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

“The goal of any breeding operation must surely be to produce stakes horses, and for that reason one has to make special mention of Riverton Stud who had the highest strike rate of stakes winners this past season (excluding farms with only a few runners) with 18% stakes winners/runner. Riverton Stud has produced the winner of the G1 Tsogo Sun Medallion three out of the last four years (Captain of All, Link Man and Potent Power). South African Racing Review 2013


Our philosophy is to allow nature to dictate maturity without artificial interference which we believe is detrimental to the athlete.
