After finishing second to the recently retired Rafeef in the Gr1 Computaform Sprint just a length off and three lengths off Bull Valley in the Gr1 Tsogo Sun Sprint, Talktothestars bounced back again to take on Search Party in a dualling finish for the Gr2 Post Merchants.

The son of Overlord fought bravely to catch up and finish second by a quarter of a length off at Greyville over the sprint of 1200m under Bernard Fayd’ Herbe carrying 60kg, two kilograms more than the winner.

Wild One, a KZN Yearling Sale graduate.

The Byzantine, a handsome son of Crusade in the green and black silks of Greenstreet Bloodstock ran a much improved race for a very close second to Kali’s Champ.

Trained by Gavin Van Zyl, the juvenile colt flew up under Warren Kennedy over the 1600m and will be a force to be reckoned with next time out. We have a full brother to The Byzantine on the KZN Yearling Sale as Lot 46.

We are headed to the KZN Yearling Sale this week – see our draft below. Our past KZN Yearling Sale graduates include Gr1 Gold Cup winner, Wild One.
