Wabooms Valley Stud Farm and Waterford Stud will be offering a combined total of seven lots at next week’s National Two Year Old Sale and both drafts have lots of interest.

Relatively young Cape stud Wabooms Valley Stud Farm’s two juveniles on offer include a colt (Lot 12) by proven classic sire Black Minnaloushe out of a winning Royal Academy mare closely related to multiple G2 winner Sapience. This is a top class international family of such group winners as Privy Seal and Summitville, as well as G1 winning classic winner Rosananti.

Second in the draft is a filly by successful sire Windrush (his daughter Nordic Breeze won the G3 Champagne Stakes recently), out of a three time winning own sister to G2 Oaks winner Gleaming Sky (Lot 410). This is the same family as French Derby winner and champion sire Caerleon among many others!

Waterford Stud, whose past graduates include G2 SA Fillies Nursery heroine King’s Temptress, has five here, including a filly by King Of Kings (sire of King’s Temptress).
The draft also includes a Philanthropist filly out of a National Assembly half-sister to 3 stakes winners (Lot 129), an Await The Dawn colt from the family of G1 winning champion Dare To Dream (Lot 143), a Seventh Rock ¾ sister to G1 Gold Medallion winner Guiness (Lot 144) and a Bold Silvano filly out of a three time winning daughter of hugely successful broodmare sire Model Man (Lot 162).
