BREAKING NEWS: SAf National Sale Date Changed
Africa’s leading yearling sale, Bloodstock South Africa’s Emperors Palace National Sale, has a new date for 2014. Originally set down for April 24 & 25, the sale will now take place in Johannesburg on April 27 & 28. TBA South Africa CEO, Tom Callaghan, is particularly upbeat about the 2014 renewal of the sale that has produced many of the country’s best ever gallopers, as well as high profile graduates racing in the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai. Callaghan noted that, with an exchange rate of R16.35 to the British pound, overseas buyers – buoyed by a number of South African-bred international Group performers – are taking advantage of having their purchases prepared in South Africa and then shipped to the northern hemisphere if their form warrants it.
