A daughter of Maine Chance Farms’ highly successful sire Black Minnaloushe proved the star turn at Saturday’s Cape Thoroughbred Sales (CTS) August Two-Year-Old Sale.
Consigned by Maine Chance Farms, the filly named Good Golly (lot 84) was knocked down to Rainbow Beach Trading for a session topping R340 000.
Good Golly, one of just two lots on the sale by Black Minnaloushe, is out of the Northern Guest mare Grace O’Malley, whose previous foals include four individual winners. Grace O’Malley, in turn, is a half sister to former G1 Golden Slipper winner Gilded Minaret (by Al Mufti) and her dam is Dancing Champ’s G3 Gerald Rosenberg Stakes winning daughter Chasing Gold.
Recently crowned champion sire Trippi was the sire of the top priced colt on offer. Consigned by Highlands Farm, the colt (catalogued as lot 28) named Friend Of Time was sold to Kuda Holdings for R325 000.
The Trippi son, a half brother to five winners including Listed Victress Stakes runner up Jabulani Jive (by Jallad), is out of National Assembly’s G3 SA Fillies Nursery runner up Proud Peyton –a full sister to four time stakes winner and G2 SA Oaks runner up Proud Classic.
Of the 90 lots offered at Saturday’s sale, 61 were sold for a gross total of R3 490 000. However, both the average and median dropped from last year’s sale, with the average dropping from R59 513 to R57 213 and the median falling from R40 000 to R35 000.
