CTS announce exciting incentives
Cape Thoroughbred Sales announced several recent exciting incentives for future buyers at a press launch in Johannesburg on Monday.
The incentives include a three race challenge (the CTS Challenge) for all graduates of the Cape Premier Yearling Sale (Book 2).
Each race is worth R2.5 million – which makes the Challenge in total worth R7.5 million in total.
Three yearling crops will qualify for this series – starting with the 2013 graduates. These horses, offered at the 2013 Book 2 Sale this month, automatically qualify for a R2.5 million race to be run in Johannesburg in February 2015.
Graduates of the 2014 Book 2 Sale can compete in a race over 1400m in Cape Town, which will be held in Cape Town during early February 2016.
The following year’s graduates of the Cape Sale Book 2 line up in a 1400m race in Durban, also to be run in February, but in 2017.
For each race, the winner will earn R1 100 000, with R500 000 going to the runner up in that particular event.
An exciting additional bonus comes in the form of the Trainers Challenge – with the trainer who conditions the most successful horse, in terms of prize money, bought at the 2013 Cape Premier Sale (Book 2) gaining a R1 000 000 bonus.
CTS’s Chief Operating Officer, Adrian Todd, said of the challenge series,” We believe this Challenge Series is a great incentive for all buyers and vendors of our Book 2 sale.”
The Cape Premier Yearling Sale (Book 2) will be held at Durbanville on March 23rd and 24th.
The catalogue includes some exceptionally well bred youngsters, and features yearlings by leading SA sires Captain Al, Dynasty, Silvano, Trippi and Var.
The catalogue also features youngsters on sale by promising young sires Antonius Pius, Judpot and Rebel King, to name a few, as well as such proven stallions Count Dubois, Tiger Ridge and National Emblem.
