His Majesty King Letsie III and Nelson Mandela
“Many, many more happy birthdays.”

Today marks the birthday of His Majesty King Letsie III of Lesotho, just a day before the celebrations of the birthday of South Africa’s own icon, Nelson Mandela. It is our tradition at Summerhill to fly six Summerhill flags on the flag poles outside the Stallion barn, as a celebration of a Graded Stakes victory, and right now our flags are clapping hands for OUTCOME’S big effort in the Garden Province Group One.

However, tomorrow, they will be replaced by six flags of the Republic of South Africa in acknowledgement of “Madiba’s” 90th birthday.

The entire Summerhill, Hartford House, Vuma and Goss & Co teams join me in wishing our two national celebrities many, many more happy birthdays.
