South African Yearlings

Var colt and and Jay Peg colt (South African Yearling Package)

Purchased at Cape Premier Yearling Sale in Cape Town, South Africa- January 2012


Listen to a conference call with Terry and Kip Elser discussing these colts and South African racing.

WPT is excited about the opportunity to race internationally, expanding into a new market with horses known for soundness, durability, and success.

Both of the colts below will begin their careers in Cape Town, South Africa with leading South African trainer Dean Kannemeyer, whose conditioned over 50 Grade 1 winners in his career. If they are very successful on the racetrack, it may be viable to bring them to the states during their three or four-year-old seasons. 

Kannemeyer has trained two Equus Award for Horse of the Year recipients two of the past three years, two champion three-year-olds in South Africa, two Durban July (South Africa's most prestigious racing event) winners Dynasty and Eyeofthetiger, and multiple winners of the South African and Cape Guineas.

Terry Finley on these colts, "Two very solid, athletic individuals who were obviously raised the right way. I love the way South African yearlings are prepped for the sales. Unlike America where they are primped for months before, these yearlings were out in the fields right up to the sale. As a result, you've got two horses with great minds, and healthy, sound bodies. The average number of starts for a racehorse in South Africa is 25 – much, much higher than horses in America. If I had to describe them both in three words I'd say, speed, propulsion, and shock absorption."
