The famous Danehill / Sadler’s Wells (Galileo) cross, this is a burly, powerfully-made first foal. A really striking individual. He gets along impressively at this early stage for a horse of his breeding. If value’s your game, this is for you. (Worth remembering, Galileo is the hottest stallion in the world right now, and this man’s mum is by Galileo).
Lot 63 Que And Ay Colt Muhtafal ex Guesstimate
Another celebrated cross, Muhtafal on a Northern Guest mare, this is a good looking individual, with the speed to succeed at six furlongs and the pedigree to go a mile and a quarter.
Lot 75 Bay Of Songs Colt Mullins Bay ex Idle Song
Big hunting type, with a giant stride. Doing what all the Mullins Bays do; improving and improving. Look for a gear shift on Friday.

GALLOP 25
Lot 79 Bright And Blue Colt Mullins Bay ex Jibe
As fluent an action as you’ll see all day, he replicates the Kahal cross on Northern Guest through his sire, who is also a son of Machiavellian. Scopey, easy moving colt, he has the style to be a decent horse.
Lot 85 Stavinsky Colt Stage Call ex Katrinsky
Typical Sadler’s Wells type, he moves well, and whilst more of a staying sort, he shows encouraging signs for a youngster that’s only just realised his job is a racehorse.
Lot 133 The Barbadian Colt Mullins Bay ex Rambo’s Gem
As imposing an individual as you’ll find on the sale, he has the beautiful low action we’ve come to expect from his sire’s progeny. While he missed quite a bit of work with an injury, he will please many people at the gallops.
Lot 131 Mulaazem Colt Kahal ex Qawaafil
Fair sort, he’s still a work-in-progress. He has a nice stride on him, and like the Kahals can, he has the potential to improve.
Lot 165 The Big League Colt Mullins Bay ex Valkyrie Queen
A really attractive sort. Well balanced individual like most of his mother’s progeny, a lovely free mover, likely to be one of Mullins Bay’s earliest. Remember what Mike de Kock said of Mullins Bay, “a Group One winner anywhere, and deceptively quick”.

GALLOP 24
Lot 70 Kruger Millions Colt Solskjaer ex Hill Of Plenty
Big burly brute, has a V8 in his bottom, and he uses it. He has a nice low action, real value proposition for someone.
Lot 49 Operation Neptune Colt Mullins Bay ex Foo Fighter
Well grown colt, he has the stride of the tribe, and a deep reservoir of improvement. Looking for value? Don’t say we didn’t mention him.
Lot 14 Buffalo Run Colt Kahal ex Cariad
Famous cross of Kahal on a Northern Guest mare, exemplified in this colt’s own brother, Art Of War, who won three races in a single season at the Carnival in Dubai. This is a bigger, stronger individual than Art Of War at the same stage, and he’s got a Mike de Kock sticker on his hip.
Lot 10 Robin Island Colt Mullins Bay ex Blue Yonder
Half-brother to Link Man’s vanquisher, Blue Voyager, he’s another big, scopey colt with a lovely elastic way of going.
Lot 91 Castle Keep Colt Stronghold ex Lizmay Creek
Latish sort, he’s nonetheless quite smart, and gallops with the grace you’d expect from a grandson of Danehill.

GALLOP 23
Lot 169 The Mutineer Colt Mullins Bay ex Wanted
Big strong, imposing colt, we can’t say enough about the Mullins Bays. He has a big stride on him, and cuts the lawn. He’s the family to be good.
Lot 62 Bingelela Colt Cataloochee ex Greet The Greek
His mum was a midget, but she was the best daughter her sire ever produced. This is a “mini” battleship, with a turbo charger in the back. Has the capacity to destroy.
Lot 34 Cookie Monster Colt Kahal ex Dream Starling
We don’t want to sound like a stuck record, but this is the famous Kahal/Northern Guest cross which produced Emperor Napoleon, Bold Ellinore, Bhekinkhosi, Art of War, Galant Gagnant and the Emerald Cup winner, The Mouseketeer, among many others. This is a lovely big, well-grown colt, and he could be just anything. He has the makings of a proper horse.
Lot 167 Bay Musar Colt Mullins Bay ex Verve Cliquot
Half-brother to Strelitizia Stakes winner, Thekkady, he’s a grand mover, and he gets a move on. Remember the Kahal cross with Northern Guest? This is a replication, as Mullins Bay is by Machiavellian, like Kahal.
Lot 13 Gee And Tee Colt Muhtafal ex Campari
Well grown for a Muhtafal, he has good scope and a nice low action. Has grown into a decent sort, and will have his admirers after Friday. Half brother, Tony’s Tipple is making a bold bid for the Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup.

