KZN BREEDERS AWARDS
Bellwood Cottages
16 November 2013

The annual KZN Breeders Awards takes place once again at the beautiful venue Bellwood Cottages in the KZN Midlands, owned by breeders Willie and Janine Messenger who also happen to have their beautiful Kahal filly Enchanted Kingdom nominated for the event this year. The prestigious Awards evening will take place on Saturday 16 November, 6:00 for 6:30pm.

Once again, the nominees are of a high standard this year and include a number of Group winners and performers - including the first for sire Judpot with Backworth Stud’s (recipient of last year’s Breeding Achievement Award) Colour Of Courage who won the Grade 2 Umkhomazi Stakes, and Admiral’s Eye who place third in a Grade 1 on Vodacom Durban July day for Summerhill Stud’s young Japanese sire Admire Main. Owner Alesh Naidoo has two nominations under the Summerhill banner, with Love Struck and Admiral’s Eye.

KwaZulu-Natal has produced an outstanding crop of two-year-olds; Grade 2 winning Virgo’s Babe stole SA Fillies Nursery by five lengths (bred by Midlands Thoroughbreds) and Princess Julietta by King Of Kings has had two very close and impressive Group performing seconds (bred by Betty and Basil Linington). Julietta stands at Rathmor Stud and has foaled a Kahal, returning to Crusade this season.

Greg Royden-Turner’s Roski-bred Journeyman has been nominated in the Outstanding Two Year Old Colt category, and this young son of Trippi is in quarantine heading to Dubai under the care of champion trainer Mike de Kock. Jimmi Choo, a speedy chestnut colt bred by Cathy and Jonathan Martin of Hadlow Stud, also stands in this category along with Yellow Star’s talented son of Jay Peg, Flash Drive.

As nine time South African champion breeders, Summerhill Stud have a number of entries including Grade 1 SA Classic winner Love Struck and Grade 1 Daily News 2000 second placed No Worries (owned by Brian Burnard). Both are by Kahal.

Kahal who now stands at Bush Hill Stud also features prominently being a champion sire. He has some of the country’s top fillies and mares up for nomination - including the likes of Festival Of Fire (bred by Mr CJ Saunders and Lady O’Reilly), Eastern Greeting (bred by Kjell Foundation), Checcetti (bred by Summerhill) and Enchanted Kingdom (bred by Bellwood Stud).

Gitiano, winner of the KZN Breeders Million Mile this year, has been nominated for Outstanding Middle Distance Male and Outstanding Three Year Old Colt. Bred by Mr Emilio Baseiro, he is a son of Mullins Bay and his dam Poppy Elizabeth has returned to Mullins Bay this season, after foaling a Querari.

Requiem, a son of Danehill who stood for a time at Spring Valley Stud, is the sire of both Jo De Nys’ Rhythmic Roxy and Salutation, both mares up for nomination in the Outstanding Female Stayer category.

Scott Bros have had an outstanding year with their black son of Mogok, The Apache, who seems to be getting better with age. Their nominations include another two sons of Mogok - Meadow Magic who took home the Grade 2 Emerald Cup and Wild One in Outstanding Three Year Old Colt category. They also have the big talented son of Jet Master, E-Jet, nominated for Outstanding Older Male and Outstanding Middle Distance Male. His dam, a grey mare named Esmaltina, now stands at Yellow Star Stud and is owned by Mary Slack of Wilgerbosdrift. She will visit the speedy Kildonan this season.

Seal, the talented staying son of Silvano bred by Dr Ian Heyns born and raised at Bush Hill Stud, is also entered into the category of Outstanding Older Male and Male Stayer.

KZN BREEDERS AWARDS
17 November 2012

The KZN Breeders Association held their annual awards on a misty evening at Bellwood Cottages on 17 November to honour the people and Thoroughbreds that have done the industry proud of the past season.

It was an evening that was very well-attended by prominent breeders, owners and trainers alike. It also included an event which brought much fun and amusement into the exciting atmosphere - the inaugural running of the ‘Donkey Derby’ which was won by Bradley McHardy of Quest For Success Pre-training.

Graeme Hawkins, the COO of Gold Circle, was the Master of Ceremonies for the event and the KZN Breeders Association Chairman, Koos de Klerk, gave both a welcoming and motivating speech regarding the exciting events that have occurred within the ambit of the KZN Breeders of the past year - as well as giving a hint of exciting prospects and plans for the year ahead.

“I want to extend a personal thank you to the board members of KZN Breeders Club and the effort that each of the members put in for the welfare of the club and breeders in KZN,” said Koos de Klerk. “Thank you too to the sponsors of the awards, it is greatly appreciated. We have had a number of initiatives that have borne fruit and will in future include the KZN Breeders Golf Day and KZN Breeders Million Mile Race Day, KZN Yearling Sales and the R1million race initiated for Vodacom Durban July day which is part of the initiative of our Triple Million Challenge. For a horse that can achieve the treble: winning the R1million race on Vodacom Durban July day, the next year’s Million Mile as a three-year-old and the following year as a four year old, a R1million bonus will be paid. Moving ahead, we will have another six races for R200,000 next year on the KZN Breeders Race Day (incorporating the Million Mile). Further details will be announced very soon - all of which will promote racing and breeding in KZN and we hope to see the results of that. We have already seen the success of the 2012 KZN Yearling Sale. Candiese Marnewick has been appointed as an admin manager and we hope to have her at all sales as well as to brand KZN horses, to promote KZN horses and to promote the Breeders Premium Scheme. We are also looking forward to some serious stallion purchases, starting with the announcement of Crusade.”

Congratulations must go to the winners which saw Dancewiththedevil crowned KZN Breeders Horse Of The Year for a second consecutive year. Breeder, owner and trainer St John Gray was on hand to recieve numerous awards which included Broodmare Of The Year for Emperor’s Dance who resides at Cathy and Jonathan Martin’s Hadlow Stud for St John Gray.

KZN Breeders Stallion Of The Year went to Kahal, owned by Shadwell Stud and now standing at Warwick and Karin Render’s Bush Hill Stud. Kahal was represented with a number of nominees on the evening, in particular he stood out as the sire of every nominee in the category of Outstanding Female Sprinter - won ultimately by Mannequin of Summerhill Stud. Bush Hill Stud took home awards for The Mouseketeer in the category of Outstanding Male Sprinter on behalf of breeder Dr Ian Heyns, as well as for the Bush Hill-stud raised Seal for Outstanding Male Stayer.

Summerhill Stud once again took home the award for Leading Breeder Of The Year and achieved wins in a total of five categories - with Extra Zero, Mannequin and Vodacom Durban July runner-up Smanjemanje.

Keith Russon and Ian Todd of Backworth Stud won the award for Breeding Achievement. Backworth Stud had achieved an impressive 53% runners to winners ratio over the last racing season. Backworth’s Variometer, nominee for Outstanding Three-Year-Old Sprinter Female and Outstanding Three-Year-Old Filly had gone onto win the Gardenia Listed Handicap the evening before the awards in a very impressive fashion from a strong field of sprinting fillies that included winner of the Outstanding Female Sprinter categoey, Mannequin (bred by Summerhill Stud).
