Vodacom Durban July (Grade 1)
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!

kzn breeders awards

KZN Racing Awards
(Vuma Horsefeeds) 


There hasn't been an awards ceremony in the past decade where we've played truant. You name it, Vuma's been right there among the silverware, alongside our customers.

At the KZN Racing Awards, it was no different, except this time it was a vote for the future. Both the Juvenile Champions know the taste of Africa's finest. And for the umpteenth time, the Breeder of the Year owes its ongoing success to its affiliations with us.

As we've said before, when the chips are down, we'll be right alongside.

"South Africa's trailblazer in Horse Nutrition"

On a daily basis Summerhill Stud is receiving now, enquiries from around the world, prompted no doubt by the stream of pamphlets, brochures etc which fill your mailboxes with stallion propaganda at this time of year, as to when the Summerhill Sires Brochure will be on the street. It seems it has become coffee table material and archive stuff for many, but as always, it will be out at the beginning of August, and those attending the Summmerhill Stallion Day will be the first recipients.

Following is an insert from the brochure; a piece on Vuma Horsefeeds :

"When we first invested in the horsefeeds business twenty years ago, we made a solemn promise. For as long as it was within our means, our horses would be the best fed in the world.

That we've been true to that promise is plain from the record. A small country mill, hundreds of kilometres from racing’s action, has sustained the yards of seven of the last ten Champion Trainers. In a lifetime, you’d have to say you’d settle for that, but that’s only half the story.

Feeding racehorses is a process. At Vuma it starts long before the foal is born; in its perfect manifestation, it should go on to the grave. Any horse that's known the taste of Vuma, would feel deprived by anything less.

Ask the Champion Breeders. The lads in Mooi River will tell you that Vuma has been central to their six consecutive Equus Awards as the nations' Number One stud farm. The statistics tell us that their horses are healthier, that they run more often, for longer, and that when it comes to big race victories, there are no equals.

Our toughest competition will tell you that Vuma has been South Africa’s trailblazer in horse nutrition. That the loyalties it inspires are unbendable. And that as a brand, it is the envy of the industry.

Another promise we made, was that we would never entrust Vuma’s manufature to anyone else. Unless they make it better than us. That the custodianship of the brand would never be placed in the hands of anyone who did not share our values.

Technology has moved on since we made our first bag of Vuma in a concrete mixer in 1990. Our competitors have worked tirelessly in closing the gap. In the end, in the best interests of the best range of horsefeeds in the world, we’ve handed the torch to the people who’ve earned it. Who’ve worked hardest to compete, and who’ve made the investment to take Vuma to where it’s never been before.

And rest assured : they’ve made the same promises."
