Cape Racing Sales will be staging their 2023 Mare & Weanling Sale on 12 June and the Winter Sale on 16 June, at Hollywoodbets Kenilworth Racecourse. Vendors are invited to send in their entries for both auctions. Entries are due on 20 March.

The CRS Mare & Weanling Sale is, as always, a place where vendors present bloodstock for shrewd buyers and stud farms, who are given an opportunity to acquire quality mares for their broodmare barns, while astute pickers can find themselves future racing prospects among young, undeveloped thoroughbreds. Entry forms are live and can be downloaded in PDF format, HERE.

The old Farm Sale has been re-invented as the Winter Sale – a Yearling auction open to all vendors and traditionally well supported by buyers. A minimum auction price of R15,000 will apply to all lots.

The annual Farm Sale Race remains a part of the Winter Sale. Buyers will be invited to ‘tick the box’ at a race levy of R5,000, to qualify for the 2024 renewal, for which the date and prize money will be announced.

Note that entries for the Winter Sale will be subject to Cape Racing Sales’ new vendor commission structure – a levy of 5% will be charged instead of 8%, to assist vendors and breeders with their costs. Entry forms, live and in PDF format, HERE

Only horses registered in the General Stud Book of South Africa at the time of sale will be auctioned.