GALLOP 22
Lot 18 Norman Conquest Colt Rock Of Gibraltar ex Chanteloup
Lovely strongly made colt, he’s one of the stand-outs in the draft. Correct, easy going sort, and when he gets down to it, you can see why his sire was such a great performer. Dam’s brother, Border Arrow, earned a Timeform rating of 126, placing him in the top ½ % of racehorses worldwide.
Lot 139 Red Rover Colt Victory Moon ex Rosella
Nice scopey colt, his father’s come well at the right time, producing this years Champion Juvenile filly, Princess Victoria. For a horse that looks like he might have a bit of a trip in him, he has a nice snappy low action.
Lot 176 The Italian Job Colt Street Sense ex Albanella
One of the stars of the day. Big scopey horse, very similar to his father. Has a big raking stride, and carries it at a proper lick. Remember, his father is the only horse in history to win the Breeders Cup Juvenile and the Kentucky Derby, and is off to a massive start at stud. They’ve sold up to $600 000 recently at Keeneland, and more of them came from the family of Galileo and Sea The Stars, as this one does.
Lot 184 Noble Star Colt Kahal ex Arabian Magic
Smart colt gets on with it. Has the pedigree to be decent. Property of a King, so this is your chance to be associated with royalty.
Lot 183 Arabian Bay Colt Mullins Bay ex Arabian Charm
An impressive sharp individual. Beautifully balanced, he strikes you with a lovely light action. Check out the pedigree, and stick him in the notebook.

Friday 14th October 2011

Click here to return to Pen Pics Overview

GALLOP 21
Lot 180 Duke Of Medina Colt Rock of Gibraltar ex Amah Dramas
For a late foal, he’s well grown, and nicely developed. A reminder about Rock Of Gibraltar, three Group One winners this year and sixteen Group winners all told. This fellow has grown into an exceptionally nice horse, and he has a V8 in his backside.
Lot 135 White Tiger Colt Tiger Ridge ex Refined Gold
Nice strong colt, he really gets on with it in the way you’d expect the Tiger Ridges to, and there’ll be plenty to like on the day.
Lot 134 Patriotic Rebel Colt Stronghold ex Rebel Qui
Stronghold was Timeform’s European Champion Handicapper of the Year, and we must never forget, he was by the incomparable Danehill. This colt is a brother to a number of top runners, Rebel Patriot, Ravenscraig and Rebellious Streak, and he’s about as decent as any of them.
Lot 111 Gothic Colt Silvano ex Mysterious Land
Nice scopey, well grown colt, has a Classic look about him, he’s surprisingly forward for a Silvano. Lovely low action, likely to kick a bit of butt!!
Lot 123 Agadez Colt Kahal ex Paris To Dakar
Carries the famous Kahal/Northern Guest cross most recently advertised by The Mousketeer’s exertions in the Emerald Cup. This is a big scopey colt, a lovely middle distance type with surprising speed. A really nice horse.

GALLOP 20
Lot 16 Air Burst Colt Solskjaer ex Celestial Flame
Nice, low actioned horse. He’s well made, and comes from a mare who gets runners. The next Ice Axe?
Lot 35 Unnamed Colt Royal Academy ex Dubai’s Fairy
Not typical of the Royal Academys, he’s a more compact, strongly built sprinting type, with a beautiful low action, and a proper gear shift. Royal Academy has sired more than 160 Stakes winners worldwide, so there’s little to prove here. Top prospect.
Lot 164 Ivan The Forth Colt Solskjaer ex Tzarina
Well muscled colt, he’s another one of those who gives his heart from this crop of Solskjaers. They are by some stretch the best the stallions had, and this colt gallops with purpose.
Lot 110 Strong Blaze Colt Stronghold ex My Lady Furness
Big scopey colt, he has a lovely raking action, and expresses his athleticism all the way to the line. Another for the value seekers.
Lot 98 Macavity Colt Cataloochee ex Mafaatin
There’ve been a few big performances from the Cataloochees this year, and this is a typically solid individual who gets down nice and low, with a quick snappy action. Smart international pedigree.

