It is with disbelief that we share the death of Dillyn, our trusted manager, after succumbing to a short illness. He will be remembered for his pride in all things Backworth, his love for the animals, his care and concern for the team, and the genuine relationships he had with many. The gentle heart beat of Backworth has stopped beating.
EMPERORS PALACE NATIONAL YEARLING SALE
TBA Sales Complex, Gosforth Park, South Africa
27 - 28 April 2014
The showpiece of South African yearling sales, the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sale, is rapidly approaching… now just a few days away!
The Nationals take place at the TBA Sales Complex in Gosforth Park, Germiston and Backworth Stud consigns a select draft including a classy, quality Silvano colt, a well grown, scopey daughter of sensational second season sire Judpot, a superb colt by champion Western Winter with a near perfect confirmation, and a magnificent, extremely athletic filly with an illustrious pedigree by Muhtafal.
We look forward to seeing you at the sales!
Dillyn Brijlal has recently been promoted to Farm Manager at Backworth Stud.
Dillyn is taking the responsibility seriously and continues to maintain the Backworth property and Management of the Horses to the highest professional standard, and with the attention to detail, for which Backworth is renowned.
We look to Dillyn and his Stud team, which includes Patrick Chiutsi (Stud Foreman) and Robert Mbele (Assistant Stud Foreman), to prepare the Yearlings for various Sales this year under guidance from the experienced eye of owner Keith Russon.
We couldn’t resist this… Johan Alberts, Dillyn Brijlal and Taz brave the KZN ‘early morning’ winter elements as part of their daily preparation of the Backworth Stud draft for the upcoming KZN Yearling Sales at Suncoast, Durban, 5-6 July 2012. Johan and Dillyn are seen above sporting the latest in Estonian ‘hat fashion’… courtesy of our recent trip to Estonia.
