TWO ALLAN PURCHASES IN THE CAPE
2yo colt and filly join the roster at Equimark Ready to Runs
24th Jan 2008
At Durbanville Racecourse yesterday, the sales company Equimark presented around 130 2 year olds that had been seen breezing during the previous two mornings.In a generally low key sale conducted in 33 degree temperatures - helped later in the afternoon by a different kind of breeze, Allan Bloodlines sought out a colt by underrated stallion FANATIC DANE, a New Zealand bred son of DANEHILL. He will join Vaughan Marshall and should be able to race, all going well, within a couple of months or less.Later, a "filly with a pedigree" by CASEY TIBBS out of an SA Oaks placed mare was secured by Allan. This attractive individual has an extremely strong 2nd dam in support and had gone well in the gallops. Nevertheless she needs time to develop further physically. She will be given that time at Arc En Ciel Stud near Wellington, an hour or so from Cape Town, and could perhaps go into training in three months from now.
