"Will you be where it's all at?"

The place to be for the next five days is the Mother City!

Cape Town is always full of exciting things to do but never more so than the next five days as the inaugural Cape Premier Yearling Sale gets underway at the International Convention Centre near the Waterfront. Wednesday 26th January is the first viewing day at the sales ground, with the sale itself kicking off on Thursday 27th at 4pm, until 9pm and continuing at the same times the following day.

Saturday sees the 129th running of the R2,5 Million J&B Met Grade 1 which promises to be a cracker, with the stalwart Pocket Power in his swansong appearance, against, among the field, his three stable mates as well as a strong hand from Mike de Kock, including Mother Russia, winner of the recent L'Ormarins Queen's Plate.

This new sale is bound to be very interesting with a strong catalogue, well represented by most of the top Cape Studs and a sprinkling from KZN. With the massive international interest in our SA bred horses, generated by the performances abroad of the likes of J J the Jet Plane, River Jetez, Jay Peg, Imbongi and Zanzamar, we can look forward to more than a few bids from international buyers!

Added to the reputation of our South African horses is the sheer value that they offer when compared to the purchase prices of yearlings bought at sales across the globe. Training costs are also less than elsewhere and no one really needs an excuse to visit our magnificent country!

We wish all of our Vuma clients  well and look forward to their continued successes! The Vuma team will be there in support, proudly South African and proud to feed your Champions!

SOUTH AFRICAN EQUINE GLOBE TROTTERS

...the all thrive on Africa's Finest Horsefeeds.

We may be Africa's Finest Horsefeeds but our effects are far reaching and some of our best ambassadors travel the world to conquer and excel abroad, and many do return for a taste of the good stuff back on home soil.

One of these travellers is Sue Cullen's warmblood stallion, Wenzel R, who is due home in December after his time in quarantine. Sue is adamant that Wenzel will eat nothing but Vuma and we would have to agree that apart from being a magnificent horse he does have great taste. Wenzel will be continuing his dressage career here in South Africa, after a year competing in Europe.

Among our racing champions whose foundations were built on Vuma are Desert Links, Paris Perfect and Imbongi, all whom started life at Summerhill Stud and all who went on to fly the South African flag high in Dubai. While we may tell you that nutrition is key to the foundation of a successful racing career, it is the stats that will tell you that graduates of the Summerhill pastures are hardy and run more often for more stakes. This key differentiator is what has kept Summerhill at the head of the pack on the breeder's log for the past 6 consecutive seasons.

Currently still in the UK is Paul Hart's, Heartbreak Hill, who was prepared in South Africa for his International campaign on Vuma Vitality and who we look forward to feeding again on his return sometime next year. Paul tells us that since the horses had to return from the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, via the UK, they are planning on competing at Badminton which falls over the Easter weekend in 2011.

Vuma Champion, JJ The Jet Plane won both the Golden Horse Casino Sprint and the Mercury Sprint earlier this year and is currently in quarantine near Newmarket, in the UK before he jets off to Hong Kong, where he will run in the in the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sprint on December 12th. In his case he is taking his supply of Vuma Feed with him to ensure a seamless move across the globe and to ensure his best chance of success.

Wherever in the world they may go, our Vuma Champions have one thing in common; they all thrive on Africa's Finest Horsefeeds.
