IT'S VODACOM DURBAN JULY TIME!

Vodacom Durban July 2012

Vodacom Durban July
7 July 2012

"Winter Fever – it's contagious!"

With the Vodacom Duban July less than a week away, all eyes turn to Greyville in Durban.

The usual July fever has everyone abuzz and the gallops, while showcasing each horse, gave very little away in terms of who is certain to win on the day.

Vuma-bred stalwart Pierre Jourdan lines up for the Gary Alexander yard, in the main event again, after just being defeated by champion filly Igugu last year, while the Brett Crawford-trained three-year-old Dynasty colt, Jackson, looks to be most people's starting favourite. Of the fillies, the diminutive grey Ilha Bela and strong stayer Gorogonsa line up for the Mike de Kock / Mary Slack Trainer / Owner combination and, as we know, they are always a force to be reckoned with.

Vuma-powered trainer, Sean Tarry, has three runners in Pomodoro, Gold Onyx and Whiteline Fever, all good colts who should be strong contenders on the day.

2003 July winner, Dynasty has two other representatives in the race, apart from Jackson. These include the Colin Scott-trained Sage Throne and the filly Beach Beauty for Dennis Drier.

All 20 runners are great horses and of course the Vuma team does have certain favourites but we will be there to shout them all safely home on the day!

VIGOUR, VITALITY, VUMA

vigour, vitality, vuma

Vodacom Durban July Day
2010

Historic production constraints mean we only feed one in ten South African racehorses. Yet,on Vodacom Durban July day, we were there again with two Group One winners and another Group Two winner. At the expense of some flashy numbers the bookmakers thought were home-and-hosed.

As we've always said, when the chips are down and the big questions are being asked, Vuma won't let you down. Just ask the Champion Breeders, who took home the spoils for the sixth consecutive year, the same weekend.

Vodacom Durban July
31 July 2010

July Day 2010 was undoubtedly the pinnacle of an incredible season for Champion trainer Mike de Kock and we salute him and his team on this fifth trainer's title.

Hot on his heels though, is hot-shot trainer Sean Tarry with a total of 137 winners and R13,907 million in stakes. He finished his season in top style on July day with back to back Grade 1 wins in the Thekwini stakes, with diminutive filly Happy Archer and the Premier's Champion Stakes with the imported Black Minnaloushe colt, Gold Onyx.

Sean is a dedicated and talented trainer and will not be resting on these laurels for very long as the new season gets underway. You can be sure that Vuma will be there supporting him and the team at every finish!

Also on July day, trainer Michael de Beer celebrated a Grade 3 win with Saluki in the Schweppes 2200 and Glen Kotzen's Imperious Star ran second in the Grade 1 Garden Province Stakes.

Congratulations to all the connections from the Vuma team - we love to feed your champions!
