Lot 246 – Persian Silk x Rafeef
Rafeef filly to shine at Two Year Old Sale
Eugene Freeman’s Boland Stud will be offering a blue blooded filly from the first crop of exciting young Redoute’s Choice sire Rafeef at this year’s Emperors Palace National Two Year Old Sale.
Winner of six of only ten starts, including the 2017 Gr.1 Computaform Sprint (where he beat champions Talktothestars and Carry On Alice), Rafeef has already more than made his presence felt in the sales rings across South Africa. The own-brother to Equus Champion Mustaaqeem had a first-crop yearling make R2 200 000 at the 2020 Cape Premier Yearling Sale, while Rafeef yearlings fetched up to R700 000 at the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale earlier this year. The son of South African Horse Of The Year National Colour has a very well related filly in Boland’s draft. This filly is out of the winning Captain Al mare Persian Silk -a half-sister to Gr.1 Golden Horseshoe winner Forest Indigo and East Cape Derby runner up Drop Kick.Granddam Albizia, a 4 time winning daughter of champion sire/broodmare sire Fort Wood is a half or full-sister to seven stakes horses including Gr.2 Golden Slipper winner Alexandra Rose-who won the Gr.3 Monrovia Handicap in North America. Alexandra Rose made headlines in 2020 when her daughter Oleksandra beat a field of high-class males to win the Gr.1 Jaipur Stakes at Belmont Park. Multiple champion sire Captain Al, the broodmare sire of this colt, is fast making a name for himself as a broodmare sire with his daughters having already produced the Gr.1 winners Eden Roc, Gunner, Potent Power, Same Jurisdiction and Vernichey-to name a few!
This filly has been bred on a similar cross to the one that produced Gr.1 winners The Autumn Sun, Simple Verse and Diamondsandrubies!
Oleksandra – Gr.1 Winner
Forest Indigo – Gr.1 Golden Horseshoe
