Avontuur’s red-hot sire Var dominates the entries for the Gr1 Computaform Sprint.
This R1 million feature will be run at Turffontein on April 26th, and has attracted 15 entries at this stage.
Remarkably, of these 15, no fewer than six are sired by Var!
South Africa’s king of speed’s runners include the Gr1 winners Contador and Via Africa, as well as recent Gr3 Tommy Hotspur Handicap winner Miss October.
Var, who was the leading sire at the 2014 March Yearling Sale, has enjoyed a tremendous run of success of late.
His feature race winners over the past weekend included Variety Club, a spectacular winner of the Gr2 Godolphin Mile on World Cup night, and Via Africa – who scored a repeat win in the Listed Kwa Zulu Natal Stakes.
