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.

JJ THE JET PLANE TO JET HOME TO SOUTH AFRICA

JJ THE JET PLANE
"Fueled by VUMA"

Vuma champion JJ the Jet Plane will be returning to South Africa as soon as possible. In a letter received from Team JJ, Natalie Houdalakis writes : 

"Dear All,

It is with a very heavy heart that we have to make the following announcement.

JJ has unfortunately suffered an injury at track work in Dubai, whilst preparing for the Krisflyer International Sprint in May. He has suffered a core lesion of his medial lower suspensory of his near fore leg. Although not life threatening or permanently career ending, it is however serious enough to put an end to his International Campaign.

The entire JJ team, Lucky and owners, Hennie Du Preez, Coenie Strydom and Thea Boyens are all devastated with the news and are still in a state of disbelief. However, as you all know, racing can be a very cruel game and one learns to take the lows along with the highs. And our Champ has given us more highs than most experience in a lifetime!

We have decided that in the best interest of JJ's welfare, he is to return home to SA as soon as possible, where we can hopefully nurture him back to full health once again.

We would like to take this opportunity in thanking each and every one of you for your continued support of this marvellous race horse. He not only belongs to us but to all South African Racing fans and along the way, he has managed to capture the hearts of many fans abroad too.

Natalie"

Our condolences to all the connections on such a massive disappointment. JJ has certainly brought us all a lot of excitement and great memories and has helped to fly the SA flag high on the International Racing stage.

The Vuma team looks forward to welcoming our Champion home!
