Lot 163 – Our Fair Lady x Var
Boland Stud to offer blue blooded Var filly at National Sale
Boland Stud will be offering, as agent, an exceptionally well bred daughter of leading sire Var at this year’s National Yearling Sale. The filly (Lot 163) in question is out of the Oratorio mare Our Fair Lady, herself a half-sister to this season’s very smart three-year-old Legitimate. The latter, himself a R600 000 yearling purchase, caught the eye when finishing second to the impressive Kommetdieding in January’s Gr.3 Politician Stakes, with Legitimate looking an exciting future prospect for trainer Dean Kannemeyer and owner Khaya Stables.
Our Fair Lady and Legitimate were both produced by Gr.1 SA Fillies Classic heroine Bambina Stripes, who earned nearly R800 000 in stakes during her career. From the immediate family of Gr.1 Premiers Champion Stakes winner Gunner, Bambina Stripes traces back directly in female line to Argentine Oaks winner Aimara. Twice Leading Sire of 2YOs in South Africa, former Gr.1 Prix de l’Abbaye winner Var has proven consistently successful since retiring to stud in South Africa.
Var has firmly established himself as more than capable of siring sensational daughters. To date, Var has 13 graded stakes winning daughters to his credit, including a trio of Gr.1 winning South champions in the form of Sommerlied, Val De Ra, Via Africa and Anything Goes, as well as Zimbabwean champion Mia Finola. Other notable fillies sired by Var include Oaks winner Princess Of Light, Post Merchants victress Varikate, multiple graded stakes winner Schippers, and Gr.1 Allan Robertson Fillies Championship runner up Cavivar.
