Drakenstein Stud’s blue blooded young stallion Kingsbarns is a young horse with a tremendous pedigree.
One of more than 50 G1 winners for Derby winner and multiple champion sire Galileo, 2012 G1 Racing Post Trophy winner Kingsbarns hails from a magnificent female line.
His dam, Beltisaal, is a superb producer, having nine winners to her credit. Not only is she the dam of the G1 winning 2yo Kingsbarns, but Beltisaal is also dam of G3 Derrinstown 1000 Guineas Trial winner Belle Artiste and the top class Rock Of Gibraltar daughter Sweeter Still.
The latter, currently in foal to G1 Belmont Stakes/Champagne Stakes hero Union Rags, was a top turf female whose three wins (from just six outings) included the G3 Senorita Stakes and China Doll Stakes.
Sweeter Still has been catalogued in the first book to sell at next month’s Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, and sells as lot 215.
As a Graded winning half sister to an outstanding 2YO in Kingsbarns, Sweeter Still looks sure to find favour with discerning buyers.
Kingsbarns has made a pleasing start to his South African stud career with mares already having tested in foal to the son of Galileo.
