HIGHLANDS STALLION EVENING A GREAT SUCCESS
Elusive Fort and Pathfork outstanding young stallions
26th May 2013
The South African penchant for a party was in evidence again courtesy of a major logistical and hospitality exercise by and at Highlands Stud last Wednesday evening. Pink and white fizz and copious tasty bites were served in lovely surroundings, followed later by dinner, dancing and revelling (until 4.30 am by some).
In between was a well stage-managed stallion parade and the headlining Stallion Services Auction which went quickly and very effectively.
Our managed stallion ELUSIVE FORT acquitted himself extremely well first up, if revved up by the loud music and applause - something from which many breeders desisted but others did not. Many stallions were spooked but behaved well. PATHFORK was an outstanding "looker" amongst young sires and CITANO HERNANDO was another to impress. BLUE TIGER drew oohs and aahs of appreciation for a popular runner and SILVANO and DYNASTY provided the royalty.
Allan Bloodlines with Hemel n Aarde Stud purchased the very first WHAT A WINTER service at the auction and a good night was had by all. Many thanks indeed to Highlands people for a lot of successful effort and a superb welcome.
