Summerhill-breds are among the runners in all of the six Graded Stakes events on July Day, and we’ll bring you details of these tomorrow. There are at least three others with big shouts in the Grade Ones, while our boys will be making their presence felt in the Gold Vase (Gr.2) as well.

Meanwhile, Linda Norval reports unprecedented bookings for the Summerhill Stallion Day on Sunday 8th July. They’ll be there from across the length and breadth of the world, and we’re in for a helluva day, it seems.

Booking’s essential, so please ring Linda (+27 (33) 263 1081) in good time if you’re keen. We’d not want to disappoint you, but we simply can’t accommodate more than 500 seated.
