Jackson colt one for the short-list

One of the nicest colts in the draft is Lot 117, a colt whose pedigree combines classic influence with precocity and speed. As yet unnamed this bay colt is by Jackson, a triple Gr.1 winning son of four times Equus Outstanding Stallion Dynasty. Himself a classic winner, Jackson banked over R2 million during a career which saw him win all of the Gr.1 Investec Cape Derby (over dual Horse Of The Year Variety Club), Gr.1 Daily News 2000 and Gr.1 Champions Cup. One of the very best horses of his generation, the impeccably bred Jackson hails from the same family as outstanding US champion sire Smart Strike.


His bay son, catalogued as lot 108 in the National Sale catalogue, is outof the very smart Captain’s Lullaby. The latter, a speedy and precocious two-year-old who won five times, up to 1200m, and was runner up in both the Gr.3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery and Listed Perfect Promise Sprint at two.

Captain’s Lullaby is herself impeccably bred being a daughter of champion sire Captain Al she is and half-sister to the Dean Kannemeyer trained Gr3 Byerley Turk hero Mambo Mime, a close second in the recent Listed Jet Master Stakes. Mambo Mime, who previously contested both the Gr1 Vodacom Durban
July and Gr1 Sun Met, has already banked in excess of R720 000!

Captain’s Lullaby is also a half-sister to the smart stakes placed five time winner Muamba, herself dam of speedy Gr.2 SA Fillies Nursery third Varumba. The Jackson colt’s second dam, bred in the USA, is the beautifully bred Murmuration –a daughter of leading sire and French Gr.1 winner Miswaki and champion racemare Susurration. Miswaki, whose offspring won such races as the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, Breeders’ Cup Classic and Japan Cup, is a truly exceptional broodmare sire, whose daughters have produced well over 140 stakes winners.

Mambo Mine

Among the outstanding horses produced by Miswaki mares is the world’s premier sire, and Epsom Derby winner, Galileo and the latter’s outstanding, six time Gr.1 winning half-brother Sea The Stars. Remarkably, both Galileo and Sea The Stars have sired Investec Derby winners! The classically bred Jackson is from the very same family as outstanding sire and broodmare sire Red Ransom. This colt has been bred on a similar cross to the one that produced Gr.1 winners Shadow Dancing, Heir Apparent and Athina.

Captain Al as a broodmare sire has already produced 12 stakes winners including Gr.1 winners Same Jurisdiction, Gunner and Potent Power.

A Boland Stud consigned son of Vercingetorix fetched R2.2 million at the recent National Sale, with other yearlings by the champion fetching up to R650 000 at that auction.

The magnificent colt in question is not only by a champion son of a champion sire in Silvano, but he hails from one of the speediest families in the South African stud book. Himself a half-brother to a multiple winner, this unnamed bay is out of a winning Jet Master half-sister to the Shane Humby trained O Caesour, whose 11 wins included the Gr.1 Cape Flying Championship, where O Caesour annihilated champion sprinters Mythical Flight and Rebel King.

Second dam is a winning Al Mufti half-sister to 2yo stakes winner Bwana Bahati and third dam is a five time winning half-sister to Gr.1 winner Enchanting. The latter was an exceptional broodmare whose offspring included the champions Harry’s Charm and Enchantress (dam of champion Laverna).

O Caesour

Another daughter of Enchanting produced multiple Gr.1 winner National Currency (like Harry’s Charm trained by Mike Azzie), and this is also the family of Gr.1 SA Fillies Classic winner Siren’s Call and promising Cape 2yo Fabian.

This is also a similar cross to the one that produced Gr.1 winners King’s Gambit, Bold Silvano, Equina and Al Shahem.

Broodmare sire Jet Master, himself a seven times champion sire, is fast making his mark as a broodmare sire, with his daughters already having produced such champions as Edict Of Nantes and Lady Of Black, this season’s SA Fillies Nursery winner Ronnie’s Candy, and trainer Eric Sands’ current unbeaten star Rainbow Bridge.

Boland Stud’s Potala Palace colt one to watch!

Boland Stud will be offering 12 yearlings by Gr.1 winning stallions, and one of these is the smashing colt catalogued as Lot 208. As yet unnamed lot 208, the beautifully balanced bay is a son of Singspiel’s talented son Potala Palace, one of the leaders of his generation.

