Lot 9 – LOVE TO GIVE (3yr chestnut filly by Philanthropist) - UNRACED

Bought at the 2018 National Yearling Sale for R160 000 from Wicklow Stud as LOT 456

Following pre-training with Jane Thomas, she has been in training with Tara Laing since early May, always with a view to racing her as a three year old given her Classic English pedigree which traces back to Group One performers like Midnight Line, Together (Champion Miler in Ireland), Prix de l’Abbaye winner Imperial Beauty and sire, Jan Vermeer. However, this year her pedigree enjoyed significant updates with the multiple Group wins of Communique, the improving galloper of Mark Johnstone whose next start is rumoured to be the Gr.1 Cox Plate in Australia.


Like Lots 10, 16 and 20, Love To Give has 15 months of conditioning investment (worth R100 000) behind her and offers her new owners the prospect of stepping onto the racecourse within a few months. She is now stabled at Roy Magner at Randiesfontein for viewing.
