When BALLINGTON (Braashee/Verdigris) chalked up Win Number 10 last weekend he became the “most winning horse of his generation” in the country. Not a bad feat for an 8 year old. What makes it even more interesting is the fact that others on this elite list also carry the Summerhill stamp: BRIGADIER PARKER (Braashee/Camp Jewel) [14 wins], RED CARPET STYLE (Fard/Eton Fields) [11 wins], NHLAVINI (National Emblem/Valley Mist) [15 wins] and VOYAGE ON FRANCE (Braashee/Paris to Dakar) [9 wins].

And to think that some have been heard to say that we don’t breed them tough in KZN …
