Predicting the top lot at a bloodstock sale is no easy task, but one can be certain the bids will come thick and fast when Rabada’s half-brother comes up for sale at Sunday’s Emperors Palace Ready-To-Run Sale at the TBA complex in Germiston.
When it comes to SA training legends names which spring to mind are Syd Laird, Terrance Millard and Mike de Kock. Close behind are Pat Shaw and Jean Heming. Sadly, Heming passed away in the UK last week at the age of 78.
Shaw, who won the 1995 Durban July with Teal and went on to become champion trainer in Singapore, is back in SA where his opinion on all racing matters will be closely followed.
