AllanBloodlines appointed to syndicate Giant’s Causeway full brother
After a rain-lashed broodmare sale viewing day at Durbanville Racecourse near Cape Town, Oaklands Estate and Arc En Ciel, both go ahead farms in the Western Cape, entertained a large number of South African breeders at a party and stallion parade.
Oaklands had appointed Allan Bloodlines to carry out the syndication of one of the most exciting young stallions to arrive in South Africa. TIGER DANCE – a 2yo winner on Irish Champion Stakes Day and Gr.3 placed for Ballydoyle – is full brother to the great racehorse and already sire of sires GIANT’S CAUSEWAY and to a brand new kid on the block, YOU’RESOTHRILLING, 2yo filly winner of the Gr.3 Swordlestown Stud Sprint.With David Allan and Joanne Knowles on hand, TIGER DANCE impressed all who managed a good look in poor light. Oaklands will retain a large block of shares and will send 40 mares, but a good number of very high quality breeders took up the share option of R 130,000 with two nominations in the first year.Allan Bloodlines continues a dialogue with breeders and investors considering taking shares, as well as those wanting individual nominations at R 35,000.
