Brood mares – the heartbeat of our business!

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 again.   Our gorgeous white Sarabande has a  Var filly at foot and is in foal to Oratorio. (Photograph: Var filly)

New acquisition Starburst Galaxy (9 time winning daughter of Var) is in foal to Oratorio. Dream de Ra is hoping for a stunning foal from William Longsword and La Normandie (dam of Gr 1 winner Normanz) is showing off a strong filly from the first crop of new sire Rafeef and is in foal to Drakenstein’s new sire Gold Standard.

These are just some of the exciting newcomers we can’t wait to meet in 2019!

We’re saying goodbye to long-standing star of the brood mare band Minelli who is retiring after her last foal, a stunning Oratorio colt.  She has had an illustrious career,  was a stalwart of the stud operation and she deserves a rest now. We wish her many happy years still in our mountain paddocks, far away from the crowds and rush.
