With both our stallions currently leading various sires lists, we’re happy to report that Var and Oratorio are performing well and have clearly bounced back from their health niggles over the last year. Oratorio still has a few spots left on his book and for Var we’ve opened up a few more covers for the season. If you have a mare in mind and want to take us up on the offer, contact Pippa Mickleburgh at stud@avontuurestate.co.za. To see more about their recent successes, visit our website.

FOALS AND THEIR ANTICS KEEP US AND VISITORS ENTERTAINED
With the 2018 foaling season now successfully behind us, the Stud team can spend their time looking after the new arrivals and their moms instead of attending to the late night and early morning births! For some reason we have a nice big group of colts this year and with no major problems over the period, we look forward to seeing them all grow and perform. (Photographs: Liesl King)

BLOOD STOCK UPDATE
Some of our more famous moms are happily looking after their new foals and we’re already looking forward to some brand-new babies being born in 2019. Val de Ra has a Trippi
filly at foot and is safely in foal to Champion sire Silvano. Race queen River Jetez is looking after a Silvano colt and is in foal to him. Our gorgeous white Sarabande has a Var filly at
foot and is in foal to Oratorio. Visit our website to read more…
