Exciting race day for Avontuur at Turffontein

A super win by Avontuur bred Canterbury Tale ended off an exciting day for Avontuur supporters at Turffontein in Johannesburg yesterday.  Owned by Markus Jooste and trained by SA champion trainer Mike de Kock, this Grey’s Inn racer did us all proud in the Gr 2 Gold Bowl over 3200 m.  Jockey Raymond Danielson rode a classy race and the win bodes well for further winners from our mare, Classique Story. Congratulations from all of us at the farm!

 

After the nail biting finish by Via Africa just a lenght after What a Winter earlier in the day in the Gr 1 Computaform Sprint, spirits were high, especially as we had 2 VAR’s in the top 4 in that race!
