14. Stellenbosch Jet Master Strategic Quest Eightfold Path
Bought as part of a package from Knut Haug, the unraced Stellenbosch made a great start to her career as a broodmare when her first foal by Toreador, Hottentots Holland, made a winning debut and in the process easily beat subsequent Stakes performer, Pretty Border, who finished close up in the Listed Oaks Trial, Gr.2 SA Oaks and Gr.2 Gerald Rosenberg, only beaten 2.9 lengths by Return Flight in the last mentioned race. Hottentots Holland sadly suffered a foot injury after the race and was rested for the winter with the intention of bringing her back into training in the spring of this year. Stellenbosch has since thrown a quality 2yr old colt by Eightfold Path and a yearling filly by Flying The Flag (selling as Lot 34) on this catalogue. Based on the success of Jet Master mares with Eightfold Path, in particular The Rising Legend, Stellenbosch is again carrying to the son of Giant’s Causeway.
