Breeding & Sales
All foals have been delivered safely, which in thoroughbred breeding is quite an achievement. Well done stud team! A couple of highlights of the new arrivals has to be the half-sister to champion colt Tempting Fate as well as the impressive looking Bambina Stripes filly by Vercingetorix.

On the stallion front, Var has worked admirably on limited mares despite his age and we’ve had great support for Oratorio especially his loyal shareholders. No doubt some exciting progeny of these two classy stallions to grace the tracks in years to come.

Preparation is well underway for 7 of our yearlings heading to the Cape Premier Yearling Sales on the 28th of January. The new venue for the sales at De Grendel Wine Estate will certainly offer a pleasant experience. For more info on Avontuur Stud, sales and breeding contact 021 855 3450 or stud@avontuurestate.co.za.

Racing
We had a promising return to race sponsorship over the past weekend, albeit small, it was great to see our green and white brand on the refurbished Kenilworth Track - exciting for Cape Racing. The excitement doubled when our sponsored jockey Luke Ferraris won the race on Malmoos for loyal supporter Mike De Kock. Luke is flying our flag high around the country whilst MJ Byleveld recovers from his unfortunate injury. Hang in there MJ.

The Cape Summer Season is well on its way and our champion, Tempting Fate, runs again in early December. All the competitive and exciting racing action happening around the country this season is not to be missed.
