We are thrilled to introduce you to a truly exceptional offering that embodies the essence of racing excellence. At Boland Stud, we take immense pride in presenting a Last Winter colt (Lot 57) at this year’s prestigious November Two Year Old Sale. Prepare to be captivated by the legacy of Last Winter and the promise that this colt, aptly named Deserto, holds within. Last Winter, a son of the renowned triple South African champion sire Western Winter, showed immense promise during his brief racing career. He burst onto the scene with a remarkable four consecutive victories before finishing a commendable second in the Gr.2 Premier Trophy. However, it was his gallant second-place finish to the subsequent Horse Of The Year, Oh Susanna, in the 2018 Gr.1 Sun Met that solidified his place in racing history. On that fateful day, Last Winter left six Gr.1 winners, including champions Marinaresco, Legal Eagle, and Nother Russia, behind him—a testament to his exceptional talent. Retiring to stud, Last Winter possessed all the attributes to become a distinguished stallion. As the son of the multiple champion sire Western Winter, he was destined for greatness. His dam, Field Flower, a Gr.1 Cape Fillies Guineas winner, added further luster to his pedigree. She was a daughter of the illustrious six-time South African champion sire Silvano, linking Last Winter to a family of racing legends.

Remarkably, Last Winter’s lineage extends back to none other than the legendary Bold Ruler, a multiple-time Leading Sire in the USA on eight occasions. This rich heritage speaks volumes about the colt’s potential for greatness. Deserto, the Last Winter colt we present at the November Two Year Old Sale, is the embodiment of racing excellence. He hails from an extraordinary family, with a lineage deeply rooted in success. His dam, African Dynasty, a stakes-placed daughter of the revered sire and emerging broodmare sire Dynasty, offers an exceptional pedigree. Dynasty’s daughters have consistently produced top-class horses, including Equus Champion and multiple Gr.1 winner Charles Dickens. African Dynasty is a half-sister to the Listed The Scarlet Lady winner Parabola, whose sire is none other than Silvano—the same stallion who appears in Last Winter’s pedigree. Parabola’s lineage boasts Gr.2 Colorado King Stakes winner Captain’s Wild and traces back to the Nasrullah mare No Angel.

No Angel is the common ancestor of numerous exceptional performers, including champion full-brothers and outstanding sires Kris and Diesis, Gr.1 Irish 2000 Guineas winner Indian Haven, South Africa/Australia Gr.1 winner Surcharge (aka Yulong Prince), and successful South African sire Count Dubois. The lineage extends further to include Gr.1 Mercury Sprint winner Will Pays, sired by Imperial Stride—an illustrious member of this family.
