Vermaak Equine Offers Quality Draft Via BSA Online Sale

Vermaak Equine will be offering a high-quality, 13 strong draft at the Bloodstock South Africa July Online Auction

This online sale will get underway on July 3rd, and is set to commence at 12pm sharp.

The Vermaak Equine draft is made up of broodmares and fillies for stud, with the fillies and mares sired by all of Dream Ahead, Fastnet Rock, Fort Wood, Oratorio and Street Sense, and covering sires including all of Erupt, New Predator, Vercingetorix, William Longsword and Willow Magic.

Awayinthewoods (Lot 7) is a young, dual winning half-sister to G1 Premier’s Champion Stakes runner up Kilcoy Castle, and this daughter of multiple champion broodmare sire Fort Wood sells in foal to Dubawi’s dual G1 winning son Erupt.

The classically bred Daffodil (Lot 13), is a daughter of multiple champion sire Fastnet Rock, and this mare’s dam, the G1 Yorkshire Oaks third Roman Empress, is a full-sister to Epsom Derby runner up The Great Gatsby and three-parts sister to champion, and G1 Grand Prix de Paris winner Imperial Monarch.

Five-time G1 winner Dream Ahead is the sire of Dreams Are Made (Lot 18), with this winning mare being a half-sister G2 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes winner Tamaanee and out of a half-sister to top Australian sire I Am Invincible.

Galaxy Gold (Lot 23) is a mare with plenty to recommend her -not only is this dual winner not only a half-sister to G1 Vodacom Durban July winner, and Equus Champion, Heavy Metal, but she sells in foal to Maine Chance Farms’ hugely exciting stallion Vercingetorix.

Danehill horse Oratorio is represented here by Giglio (Lot 24), with this dual winner selling as a filly for stud and hailing from the same family as champion Saddlewood as well as such G1 winners as Bold Thatch, Coral Fever, Fort Defiance, Ravishing, and Villandry.

Oratorio is also responsible for Regal Graduation (Lot 54), with this smart, five-time winner selling as a filly for stud. A half-sister to Nkosazana Stakes winner Royal Trip, Regal Graduation has plenty to recommend her as a broodmare prospect as her winning dam Royal Aspen is a Fort Wood half-sister to G3 Algoa Cup winner Forest Of Dean.

Dual winner Miss Malbec, whose stakes-placed half-sister Cat’s Paw is responsible for recent Durban Dash winner Celtic Voyager, sells as Lot 39, while Miss Malbec’s yearling filly (by Willow Magic) sells as Lot 116, and the mare’s Capetown Noir weanling colt sells as Lot 89. Miss Malbec herself sells in foal to Dubai’s G1 SA Nursery/G2 Dingaans winning son Willow Magic.

Four-time winner Seattle Lady (Lot 65), whose Swallow Stakes-winning half-sister Woodland City is the dam of Canadian stakes winner Katalox as well as 12-time winner Let’s Play Two, sells in foal to the New Approach sired Charity Mile/Drill Hall Stakes winner New Predator, while Reward For Effort’s four-time winning daughter Sweet Pleasures (Lot 68) is another selling in foal to New Predator (below).

Recently deceased Irish 2000 Guineas winner Spectrum is well established as a high-class broodmare sire, and his daughter Switch Hit, a half-sister to four stakes horses notably G1 SA Fillies Classic runner up Green Top and G3 Graham Beck hero Doosra, sells, in foal to Cape Guineas winner William Longsword (sired, like Doosra, by Captain Al), as Lot 69.
