Double for Oratorio on two continents!

It was a day of jubilation yesterday at Avontuur as  the incredible news came through that talented son of Oratorio, Military Attack had continued his fantastic run of wins by travelling to Singapore from Hong Kong, to win the Gr 1 Singapore Airlines International Cup over 2000m!

With prize money of more than US$ 2.3 million and the fulfillment of a life long dream for trainer John Moore to add a Gr 1 on foreign soil to his record, this achievement was both a highlight for Oratorio fans and a heart-warming  event for a trainer who at 63, is nearing compulsary retirement in Hong Kong.  However, we look forward to many more exciting races from this champion colt with John thinking of sending him to Australia for the Gr 1 Cox Plate in October.

As if this was not enough for one day, late yesterday we heard that Biz the Nurse by Oratorio won the Gr 2 Italian Derby in Rome in fine style!

With Oratorio now introduced to the racing and breeding fraternity in SA after a successful launch at Avontuur Estate last Thursday, we believe that his career on South African soil will add immeasurably to our overall breeding success and these achievements on two continents will assist with cementing his already stellar reputation.
