Although not consignors on the CTS Joburg Ready To Run Sale, we were very impressed with the three Backworth-bred lots presented by Balmoral Stud at the Summerhill gallops.

Bon Voyage to our Ladies!!

Backworth Mares depart for the Cape / Ian Todd (p)

Spring is always an exciting, yet anxious, time for any Stud Farm as the results of years of intricately calculated planning and breeding come to fruition with the arrival of the past season’s foals and the selection of the next season’s Stallions.

This year is a particularly anxious, yet exciting, time for the Backworth team as we bid farewell to a few members of our broodmare band as they embark on their journey to the fairest Cape… and to some impressive Stallion talent too!

By Kingmambo’s son, Mambo In Seattle, a three parts brother to Champion sire, Lemon Drop Kid, out of our Tiger Ridge mare, Sunset Ridge, we reckon this sprightly filly foal is bound to ‘surprise’ as she dances towards her racing sunset.
