Soetendal Estate is excited to be represented for the first time at the Cape Premier Yearling Sale, and we are bringing Lot 68, a classy son of FIRE AWAY out of a HIGH CHAPARRAL mare, from the family of INTELLIGENCE CROSS and SWEET ORANGE.
His two-year old half-sister, FAMOUS LADY, recently won her first start in Johannesburg in impressive style, and this colt looks equally racy.
This colt has grown into a superb type, and it’s hard to fault him. He has a strong resemblance to his sire, and is a fluent mover. With the likes of stakes winners My Golly Molly and Egyptian Mau leading the way, Fire Away is already at 9% stakes winners to runners, and doesn’t look like stopping here.
For pedigree enthusiasts, this mating is not only a 20/20 match on G1 Goldmine, but also a Perfect Match (only one in twenty-five 20/20 matches is a perfect match). On the newer Pedigrees360 platform, the colt also scores exceptionally well.
Apart from sales preparation, Soetendal Estate has become well-known as a spelling and pretraining facility, with recent stakes-winning graduates including the likes of October Morn (Gr2 Cartier Sceptre Stakes), Royal Aussie (3rd Gr1 King’s Plate), Future Variety (Listed Sophomore Sprint), and Questioning (Gr3 Cape Classic).
