Buffalo Bill Cody’s first runner Pistol Pete won on debut and this Tony Peter-trained colt is appearing again on Saturday at Turffontein Standside (JC Photos) 

Buffalo Bill Cody’s first runner was a winner and there have been whispers around the training tracks about the quality of his first crop.

The Redoute’s Choice stallion has ten lots on the BSA Cape Yearling Sale, which is to be held on Sunday 25 February.

The most eyecatching pedigree among them might be a Wilgerbosdrift Stud-bred filly called Rachel Wall.

She is out of a High Chaparral half-sister to the great Igugu.

Her pedigree brings a cross between two of the most prolific stakes producing sires in history, Danehill and Sadler’s Wells.

John Everett of Narrow Creek Stud believes Buffalo Bill Cody is making an impact already, judging by the number of enquiries he is getting about his progeny at Narrow Creek.

John believes he might have the best Buffalo Bill Cody for the BSA Cape Yearling Sale, lot 97, a colt out of one-time winning Trippi mare Musical Romance. That makes this colt a half-brother to Jackson filly Freed From Desire, whose six wins included the Listed Swallow Stakes over 1160m.
