KZN BREEDERS AWARDS

Bellwood Cottages

16 November 2013

KZN BREEDERS - The annual KZN Breeders Awards takes place once again at the beautiful venue Bellwood Cottages in the KZN Midlands, owned by breeders Willie and Janine Messenger who also happen to have their beautiful Kahal filly Enchanted Kingdom nominated for the event this year. The prestigious Awards evening will take place on Saturday 16 November, 6:00 for 6:30pm.

Once again, the nominees are of a high standard this year and include a number of Group winners and performers - including the first for sire Judpot with Backworth Stud’s (recipient of last year’s Breeding Achievement Award)Colour Of Courage who won the Grade 2 Umkhomazi Stakes, and Admiral’s Eye who place third in a Grade 1 on Vodacom Durban July day for Summerhill Stud’s young Japanese sire Admire Main. Owner Alesh Naidoo has two nominations under the Summerhill banner, with Love Struck and Admiral’s Eye.

KwaZulu-Natal has produced an outstanding crop of two-year-olds; Grade 2 winning Virgo’s Babe stole SA Fillies Nursery by five lengths (bred by Midlands Thoroughbreds) and Princess Julietta by King Of Kings has had two very close and impressive Group performing seconds (bred by Betty and Basil Linington). Julietta stands at Rathmor Stud and has foaled a Kahal, returning to Crusade this season.

Greg Royden-Turner’s Roski-bred Journeyman has been nominated in the Outstanding Two Year Old Colt category, and this young son of Trippi is in quarantine heading to Dubai under the care of champion trainer Mike de Kock. Jimmi Choo, a speedy chestnut colt bred by Cathy and Jonathan Martin of Hadlow Stud, also stands in this category along with Yellow Star’s talented son of Jay Peg, Flash Drive.

As nine time South African champion breeders, Summerhill Stud have a number of entries including Grade 1 SA Classic winner Love Struck and Grade 1 Daily News 2000 second placed No Worries (owned by Brian Burnard). Both are by Kahal.

Kahal who now stands at Bush Hill Stud also features prominently being a champion sire. He has some of the country’s top fillies and mares up for nomination - including the likes of Festival Of Fire (bred by Mr CJ Saunders and Lady O’Reilly), Eastern Greeting (bred by Kjell Foundation), Checcetti (bred by Summerhill) and Enchanted Kingdom (bred by Bellwood Stud).

Gitiano, winner of the KZN Breeders Million Mile this year, has been nominated for Outstanding Middle Distance Male and Outstanding Three Year Old Colt. Bred by Mr Emilio Baseiro, he is a son of Mullins Bay and his dam Poppy Elizabeth has returned to Mullins Bay this season, after foaling a Querari.

Requiem, a son of Danehill who stood for a time at Spring Valley Stud, is the sire of both Jo De Nys’ Rhythmic Roxy and Salutation, both mares up for nomination in the Outstanding Female Stayer category.

Scott Bros have had an outstanding year with their black son of Mogok, The Apache, who seems to be getting better with age. Their nominations include another two sons of Mogok - Meadow Magic who took home the Grade 2 Emerald Cup and Wild One in Outstanding Three Year Old Colt category. They also have the big talented son of Jet Master, E-Jet, nominated for Outstanding Older Male and Outstanding Middle Distance Male. His dam, a grey mare named Esmaltina, now stands at Yellow Star Stud and is owned by Mary Slack of Wilgerbosdrift. She will visit the speedy Kildonan this season.

Seal, the talented staying son of Silvano bred by Dr Ian Heyns born and raised at Bush Hill Stud, is also entered into the category of Outstanding Older Male and Male Stayer.