GALLOP 19
Lot 40 Which Way Colt Way West ex Eli’s Grace
Way West has two Group One-performing fillies from his first two small crops, and Elliodor broke Northern Guest’s sequence of nine consecutive broodmare sires championships last season. A very nicely bred colt, he has a lovely low action, and he can move.
Lot 29 Amajiva Colt Muhtafal ex Dancing Orietta
Has a little more scope than most of the Muhtafals, has a nice easy action, and a nicely balanced movement. Property of Sheikh Mohammed; a chance to get your name into Debretts, the book that salutes the rich and famous.
Lot 66 Indaba My Children Colt Tale Of The Cat ex Hampton Rover
The number one Grass Horse in the USA the past two seasons is Gio Ponti, and, the best juvenile in America at the moment, is Overdriven, both sons of Tale Of The Cat, who is just a few points away from taking the Juvenile sires championship. A very late foal. He is a good looking colt and has a great elastic walk on him, and he’s going to make into a decent sort. After an interrupted prep, he’s making the strides we’d want from him right now.
Lot 130 Sanfoneiro Colt Muhtafal ex Princess Sassi
Well grown, typical Muhtafal type, he has a lovely big stride on him, and he can really shift two weeks ago, he was a rather backward individual, so whatever he does on Friday, you’ll know he’s made strides.
Lot 103 Dynamite Jim Colt Mullins Bay ex Mighty Nation
From one of Highlands top families, another of the Mullins Bays with the easy grace their father was known for. Gets better with every piece of work. He’s more the National Assembly type than Mullins Bay, at the physical level.

Lot 76 Sandy Lane Colt Mullins Bay ex Imibizo
Beautiful low action, he’s quick with it, and finished his trial off like a bullet. Here’s a real value proposition.
Lot 143 Kite Surfer Colt Tiger Ridge ex Seeking The Wind
Well grown, athletic individual, she has a good low action; a little behind the rest at the moment, she’s come on some in the last fortnight since we started feeding her Vuma!!
Lot 28 El Bailador Colt Cataloochee ex Dance On Silver
Typically, you’d expect the Cataloochees to be big and strong, and this fellow answers every prayer. He’s impressive in his work as well, and is a big robust individual, who’ll not be short of admirers.
Lot 106 Ushokolethi Colt Way West ex Mocha Choca
Lovely, low actioned colt, we have some faith in the cross between his sire and Muhtafal. This colt represents excellent value for a buyer who is looking for results, without sticking himself out.
Lot 127 Unnamed Colt Churchill Downs ex Prayer N’ Promises
Nicely grown, solid individual, he has a good low action. Grandson of the great Danehill, his father was a Group Two winning three year old who stands at Blue Gum Farm in Victoria.

Lot 136 Rocky Affair Colt Mullins Bay ex Rock Anthem
Mike de Kock has always sworn by Mullins Bay, and this colt is a good reason to believe he is right. He is a nice big, scopey individual, with a good flowing stride like his father, and he has speed to go with it.
Lot 7 Waka Waka Colt Solskjaer ex Bindella
This is the year of the Solskjaers. We’ve had a couple of encouraging performances of late, not the least of which from Ice Axe, and the half-sister to Salutation, Final Score (ex Tribute by Solskjaer) who flew in from last for an excellent second and looks like a worthy candidate for Sean Tarry in the R2 million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup. This colt is a lovely, scopey individual, as you’d expect from his pedigree, and he has a nice easy action on him.
Lot 47 George The Third Colt Royal Academy ex Fantastrick
Typical Royal Academy, he stands over a lot of ground and has a nice easy walk on him. We got going late with him, but his first piece of work on Saturday caught the eye.
Lot 161 The Disciple Colt Muhtafal ex The Convent
Half brother to the electrically fast Maji Moto, this very late December foal works with great purpose, and is typical of the better Muhtafals we’ve been associated with. Show us a man who doesn’t enjoy his gallop.
Lot 138 Bronze Star Colt Stronghold ex Rose North
This fellow had an interrupted preparation, but he’s a sharp, enthusiastic sort, and gave us a good piece of work in his trial. He will keep on improving, and with his pedigree, he should have his admirers on the day. Two European Group One winners from this family this year, including the English Oaks winner, Dancing Rain, and the Moyglare Stud Stakes heroine, Maybe.

Lot 69 Holdontight Colt Stronghold ex Hello Gorgeous
Compact, solid type, he was doing his best work at the end of his trial, which is an encouraging sign for a horse that’s only learning the ropes.
Lot 45 Exceptional Filly El Prado ex Exact
Not quite as advanced as the other two El Prados, but she has the typical low action which seems to be the signature of his tribe. Let’s not forget, he is a son of Sadler’s Wells, was a champion sire in America, and is already producing his own very successful sons at stud.
Lot 83 Rum Tum Tugger Colt Kahal ex Jumping Jaguar
Has a sister with a prospect of lining up for the R2 million Emperors Palace Ready To Run CuP in Ikati. Wherever Ikati was at this time last year, this one’s showing more. He has a lovely low action, and he gets on with it.
Lot 25 Celtic Warrior Colt Stronghold ex County Mayo

We wondered at one time whether this fellow would get to the gallops as he was rather late in coming to hand, but he has developed a powerful, workmanlike way of going, and if he keeps on improving the way he has, he will be spot-on for Friday.