Potala Palace

From the same male line as sire legends Galileo, Montjeu, Medaglia D’Oro and High Chaparral, Potala Palace won three of his first four outings, with his victories including the Premier’s Champion Stakes (where he beat subsequent top class sire Gimmethegreenlight and fellow Gr.1 winners Fighting Warrior and Master Plan).

The handsome bay, who was handled by Mike Azzie, trained on well to land the 2013 Gr.3 Joburg Spring Challenge where Potala Palace beat Equus Champion, and millionaire, Link Man by a length, with Gr.1 Summer Cup winner Wagner back in third spot. Also fourth to the outstanding pair of Jackson and Variety Club in the 2012 G1 Investec Cape Derby, Potala Palace retired to stud having earned over R600 000 in prize money.

Potala Palace made the perfect start when his very first runner, daughter Watsonia (subsequently third in the East Cape Fillies Nursery) made a winning debut over 800 metres. He is also the sire of feature race contender Dalai’s Promise and Silken Prince, who ran second, in open company, on debut.

The Boland Stud offered colt is out of the winning Jet Master mare Jet Princess – a full-sister to Singapore Gr.2 winner, and Gr.3 Matchem Stakes winner Thundering Jet.

Second dam is the Hobnob mare Bar The Shouting –a half-sister to Gr.1 filly Imperial Harmony.

Thundering Jet

This colt is directly descended from one of the most important matriarchs in the stud book. Eighth dam is Wokingham Stakes winner Kong, whose son Nimbus won the 1949 Epsom Derby and 2000 Guineas. Kong also produced Richmond Stakes and multiple Leading Sire of 2YOs Grey Sovereign. The latter was a massively important stallion whose offspring included successful sires Fortino, Zeddaan, and Sovereign Path, French 2000 Guineas hero Don and Cheveley Park winner Queensberry.

Seven times champion sire Jet Master is a rapidly emerging broodmare sire of note. To date he is damsire of the likes of Gr.1 winners Lady In Black and Edict Of Nantes (Gr.1 Investec Cape Derby), Green Plains (Gr.2 SA Fillies Nursery), Exit Here (Gr.3 Cup Trial), Silvano’s Jet (Gr.2 Gold Circle Derby), Here Comes Billy (Gr.2 Merchants), Rivarine (Gr.3 Lebelo Sprint) and Summer Angel (Gr.3 Umzimkhulu Stakes) to mention just a few.

Senor Santa

The colt on sale, a direct descendant of South Africa’s all-time greatest broodmare Drohsky, has Gr.2 Natalia Stakes winner Magic Model as a third dam, and that Model Man daughter is a half-sister to Boland Stud bred champion Senor Santa –an official champion on three occasions and the first sprinter in South Africa to earn more than R1 million in stakes.

Boland Stud have already enjoyed great success with yearlings from the first crop of Equus Champion Vercingetorix and they look on track for more sales ring success with this promising young stallion at the 2018 KZN Yearling Sale.

This colt is out of a speedy winning half-sister, Secret Pledge, to five winners, notably stakes placed seven time winner Secret Chamber, and Gr.3 performer, and seven time winner Silent Partner. The latter was sired by Vercingetorix’s dual champion sire Silvano –which makes Justinian very closely related indeed to that talented galloper.

Justinian’s second dam is top class racemare Secret To Success, a seven time winner up to 1200m. That daughter of Our Casey’s Boy was among the best of her generation at two, when she won the Gr.3 SA Fillies Nursery, beating subsequent Oaks winner Carolina Cherry in the process, and ran third in the Gr.1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship. A half-sister to champion Special Key, Secret To Success trained on well to land the Gr.3 Poinsettia Stakes and retired to the paddocks having banked nearly R500 000 in prize money.

This is also the family of graded stakes winners Captain’s Secret, Narc and millionaire Thunder Key. This striking Vercingetorix colt is descended from one of the greatest mares in the stud book in the shape of Horama (by Panorama).

The latter foundered a tremendous dynasty, with her numerous top class descendants including Epsom Derby winners Sir Percy and Teenoso, English 1000 Guineas star Harayir, Irish 1000 Guineas winners Favoletta and Lacquer, brilliant 2yo Sovereign, and former top class South African sire Hobnob.

Broodmare sire of Justinian is dual Gr.1 winner Black Minnaloushe, whose daughters have already produced such notable group/graded winners as Gr.3 Valedictory Stakes winner Bangkok, Gr.3 Hawke’s Bay Guineas star Amarula, and New Zealand Gr.1 winner Stolen Dance.
