The catalogue for the 2020 Cape Premier Yearling Sale is now available for viewing and is currently online at www.capethoroughbredsales.com
Set to take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre, in the very heart of Cape Town itself, the Premier Sale is a relatively young auction on the sales calendar, but has established itself in a short space of time (it was first held in 2011) as a prime source of G1 winners.
Among the G1 winners to have come off past Cape Premier Sales are the likes of Attenborough, Cloth Of Cloud, Chimichuri Run, Lady Of The House, Real Princess, Soft Falling Rain, William Longsword and Yorker.
This year’s sale is set to take place on January 16th next year, with 232 yearlings catalogued for the sale.
Top sires Dynasty, Gimmethegreenlight, Querari, Silvano, Trippi, Var, Vercingetorix, and What A Winter all have strong drafts on offer at this year’s sale, while the Irish based G1 winner Zoffany, whose progeny include this year’s G1 Qatar Prix Marcel Boussac winner Albigna, has a half-sister to G1 Hollywood Gold Cup winner Rail Trip.
Querari’s G3 winning half-brother Quasillo, Computaform Sprint winner Rafeef, Western Winter’s brilliant son Red Ray, and former Premier Sale graduate William Longsword are among the first year sires represented at this year’s sale.
The 2020 Premier Sale is scheduled to get underway at 13:00pm sharp.
