WHAT A VODACOM DURBAN JULY WEEK - WHAT A WINTER!

Vodacom Durban July
2 July 2011

This past week has seen some incredible highs and some devastating lows. With the Galileo filly, Igugu, winning the Vodacom Durban July and highlighting her dominance of this past racing season, closely followed by Pierre Jourdan, it really puts a feather in the cap of Champion Breeders Summerhill Stud.

Igugu was imported from Australia as a yearling and Pierre Jourdan was born and bred on the farm but both were grown and prepped for the Emperors Palace Ready to Run Sale (albeit a year apart) on Vuma Horse Feed.

Summerhill Stud is the original home of Vuma and they will be the first to tell you that the formulation and feeding of Vuma Feeds was the turning point in their campaign to become the nation's leading breeder. Summerhill-bred horses are known to run more often and for for longer due to their exceptional foundations and superior nutrition.

Our congratulations to Summerhill and all the connections of the winning horses, particularly Sean Tarry and Messrs Nathan and Nestadt for Happy Archer's win in the Grade 1 Garden Province Stakes, as well as to Glen Kotzen and the owners of Princess Victoria for her win in the Grade 1 Golden Slipper.

Also, to the Kotzen team and the Deacons, our sincerest condolences on the loss of Big City Life; he was Big in every way and will be sorely missed.

Following July day, the Vuma team attended the Winter School at the Al Maktoum School of Management Excellence and were privileged to hear some leading lights speaking on various topics related to our Equine Industry - fascinating and inspiring!

Not ones to let the grass grow under our feet, we'll certainly be putting their ideas into practise, so watch this space!

Greyville, Turf, 2200m
2 July 2011

Right now, there is more than a chill in the air and winter's frosty fingers are gripping most parts of the country. Apart from being a fierce reminder that we are in the middle of our South African winter it also the harbinger of Africa's Biggest Horseracing event - the Vodacom Durban July!

Just three weeks away, this year's Right Royal Affair is set to once again, test the country's top horses against each other. Some of the main contenders for the big race include J&B Met winner Past Master, Triple Tiara winning filly, Igugu, as well as the Summerhill-bred Pierre Jordaan.

Bearing in mind that Igugu and Pierre Jordaan both grew up on the strong foundations of Vuma Feed, there will be more than a passing interest in their results.

With things hotting up for the big day, the KZN winter season has got off to a blistering start for some of our current Vuma customers. Trainer Sean Tarry has just saddled the winner of the Lonsdale Stirrup Cup, Vertical Takeoff, who also lines up in the July field while trainer Glen Kotzen who saddled Princess Victoria to win the Allan Robertson Championship, has entered 2009 July winner Big City Life in this year's main event.

At whatever level one participates, July day is set to be an epic event with the who's who lining up on the track and off.

For all our Vuma customers, they know that when it matters most, Vuma is always there and come the first Saturday in July, we will be there in every way - Will you?

Horses are our passion and we love to feed your Champions!

GLEN KOTZEN, BIG CITY LIFE AND THE GOLD CHALLENGE

glen kotzen trainer of imperious star and big city life

HE'S NO "ONE TRICK PONY" THIS FELLOW

Last week, Glen Kotzen made the headlines with yet another Group One winner. Imperious Star added to a growing list of Kotzen-trained fillies to make the Holy Grail of racing.

This week, against the odds, he prevailed again. This time with the man Mattafix made famous, in the Rising Sun Gold Challenge (Gr1).

Anyone at Clairwood will tell you it was a hell of a race. The only horse with any chance of catching the pacemaker was Big City Life. He had the punch, and he had the reserves.

As we've said before, when the chips are down, Vuma will be there.

We'll not let you down.
