Captain of All wins Gr1 Mercury Sprint in flying form

Thoroughbred Sales

“Nothing happens … but first a dream” Carl Sandburg

Invest in a racehorse from the breeders of Captain of All the 2015 Equus Champion Sprinter, highest Merit Rated horse in SA and with an international ranking of 121 the joint 2nd Best Sprinter in the World.

Riverton Stud consistently produces Winners and Stakes Earners despite a small band of only 12 to 15 yearlings entering the market each year

 

Trainers and owners are becoming more aware of the high wastage caused by poor breeding practices aimed at the sales ring and not the track. This caution is especially relevant when it comes to investing in a race horse at an early sale like the CTS Premier Yearling Sale.

“We breed from mares with poor conformation, we breed from bleeders and horses that have wind problems. Then we put it in a sales prep that includes high carbohydrate diet, confinement in a stable and only walking or lunging as exercise, all to make it as big and as fat as possible for the sales ring –even though this strategy is well documented to be detrimental to skeletal strength. So, we are not preparing our horses with any mind for longevity.  It’s all about quick turnover and a quick buck”. Australian trainer, Mick Kent’s, sound advice for breeders. Turf Talk newsletter dated Tuesday 29 October 2019

 

Our philosophy is to allow nature to dictate maturity without artificial interference which we believe is detrimental to the athlete. See the art of breeding the natural way.
