KLAWERVLEI Stud’s exciting young stallion Warm White Night has made a tremendous start to his stud career. South Africa’s current leading first crop was once again in the headlines at the past weekend’s CTS March Yearling Sale where his offspring proved most popular in the sales ring.
Warm White Night was the sales’ leading sire by aggregate at the March Sale, with his 18 lots grossing R2.15 million, and placing him above such top sires as Var, Trippi, Dynasty and Klawervlei’s perennial leading sire Captain Al.

The son of Western Winter also boosted a more than healthy average of R139 444- well above the sales’ average of R118 945.
Leading trainer Geoff Woodruff was clearly impressed by Warm White Night –splashing out R350 000 to acquire lot 75. This Klawervlei bred filly, catalogued as lot 75, is out of the well bred National Emblem mare The Black Pearl. As yet unnamed, this filly is bred on the same cross as Warm White Night’s impressive recent winner Kemal Kavur.
A son of triple champion sire Western Winter, and from the hugely potent Gone West male line, Warm White Night was an outstanding racehorse who won or placed in seven graded races and earned over R1.6 million in stakes.
To date, he has been represented by nine first crop runners, of which no fewer than six have won or finished in the money.
A sire whose future looks as golden as his pedigree!
