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.
