Lot 259 – Miss Varlicious x Legislate

Boland Stud - Lot 259

The Epitome of Speed and Legacy

Prepare to be swept away by the resplendent allure of Lot 259 – a colt that exudes the VAR FACTOR in every stride. Boland Stud, renowned for its commitment to breeding excellence, presents a rare gem at the forthcoming 2023 August Two Year Old Sale. Embark on a journey of extraordinary possibilities as we unveil the breathtaking legacy of this well-bred colt. The legacy of Var, the late speed machine who left an indelible mark on the South African turf, continues to resonate with greatness. As a two-time Leading Sire of 2YOs and the Champion Sire by Winners in 2018-2019, Var’s magnificent progeny includes the likes of Variety Club, Via Africa, Val De Ra, Vardy, and Anything Goes – all champions in their own right. Moreover, Var’s distinction as a prolific broodmare sire shines brightly, with his daughters producing the likes of Australian Gr.1 winning stallion In The Congo, the champion Tempting Fate, and other Gr.1 winners such as Alesian Chief, Master Archie, and Thunderstruck. The grand legacy of Var unfolds in a symphony of success.

This colt, as if touched by the hand of destiny, is the offspring of none other than the former Horse Of The Year and established sire, Legislate. The colt’s lineage echoes with the resounding accomplishments of two black type performers from both his first and second dams, heralding a truly top-class family tree. His dam, the illustrious Miss Varlicious, adorned the tracks with the speed and grace of a true racing star, claiming victory eight times over distances of 1000 to 1200 meters. Notably, she also secured an admirable third place in the prestigious Listed KwaZulu-Natal Stakes. Miss Varlicious, a prodigy of the Var/Qui Danzig cross – the same as champion Via Africa – derives from Qui Success, a winning Qui Danzig mare who achieved a remarkable third place in the GR.3 Kenilworth Fillies Nursery, closely contested by subsequent broodmare star, Spring Lilac. This extraordinary lineage extends further to the influential Argentinian champion, Vacacion, fostering connections with numerous high-class South American gallopers.
