2020 Bloodstock South Africa National Yearling Sale

The catalogue for South Africa’s oldest premier yearling sale, the 2020 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, is now online

More than 470 yearlings (subsequent withdrawals excluded) were catalogued for this year’s sale, with the majority of this country’s leading breeders set to be represented at South Africa’s premier yearling sale in 2020.

Once again, this year’s National Sale will be held at the TBA complex in Germiston, with the three day sale set to commence on April 22nd and conclude on April 24th.

The sale made history last year, when the Silvano colt, Masaki, was knocked down to Shadwell South Africa for R9 000 000, making the brother to G1 Klawervlei Majorca Stakes winner Nightingale the most expensive thoroughbred ever sold at public auction in South Africa.

Last year’s sale was supported by a host of international buyers, headed by Shadwell, the Hong Kong Jockey Club, Bjorn Nelson, David Ferraris, Tony Millard, and James Bester, and a strong international buying bench is again expected for this year’s National Sale.

The lengthy list of champions purchased at the National Sale in recent years include all of Futura, Legislate, Legal Eagle and reigning South African Horse Of The Year Do It Again (above), as well as Kilindini and Missisippi Burning – the winners of this season’s G1 Cape Guineas and G1 World Sports Betting Cape Fillies Guineas respectively.