Lot 38 Men And Mountains Colt Muhtafal ex Eiger
Let’s not forget, two Muhtafals, Blue Voyager and Mr. Mickey Mouse, lowered the colours of Link Man in Group races last season, and this is a very typical son of the stallion from a respectably bred mare by Fort Wood. He works with the purpose you’d expect the Muhtafals to, and he’s likely to be there still when he’s five years old.

GALLOP 15
Lot 109 My Argentine Lady Filly El Prado ex My American Lady
Big strong filly, she really gets on with it. Her father is a champion sire in the United States (by Sadler’s Wells), and there won’t have been too many of these on offer in the southern hemisphere, bred to our time. A rare find.
Lot 97 Dylan’s Promise Filly Dylan Thomas ex Madonna
Lovely scopey, filly very much in the mould of her world champion sire; she has a big, rolling action, and should have plenty of admirers. A rare individual, even in this draft of 19 foreign-bred horses.
Lot 89 Ilha Da Rock Filly Rock Of Gibraltar ex Les Ry Leigh
Really nice athletic filly, her sire has produced sixteen Group winners this season. South Africans already know Rock Of Gibraltar very well through the exploits of Mike de Kock’s top runners, Gibraltar Blue and Perhana as well as Charles Laird’s Seventh Rock, and this filly needs no advertising. She has talent, she’s got a pedigree, and she can motor.
Lot 41 Nkandla Filly Forestry ex Elusiv Lady In Red
One of the stars of the show. She’s magnificently bred, beautifully made, and has plenty of class. Her sire produced the Preakness winner (second leg of the American Triple Crown) Shackleford this year, and is the sire amongst others of world champion miler, Discreet Cat. There won’t be too many horses offered in South Africa with a pedigree like this, anywhere.
Lot 92 Layette Filly Giacomo ex Lochmaddy
Natty filly, she’s a daughter of a Kentucky Derby winner, and has a nice low action with more pace than you’d expect from her pedigree at this stage. Her sire produced American track record setter, Jake Mo, this past weekend.

Lot 71 Hope Forever Filly El Prado ex Hopeitsadiamond
We don’t ever recall seeing El Prados on offer in South Africa, so this is a rare opportunity to buy the daughter of an American champion sire. A solidly made individual with a great racing action and plenty of speed. El Prado already has a highly successful son at stud in the second season sire, Kitten’s Joy in the United States, who had another two Graded Stakes winners at the weekend.
Lot 17 Nandi Filly Danehill Dancer ex Celtic Queen
By one of the best sires in Europe, from the daughter of one of the greatest stallions in history. She has a full sister in Queen Mira in this country, who already has the distinction of finishing 2nd and 3rd to Igugu in Group company, and this filly has the credentials to go all the way. She’s already shown us the speed of a motor car, and she’ll gallop with great purpose.
Lot 42 Emaliyami Filly Rock Of Gibraltar ex Elusive Kash
Nicely made filly, you ignore the Rock Of Gibraltars at your peril. He is one of the world’s best stallions, and while this filly got going late, she is progressing nicely now.
Lot 117 Sweet Destiny Filly Var ex Nutella
Well grown filly, she covers ground at the gallop. Gets down nice and low, and runs to the line.
Lot 162 Critical Mind Filly Johannesburg ex Tough City
Big immature sort, from the family of local champion, Candy Critic. Has a nice stride on her, and while she hasn’t been asked too many questions, you can see the potential.

