IMBONGI TAKES ON THE WORLD WHILE PIERRE JOURDAN AND FISANI

TAKE ON THE CREAM OF SOUTH AFRICA.

It’s official now. Imbongi runs the $2 million Dubai Duty Free (Gr.1) at the Dubai World Cup meeting next Saturday, and in the process he takes on some of the best in the world. It’s a big weekend for us, as our Triple Crown aspirants Pierre Jourdan and Fisani, will be re-engaging the might of the three-year-old crop in Johannesburg, for R2 million and R1 million respectively in the Colts and Fillies Classics on the same day. They will be joined in their endeavours by fellow Summerhill graduates Smanjemanje,HavashaandNyakatho, in what can be some of the defining moments in any farm’s history.

There are only two horses left in the country with a chance of becoming Triple Crown winners this year, and they are Pierre Jourdan and Fisani. You can bet your life there’ll be at least a thousand souls on this property praying for deliverance!
