As one of South Africa’s most respected breeders, Avontuur is proud of its resident stallion, 2004 Champion European Sprinter and champion sire VAR, whose offspring are proving themselves as speedsters of note.

Adding to the excitement around this stallion, the VAR syndicate presents the 3-race VAR series which take place in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban annually. The series reaffirms our commitment to SA racing and aims to re-establish sprint racing in its rightful place on the racing calender.

Avontuur has over the last decade consistently been on the top 10 vendor list at all the national yearling sales and the 2011/2012 season is no exception.

Grade 1 and 2 winners like Val de Ra, August Rush, Variety Club, Villandry, Regal Ransom, Alderry and Townsend and group performers like Jet Trail, Valeta, My Kazzie and Vacherin have been creating waves over the last few years and with loyal support from some of the world’s top owners and trainers, we look forward to ongoing success in the future.

The Estate is also known for its superb broodmare band from around the world,including such Group performers as Minelli, Sarabande, Toga, Alluvial, Wise Dame, Classique Story, Moccachino, Baltic Beauty and A Daughter’s Legacy. Under the expert management of GM Pippa Mickleburgh and with plans to continually upgrade the mares and ensure the services of many of South Africa’s leading sires, we aim to keep on producing the best!

Avontuur Estate boasts some of the country’s best wines and a very popular restaurant and potential buyers are welcome to contact Pippa for a private viewing, some wine tasting and lunch.
