Avontuur Estate can now officially claim ” ownership” of one of the world’s best sires with Oratorio in fifth position on the “Leading Sires of 3 yos in Europe” list in order of prize money for 2013. He shares the top spots with giants like Galileo, Teofilo, New Approach and Dansili and can claim a total of 36 winners and more than 1 million pounds in prize money. With fantastic winners like Military Attack this past year, what else can we expect from this world-class stallion.
On local turf, well-known sire VAR, is right up top in third place for 2013 with more than R12 million worth of stakes and 158 wins. Being listed up there with the great Jet Master and Silvano, is a huge accolade for our favourite stallion!
National and provincial awards season is coming up, and we have so many great performers to cheer for with Variety Club, Via Africa, Contador and many more in the running. We’ve also had our best sales season ever, and can only thank our loyal supporters without whom we will not be where we are. We hope to continue delivering what you expect from us in future and believe the support will be there.
