Boland Stud are proud to offer a superbly related Pathfork colt (as Agent) at next week’s Sibaya KZN Yearling Sale.
The farm are no strangers to selling Pathfork yearlings at the KZN Sale –with Boland Stud having sold Pathfork’s impressive debut winner South Side from last year’s sale.
Former Irish Champion 2YO Colt, and G1 National Stakes winner, Pathfork has made a superb start to his stud career and is currently South Africa’s second leading first crop sire (by stakes). His first crop includes brilliant, undefeated G3 Godolphin Barb Stakes winner Red Chesnut Road and Listed Dahlia Plate runner up Turbo, and Pathfork must surely rate as one of the most exciting young sires around!
Pathfork, a son of champion US sire Distorted Humor and from the same family as top sires as El Gran Senor, Northern Guest and Redoute’s Choice, also hails from the same female line as one of North America’s current top gallopers –Effinex. The latter, runner up to American Pharoah in last year’s G1 Breeders’ Cup Classic, has earned over $2.6 million with his wins including the G1 Clark Handicap and G2 Oaklawn Handicap. Effinex looks sure to add further Graded glory to a family also responsible for such champions as Better Than Honour, Peeping Fawn, Rags To Riches, and Try My Best.
Boland Stud’s colt, catalogued as lot 233, is also from a very hot South African family.
A half brother to two winners, this grey is out of a winning own sister to Equus Champion filly and dual G1 winner Donatella (herself the dam of G2 Colorado King Stakes winner Senor Versace).
This is the same family as current top class 3yo filly Negroamaro, who has earned over R800 000 in stakes and the winner of this season’s G3 Russell/Joshua Doore Fillies Mile, as well as recent G3 Lonsdale Stirrup Cup winner Balance Sheet, who also finished second in last year’s G1 eLan Property Group Gold Cup.
The two day sale will commence at 12:00pm on Thursday at the Sibaya Casino in Durban and the catalogue can be viewed online at www.tba.co.za
