March Sale catalogue now online

Cape Thoroughbred Sales are proud to announce that the catalogue for their March Yearling Sale is now available for viewing online at
The two day sale will take place at Durbanville racecourse on March 19th and 20th, when buyers will have the opportunity to acquire any of 240 lots on offer.
While still a young sale, graduates of the March Sale include a number of top class performers including former Equus Champion 2YO Colt Seventh Plain –himself a R400 000 buy at the 2014 sale. At the same sale, subsequent G1 Thekwini Stakes heroine Lauderdale was knocked down for a mere R40 000 -highlighting this sales’ place in the calendar as one of the country’s best value for money auctions.

Last year, a Trippi colt, bred by Dr Ian Heynes, topped the sale when fetching R1.3 million, while the sales’ top priced filly was a Captain Al filly, who was knocked down to Hassen Adams for R400 000.



Many of South Africa’s top breeders are represented on this sale, which traditionally has offered buyers great value for money opportunites.
Top sires represented at the March Sale include Captain Al, Fort Wood, Trippi and Var, while promising young sires with offspring on offer include the likes of Elusive Fort, Querari and Seventh Rock.
