"Start them right and you'll never look back!"

 Our favourite Vuma Champion, J J the Jet Plane kept the South African flag flying at Meydan on Saturday when winning the Al Quoz Sprint on Dubai World Cup night - our very best wishes to Lucky Houdalakis and all the connections! This has truly been an amazing journey and we hope that someone is drafting a book!

River Jetez ran a creditable second in the Dubai Duty Free, ensuring that Jet Master stamps himself firmly at the head of South Africa's leading stallions.

The $10Million World Cup Race was a bittersweet 1st and 2nd for the Japanese, with these victories following so soon after the earthquake and tsunami that ravaged their home country.

All of this excitement took place less than 3 weeks ahead of the Emperors Palace National Yearling Sales, which start at 1pm on Friday 15th April.

Vuma founders and stalwart clients, Summerhill Stud, will be there with their draft of 40 yearlings, all of which have had their foundations on Vuma Horse Feed. Ask the 6 time champion breeders what helped them get to their current position on the breeders log and they won't hesitate to say that the fundamental changes that they made to their feeding regime is what made the difference.

Utilising international research, the feeds are formulated to provide a nutrient dense, highly palatable feed containing the best vitamins and minerals allowing for steady growth.

These foundations lay down strong collagen and bone giving the young horse a superior start and ensuring that they train on (in the case of Hear the Drums, for 34 wins).

 So if you want to join the Champions, your best bet is to start off with Vuma Vitality and Vuma Vigour.

Once in training the highly digestible Vuma Upstart and Vuma Racer ensure high energy and a superior amino acid profile for repair and recovery.

Popular trainer, client and friend of Vuma and Summerhill, Basil Marcus, is launching his training career in Singapore. He has just ended the Cape season with a string of wins; among them a treble, including the Cape Breeders Club Jamaica Handicap on Saturday 16 January, the same day that his Singapore-bound horses left Cape Town, and two on J&B Met day!

Basil started training in 2003 shortly after hanging up his boots, having ridden more than 3000 winners and having been seven-time champion jockey in Hong Kong. Basil has been training in Cape Town where he had more than 120 horses in his string and was consistently among the leading trainers. The yard will continue to operate with the remaining horses, while Basil is in Singapore.

His major training successes, include winning the G1 Cape Guineas and the G1 Cape Derby with Jay Peg, who went on to win the 2008 Singapore Airlines International Cup and the 2008 Dubai Duty Free, trained by Herman Brown. Basil also trained the Summerhill-bred Desert Links, winner of the G1 Canon Gold Cup in 2008. Desert Links will return to his care after finishing third in the Group 1 Singapore Gold Cup in November when prepared by David Hill.

Basil was granted his licence by the Singapore Turf Club in June 2009 and will be based in the new stable complex at Kranji racecourse. The first thirty two horses left Cape Town on 16 January and are settled in Singapore, in preparation for the upcoming season. The string includes Ready to Run graduate Trafalgar Legacy, by Rock of Gibraltar and we look forward to watching their success.

The Vuma team wishes Basil every success in his new chapter – We love to feed your Champions!
