The great run of success enjoyed by graduates of the Klawervlei Farm Sale continued unabated this weekend, with Hard To Play making an impressive debut on Sunday.

Hard To Play, bred by Dr Ian Heyns, really caught the eye when running on strongly to score first time out over 1200m at Scottsville for trainer Wendy Whitehead and jockey Craig Zackey, with the latter raving about the two-year-old after the race. Sunday’s winner races for his trainer, in partnership with Messrs Perkins and Sinnema.

A scopey colt said to have a tremendous personality, the laid-back Hard To Play is the latest bargain to have been sold off a Klawervlei Farm Sale, with the two-year-old costing a mere R50 000 at the 2016 Farm Sale and he looks sure to build on this impressive first up victory.

Hard To Play, a son of Fastnet Rock’s G2 Dingaans winning son Curved Ball, is one of a number of promising juveniles to have emerged from last year’s Farm Sale, with others including G3 Protea Stakes/Listed Storm Bird Stakes winner Barrack Street

Other Klawervlei Farm Sale graduates to have made a big impression this year include the undefeated Social Order, and G1 Investec Cape Derby/G1 Daily News 2000 winner Edict Of Nantes, who ran a cracking third in the recent G1 Vodacom Durban July and who is a leading contender for Equus award honours this season.

To date, Edict Of Nantes (a R360 000 buy from the 2015 Farm Sale) has earned more than R2.5 million in prize money.
