This evening, Providence hosts the annual KZN Breeders Awards at a function that was sold out well in advance. Summerhill’s usual contingent of more than thirty staff members has had to be cut to just eleven representatives, because of the demand for places. As Champion Breeders of South Africa for the third consecutive year, it follows that we have a liberal sprinkling of finalists including:

OUTSTANDING TWO YEAR OLD FILLY

The farm itself has to be a major contender for Breeder of the Year.
