Breeding season update
The Avontuur team delivered 25 foals in 2019 with most of the mares already in foal again to an impressive group of sires which will ensure that Avontuur’s next crop are winners too.

Sires do us proud
We’re celebrating after Oratorio reached no 1 on the AEPR sire’s list recently as well as clocking up his 55th Stakes winner. Var keeps up the good work too and is producing gorgeous and successful progeny who keep the excitement levels up every time they appear!
