Gina Goldsmith bought a One World (Captain Al) colt consigned by Drakenstein Stud for R1 million and that was the only seven figure lot at the Cape Racing Sales Winter Yearling Sale today.

The One World colt is out of Trippi mare Cape Bluebell. who ran nine times for a win over 1400m at Hollywoodbets Scottsville and four places.

Her first foal by Futura, a filly called Cape Flower, is yet to race after being purchased at a sale for R50,000.

The colt is called One Cape.

His second dam is State Blue, a National Assembly sprinter whose seven wins included the  Gr 3 Champagne Stakes over 1200m at Kenilworth, which she won by an easy 3,25 lengths. She also won two Listed races at Fairview and was a hard-knocker in Graded sprints, including two Gr 2 seconds to Equus Champion Sprinter Val de Ra and Covenant respectively and she finished fourth in one of her two attempts at the Gr 1 SA Fillies Sprint.

The One World/Trippi cross has already produced One More, who won on debut and was fourth in the Gr 1 Gold Medallion as well as the promising twice winner All Out For Six.

The Captain Al/Trippi cross has produced the Gr 1 winner Miss Florida.

The results of the Sale were pleasing:

AGGREGATE 14,730,000
AVERAGE 171,279
MEDIAN 135,000


One World was the top sire on aggregate and his six lots went for an average that was not far behind the country’s most popular sire, Vercingetorix, who had five lots sold.
