Gimmethegreenlight stars at Premier Sale

13th Jan 2023

Varsfontein Stud’s champion resident sire Gimmethegreenlight proved the star attraction at Thursday’s Cape Premier Yearling Sale Powered by Tattersalls.
The G1 winning son of More Than Ready was responsible for three of the top four lots sold, including Thursday’s sale topper, with Gimmethegreenlight ending the day as the sale’s Leading Sire by Aggregate.
Gimmethegreenlight colt Valley Of The Kings (Lot107) was knocked down to the Hong Kong Jockey Club for R3 800 000 to top Thursday’s sale.
Consigned to the auction by Maine Chance Farms, the handsome colt, bred on the same Gimmethegreenlight/Captain Al cross as G1 winner Gunner, is out of Captain Al’s Laisserfaire Stakes winning daughter Victoria Lavelle.
His sire had three yearlings make upwards of R1 000 000, and a further three lots make upwards of R500 000 on Thursday.
In total, Gimmethegreenlight had 15 yearlings sell for a gross aggregate of R11.575 million, with Gimmethegreenlight sired lots averaging an impressive R771 667 at the 2023 Cape Premier Yearling Sale.
South Africa’s Champion Sire of 2020-2021, Gimmethegreenlight is again heading the South African General Sires List for the 2022-2023 season.
