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.
