CPYS Lot 21, a quality Gimmethegreenlight filly from Millstream Stud. 

 

Jan Mantel, a believer in quality over quantity, has a six-strong selection of yearlings from his Millstream Farm, coming to the 2023 Cape Premier Yearling Sale at the Cape Town International Convention Centre next week.

Jan gave his views on the choice lots from the Robertson farm, listed below:

Lot 21 – Unnamed filly by Gimmethegreenlight ex Captain Ahoy (Captain Al): “A good looking filly from the super family of Captain’s Emblem. She is the second foal of Captain’s Ahoy whose first foal Captain Peg (Jay Peg) is a smart race filly from Stuart Pettigrew’s yard.”

Lot 30 – Lava Fire, a colt by Erupt ex Forty Fires x Western Winter: “A big, strong horse from the Red Ray/Brutal Force family.”

Lot 35 – Unnamed colt by Oratorio ex Ghaliya by Galileo: “He is the second foal out of a lovely Galileo mare from the family of Danehill. A strong, handsome fellow with a lot of scope.”

Lot 36 – a colt by Pomodoro ex Gilded Minaret by Al Mufti: “A half-brother to stakes winner Mount Anderson, he is a strong horse who has done his mare proud. Nice, promising type!”

Lot 68 – Unnamed filly by Gimmethegreenlight ex No Doubt by Philanthropist: “A well-balanced, good walker from the immediate family of Vercingetorix.”

Lot 121 – a Rafeef colt ex Black Banca (Tale Of The Cat): “A fourth foal, a big scopey colt. The sale might be just a bit early for him, but he is well balanced with a beautiful hindquarter and may surprise us.”
