It's sizzling in the City!

Cape Town may be in temperate climes but the racing action this next week is really heating things up!

The CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale starts off on Thursday the 26th of January through Friday the 27th with a very strong catalogue of very well bred and well-related yearlings on offer. There is a lot of depth across the 350 lot book and it is bound to attract a strong buying market. We expect to see some exceptional horses and some record-breaking prices!

Saturday the 28th of January brings the running of the J&B Met! As always, it is the place to be on the last Saturday of January. The field could be quite open except for the presence of sparkling jewel, Igugu! The champion filly has run second only twice in her career and it will be thrilling to see if she can once again hold off the boys, as she did in the Vodacom Durban July!

THE TROUBLE WITH RESOLUTIONS!

Healthy Horse

Happy New Year!

2012 has already kicked off at a cracking pace...

The trouble with New Year's resolutions is that by the time one has made them and thought about implementing them, the year is already ticking along into February and onwards.

Some people don't belive that the new year is any different to the old, yet the difference of that second hand on the big clock ticking away the old year and heralding in the new has a pshycologically refreshing benefit for most of us.

It allows some wiping of the slates to allow us to start anew, whether within our physical or mental selves, work and ambitions, aspirations and goals. Whatever we are looking to change or improve, the new year certainly provides a renewed opportunity to focus on those things.

2012 has already kicked off at a cracking pace, particularly for Justin Snaith and the connections of Gimmethegreenlight who won the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate in a very exciting race. Our congratulations to all.

This month also sees the running of the J&B Met and the CTS Cape Premier Yearling Sale to be held for two days before, on the 26th and 27th January. We wish all our Vuma customers the very best as they show off their horses to the world.

This year will also see a number of South African riders competing at the London Olympics and we look forward to watching their progress!

Speaking of refreshing; we have refreshed our bags, to a shiny, recyclable BOPP version. While keeping your feed fresher, they are very striking and hard to miss, so keep an eye out for the green and gold, as you will see them coming into your feed store.

To all our Vuma clients, we wish you the most successful and rewarding year ahead, knowing that Vuma will be there when it matters most.
