We are only a couple of weeks into the 2011 breeding season and the talk of the farm is centred on Turffontein's cracking first foals. Last week we highlighted to you the lovely Filly he has produced from Michelin Star (pictured below). Hot on the heels of this lovely filly is the above Colt who himself has pleased all concerned so far since his arrival on the 5th of August. He is the 5th live foal for resident mare Nuclear Dance whom herself has already produced the quality Melbourne Winner in Nuclear Force.
Turffontein himself is a lovely looking individual whom saluted twice at Group 1 Level, defeating the likes of Wanted and Nicconi and after covering a quality book of mares in 2010, @ $8800 in 2011 he looks tremendous value.
