Rafeef relatives catch the eye

5th Feb 2018

Highlands Stud part of Ridgemont’s exciting young stallion Rafeef is related to a number of horses making waves throughout the country.

Redoute’s Choice

His full-brother, and unbeaten Equus Champion, Mustaaqeem, is set to make his eagerly awaited three-year-old debut when he lines up in a progress plate at the Vaal on Thursday.
The son of Redoute’s Choice will face seven rivals, as he makes his seasonal debut for trainer Mike de Kock and jockey Callan Murray.

Unbeaten in two outings as a two-year-old, Mustaaqeem earned his Equus title with a four length romp in the G1 SA Nursery last season.

Impressive filly The Bungalow, who broke her maiden by six lengths at the second time of asking on Sunday, is another close relative of Rafeef.
The Bungalow, herself a R2.1 million buy from the 2016 Cape Premier Yearling Sale, is out of the four time winning National Assembly mare Captivating Party –a full-sister to champion National Colour, dam of Rafeef and Mustaaqeem. National Colour, Joint South African Horse Of The Year in 2005-2006,  won eight races, including the G1 Computaform Sprint and G1 Mercury Sprint and was second in Britain’s G1 Nunthorpe Stakes.

National Colour

National Colour will be represented by a full-brother to Rafeef and Mustaaqeem at the 2018 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale (Lot 259).

Rafeef, a son of triple Australian champion sire Redoute’s Choice, won six of ten outings headed by the G1 Computform Sprint and G2 Hawaii Stakes.
His first foals arrive in 2018.