Lot 19 Golden Dynasty Filly Mullins Bay Ex Class Will Sell
She has the pedigree to be decent, and like all the Mullins Bays, she has a very appealing way of moving. Nice scopey, classy individual.
Lot 81 River Tyne Filly Stronghold ex Jordie
As much like her father as anything in the string, so it’s worth remembering, he was by Danehill, and he was Europe’s Champion Handicapper. A discerning buyer could have some fun for a relatively modest sum.
Lot 94 Reap The Rewards Filly Kahal ex Longfields
From the family of Gomma Gomma hero, Pick Six, and a half-sister to the unbeaten Golden Slipper winning juvenile, Bridal Paths, she’s flying for a November foal. One for the notebook: looking for a partner? Call the champions.
Lot 144 Roaring Water Filly Mullins Bay ex Shirley Singer
Sister to the past weekend’s winner Umhlamba, this one’s got a real engine in the back. You wouldn’t expect a  Mullins Bay to be as precocious as this one is, but she has the scope to keep improving, and she shouldn’t be long in getting to the races.
Lot 166 Velvet Lady Filly Macho Uno ex Velvet Touch
Neat, racy type by the sire of this year’s Kentucky Derby placed, Mucho Macho Man (from his first crop). A snappy, enthusiastic filly with a rare pedigree.

From a sister to Cape Guineas winner, St John’s Wood, this is a nice, sharp filly who improves with each piece of work she does.

Neat, well made filly, she has a lot more speed than her pedigree suggests. This is always a good sign in a horse that should get a trip, and another one for the value buyer.

The only Victory Moon filly in the sale, she’s an athletic, latish sort with a big rolling action. Remember Princess Victoria.
Lot 55 Khanya Filly Kahal ex Glitz
Big, scopey filly with just as big an action, she’s another in the Bold Ellinore mould.
Lot 152 Flashing Star Filly Muhtafal ex Starry-Eyed
Full sister to Moet Magic, an aspirant candidate for the R2 million Emperors Palace Ready To Run Cup on the 5th November for Sean Tarry. She has a lovely low action on her, and, in the view of our team, a slightly more athletic type than her full sister was at the same stage. She has the scope to be decent.
Lot 84 Elegant Bay Filly Mullins Bay ex Kali Dancer
Nice big, well grown filly, she has a lovely, flowing stride on her, so typical of her sire and his stock. They’ll be happy with her, come Friday.

GALLOP 9
Lot 171 Here We Are Filly Muhtafal ex West Coast Way
Beautifully bred filly, she’s come from nowhere to develop a nice action, and while she was late to get going, she’s getting better with each work. Value for a fellow with an eye on the future.
Lot 78 Unnamed Filly Kahal ex Incremental
Bred on the famous Kahal/Northern Guest cross, which has produced Bold Ellinore, Emperor Napoleon, Bhekinkhosi, Art of War, Galant Gagnant and The Mousketeer, among the numerous others. This is a smart, racey filly, with bags of potential. Progressing very nicely for a late foal (Nov 15th).
Lot 77 Stylish Bay Filly Mullins Bay ex In Style
Three quarter sister to top Joburg galloper Smanjemanje, another filly who’s deceptively quick for one still quite immature. Let’s not forget, Mike de Kock was the man who said Mullins Bay could’ve won a Group One anywhere, any day of the week, and who was deceptively quick. They only have to take after their Dad, in other words.
Lot 37 Stone Town Filly Stronghold ex East Africa
Go to Argentina, and they’ll pay you a king’s ransom for a Candy Stripes mare. We’ve been waiting for this one to deliver, and this Stronghold filly could be the goods. Let’s not forget, the Cataloochess are exactly that right now: “shoo shoo”.
Lot 31 Wishful To Reality Filly Kahal ex Deal A Double
By the leading sire of the present season from a family full of top performers, she’s just the second foal from a talented race filly. She gets along very nicely, and reminds us of the Bold Ellinore type.

GALLOP 8
Lot 154 Sightseer Filly Kahal ex Summer Guest
Top sire of Group One-winning fillies, (think Bold Ellinore, Chocolicious, Spiced Gold and Noble Heir), this one is quite typical of his better stock. She is very well balanced, stands over ground and moves like a classic filly, which you would expect from a Badger Land mare.
Lot 9 Silver Sands Filly Mullins Bay ex Blue
Well grown filly, she has a big rolling stride, and you can count on this one to produce on Friday.
Lot 141 Penelope Crush Filly Stronghold ex Scarlet Fever
Nicely balanced, well-made filly, she gets along in a good workmanlike fashion, and you can rely on her for Friday.
Lot 172 Dashing Queen Filly Ravishing ex Western Flash
Strongly made filly from a great Highlands family, she comes from the first crop of the best son at stud of the best South African stallion of all-time. She’s still a bit green, but she has an engine and gets down nice and low.
Lot 107 Tinchy Stryder Filly Mullins Bay ex Model K
Three quarter sister to the top Joburg filly, Mannequin, who’s picked up R500 000 for Paul Matchett (not bad for an R80 000 purchase). This is a bigger individual than her sister was at the same stage, and she has a nice big, loping stride on her; could be pretty smart.
