THE annual Klawervlei farm sale, coupled with the Kuda Golf Day is undoubtedly one the best social occasions of the year. There is a chance, too, to secure excellent bloodstock at value prices and this year an additional sale to reduce mares, foals and weanlings has been added to Klawervlei’s programme.
The festivities starts with the Kuda Insurance Golf Day this Friday, 14 June, followed by the farm sale on Saturday and the mare sale on Sunday.
Klawervlei’s John Koster commented: “The theme for the Klawervlei farm sale has remained the same over the past 8 years. Most importantly, the yearlings are not prepared in the conventional way by being overfed and blanketed to keep shiny coats.
“The yearlings are rough and tough, two attributes for soundness in training and incentive to Pinhook for later sales. The horses are sold in a relaxed atmosphere at the place of their birth with minimum fuss.”
Klawervlei is synonymous with producing fun times for all the racing and breeding folk that attend. It is a country style sale with warm fires, braai smoke, great cuisine, a honk- tonk band and much mirth and laughter.
The catalogue contains yearlings by champion SA sires Captain Al and Trippi, Gr1 producing sires Twice Over, Pomodoro, Duke Of Marmalade, What a Winter, Greys Inn, Querari and Gimmethegreenlight, exciting young stallions Vercingetorix, Soft Falling Rain, Captain Of All, Master Of My Fate, Potala Palace and Coup de Grace.
