Ascot Stud’s homebred sire Bold Silvano has enjoyed a good start to his stud career, and his current crop of 2yos continue to fire this week.
The 2010 G1 Vodacom Durban July winner was represented by another eye catching two-year-old winner at Fairview on Friday when his daughter Hot N Hazy made a stylish winning debut over 1000m.
Trained by Alan Greeff, Hot N Hazy put a length between herself and favourite Joking to register a first out win under recent Met winning jockey Greg Cheyne.
Hot N Hazy’s sire Bold Silvano, whose first crop of runners including talented G2 performer Bold Rex, has been represented by just six two-year-old runners this season, but four have won or finished in the money and they include impressive R1 000 000 Kuda Sprint hero Bold Respect (whose two wins from three outings have netted him R690 000 in stakes) and debut winner Pure Fiction.
Bred by the Ascot Stud, Bold Silvano’s latest 2yo winner is out of the Way West mare Hot Girl, a stakes placed winner of four.
One of 18 G1 winners (including recent G1 Klawervlei Majorca Stakes heroine Nightingale) for former champion sire Silvano, Bold Silvano has a single lot on offer at the March 16th Cape Yearling Sale –a colt out of a five time winning daughter of emerging broodmare sire Windrush (Lot 102).
The former Equus Champion also has four lots on offer at the 2017 CTS March Sale, held two days after the Cape Sale.
His lots are:
Lot 51 – a full brother to a winner, this colt hails from the same family as world leading sire Storm Bird, champions Green Tune and Pas De Reponse and exciting new SA sire Global View
Lot 53 – out of a winning daughter of champion US sire Thunder Gulch (damsire of Breeders Cup hero Bayern among others), this colt’s second dam is a three time winning daughter of Danzig and this is the family of Horse Of The Year Charismatic and US dual champion sire Exclusive Native
Lot 108 –bred on a similar cross to champion Hot Ticket (Silvano out of Sportsworld mare), this intriguingly bred colt is out of a winning Sportsworld mare –from the same family as his own sire!
Lot 226 – out of a winning Rock Of Gibraltar mare this colt’s second dam is an own sister to SW sire Sufficient, family of US G1 winner Black Mamba
