JUSTIN Vermaak rates Kingston Park (Lot 10, NYS Wednesday), as one of the best buys of his career and it’s easy to see why.

This well conformed, beautifully balanced colt from Ascot Stud is hugely pleasing on they eye and has a pedigree to go with his looks.

Kingston Park is the 11th foal of the prolific black-type producer, Larapinta (Al Mufti), from one of the best families in the South African Stud Book—Arabian Lass, Smart Banker, Banker’s Gold, National Banker, Princely Affair, et al. Could she have thrown another star here? A steal at R350,000 says she has!

“Kingston Park will be syndicated and will go into training with Johan Janse Van Vuuren,” Vermaak said.

GSB’s other buy on Day One was Lot 152, a colt by Master Of My Fate from Santiago (by Fort Wood), from Drakenstein Stud. “He’s a ripper, very nice,” said Justin of the colt, who will be going into training with Justin Snaith.
