SA Champ Val de Ra back home!

Avontuur Estate and Thoroughbred Farm is proud, relieved and very happy to announce that champion race mare Val de Ra is safely back on South African soil with her sprightly 8-month old Oasis Dream filly!

After a long and tiring 6-days long trip via Amsterdam from the UK, the duo was happy to reach firm ground and a warm stable last night.  This morning Val de Ra had a relaxing stroll around the paddocks, checking out the new environment.

With a month in quarantine still to come for the foal, we are so looking forward to welcoming her to Avontuur itself soon.  Val de Ra will go straight to the Drakenstein Stud pregnant mare quarantine facility until she foals down safely, so we expect her home at the end of October.

She is in foal to Frankel at the moment and thereafter the plan is for her to visit Oratorio.
