Bold Silvano colt maintains his unbeaten record

11th Mar 2018

Ascot Stud’s July winning champion Bold Silvano looks to have a top class two-year-old on his hands in the form of Bold Eagle.
The latter, bred by the Riyo Stud, made it two wins from as many outings when he won the Listed Storm Bird Stakes over 1000m at Turffontein on Saturday.

Trained by Gavin Zan Zyl, Bold Eagle, a smart winner on debut, destroyed some promising juveniles with a 3.5 length romp to collect the first black type win of his career.

The Storm Bird Stakes has been won by a host of top class performers over the years, including Equus Champion and globetrotting star Soft Falling Rain and Bold Eagle could well be another such high class performer.

He was one of three runners in the Storm Bird Stakes for 2010 Equus Champion Middle Distance Horse Bold Silvano (the latter’s daughter Mazari running fifth behind her paternal half-brother).

The 2018 Storm Bird Stakes winner was a R210 000 buy from the 2017 National Yearling Sale.

Bold Silvano, the sire of Bold Eagle, has now been represented by high class performers in each of his first three crops to race, including Guineas winner Flasher On The Run, Sophomore Sprint/Kuda Sprint runner up Bold Respect and Bold Rex. The latter ran third, to subsequent Hong Kong Classic Cup winner Singapore Sling and G1 SA Classic hero Heavenly Blue, in the 2016 G2 Investec Dingaans.

One of four July winning sons of champion Silvano, Bold Silvano has two lots on next month’s April Yearling Sale, and a further 10 yearlings on the 2018 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale. Bold Silvano’s National Sale draft includes a ½ to German 2000 Guineas winner Caspar Netscher and ¾ sister to G2 winner Bella Sonata (Lot 100), a ½ sister to G1 winner Querari Falcon (Lot 228), and a ½ to Precious Pansy –who won the Listed East Cape Fillies Nursery on debut (Lot 242).
