#SAFbred On Hong Kong International Sale


The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) will host its annual International Sale on Sunday, June 27, with a 22-horse catalogue evenly split between Northern and Southern Hemisphere pedigrees.

South Africa has a sole representative—Lot 19 Winter’s Warning (What A Winter-Surabi) from Millstream Farm (above).

This is the female line descending from Rathmor Stud in Nottingham Road and the colt bears a striking resemblance to his star 2nd dam, Gypsy Queen – the dam of amongst her many Black Type’s, South African and American Gr1 winner Gypsy’s Warning.

The colt was purchased by the HKJC at the National Yearling Sale (NYS) on 24 April 2019 for exactly R1 million.

We will have a bigger interest a year from now, as Justin Vermaak bought three crackers at this year’s NYS on behalf of the HKJC.

Power Factor (Silvano — Princess Royal), Basman Palace (Silvano — Noor), and Hopjes (Gimmethegreenlight — Mocha Special) Fetched an impressive R4,5m between them.

The HKJC International Sale will occur this coming Sunday from 10am local time (4pm SA) in the parade ring at Sha Tin racecourse.

It will be called by auctioneer Robert Sleigh of Sotheby’s, with daily inspections ongoing this week since the 22 horses galloped on-track last Saturday morning. The gallops were not timed, but can be viewed via the HKJC website.

Each of the 22 horses has been strenuously pre-vetted pre-export from their countries of origin, with a similar strategy post breeze-ups.

A live broadcast of the Sale will occur via the HKJC website and the full catalogue is available online.
