Black Swan’s notes from the desk of Peter De Beyer

Black Swan Stud’s Peter De Beyer has filed notes on his draft of six yearlings to go through the ring at the Tattersalls Cape Premier Yearling Sale this Thursday, with additional notes and catalogue updates below that:

Lot 19: Filly by Gold Standard ex Elusive Heart:
A light framed leggy filly who stands over ground. She is correct and walks beautifully, using herself well. She has a keen eye in a very pretty head.

Lot 37 Filly by Elusive Fort ex Goldandsilver:
A sturdy, very correct filly with plenty of heart room, she moves very nicely and is correct. She is slightly up behind at the moment.

Lot 101 Filly by Canford Cliffs ex Sylvie:
Stunning filly who walks beautifully and is very well balanced . She is correct and strong with a great attitude. A beautiful head, welldeveloped quarters and a plenty of heart room in a deep chest.

Lot 103 Colt by Master of my Fate ex Tequila Blush:
A good sized, handsome colt who is an active walker and uses himself well. He is well grown and correct and stands over ground. He is beautifully put together and has a nice outlook. He has a lovely topline and good shoulder. Correct.

Lot 111 Filly by Master of my Fate ex White Rose:
Well grown and nicely put together filly who is a very purposeful walker with a big stride. A nice sloping shoulder and deep girth, she is very correct and is a good size and a good head.

Lot 118 Colt by Elusive Fort ex Beautiful Noise:
A strong scopey colt with a great backside, strong and correct, he is a very active horse who walks like he is going somewhere. He is correct, has plenty of heart room and has a very handsome head.

De Beyer said: “My two colts are both very nice specimens but the Master of my Fate out of Tequila Blush is my preferred one as she has already produced the stakes winner Helen’s Ideal.

“The filly out of Sylvie by Canford Cliffs is the pick, given that Sylvie already has a stakes winner in Sarah, and is an ideal candidate for the sales incentive race.

“The Gold Standard filly out of Elusive Heart is a lovely first foal, and Elusive Fort is already the broodmare sire of Sound of Warning, by Trippi. Elusive Heart was a top race filly.”

There are a couple of very important updates since the catalogue was published:

Lot 37: Second foal Golden Tatjana won the Trippi Stakes for juveniles on Kings Plate Day, beating a very smart field

First foal: Treasure Hunt now 4 wins

Lot 101: Celtic Rumours (by Vercingetorix) 2019 foal now a winner – so now 4 runners all winners.

Lot 111 the first foal, Pascali, now a winner

Under the second dam, Jimmy Don (Pathfork- Joshlin) 3 wins, including the Listed Secretariat Stakes.
