A Pivotal draft at National 2-y-o sale

Heversham Park Farm’s resident sire Wings Of Desire (photo) has a truly exceptional pedigree. Winner of the G2 Dante Stakes (a race won previously by subsequent top South African sire Hobnob), Wings Of Desire is not only a full-brother to G2 winners Eagle Top and The Lark, he is also a three-parts brother to outstanding filly Sariska, winner of both the G1 Investec Oaks and Darley Irish Oaks in 2009.

Wings Of Desire, who also hails from the same female line as recent standouts Magna Grecia and St Mark’s Basilica as well as legendary stallions Hyperion and Sir Tristram, is one of 160 stakes winners sired by the late great Pivotal.

The latter, also an outstanding broodmare sire, has become a highly successful sire of sires thanks to the likes of his top-class sons Siyouni, Farhh and Kyllachy to name but three!

Heversham will be bringing no fewer than seven two-year-olds by Wings Of Desire to the upcoming November Two Year Old Sale. They include the filly (Lot 39) from the immediate family of globetrotting G2 winner Kapil, the half-sister (Lot 41) to Derby Trial winner and G1 SA Derby runner up Pagoda, and the half-sister (Lot 173) to the dam of G1 Allan Robertson Championship winner Vernichey.

Other well bred two-year-olds to be found in this draft include the Erupt filly (Lot 2) out of dual G3 winner Katy’s Lane, and the Willow Magic half-sister (Lot 179) to former Listed Derby Trial victor Bankable Teddy.

This draft can be found in Block D at the TBA complex in Germiston, and they can be viewed in the days leading up to the 2022 November Two Year Old Sale.  – Bloodstock SA.
