TBA Sales Complex, Gosforth Park, South Africa
27 - 28 April 2014

There was great excitement for the Backworth Stud team at the opening session of the 2014 Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale this afternoon.

The first seven figure lot sold at NYS 2014 came just five lots into proceedings when lot 5 Alloy, the Backworth-bred son of champion sire Silvano out of Refined Gold, was knocked down to Form Bloodstock for an even R1 million.

The bay colt is out of a winning daughter of Rich Man’s Gold (broodmare sire of SASCOC Triple Crown victor Louis The King).

Named Alloy, the R1 million colt is from the same family as previous Triple Crown winner, and promising sire, Horse Chestnut, as well as champion Monyela and this season’s smart 3-year-old filly, Close The Gap.

Congratulations to Form Bloodstock who have purchased a quality colt with a world-class pedigree!

Thank You!

Backworth Stud

To our buyers and bidders, the underbidders and the brave hearted, and those who traipsed the TBA Sale Grounds in pursuit of their racy thoroughbred - ‘Thank You’ for your participation and support!

At Backworth we continually strive to raise the profile of our stock, our Stud and our relationships, and we hope that our 2011 Vintage offered at this year’s National Sale, proves that we were worth backing!

The week ended well with our sales average up, our turnover up, and with great performances from our 2010 Vintage purchased at the 2012 KZN Yearling Sales, we give thanks and toast ‘Colour of Courage’s (Judpot / Exclusive Honour) victory in the Grade 2 Umkhomazi Stakes for trainer Mike Miller, and to ‘Dazzle’ (Muhtafal / Lady Electric) breaking her maiden in emphatic style for trainer Glen Kotzen.

We look forward to meeting again - on the track, in the auction ring, and through continuing industry interaction.

Thank You!

Keith and Ian
