Prominent in the early political histories of the old Colony of Natal, the Summerhill and Hartford Studs have been producing world class racehorses since the 1930s, sending out the winners of every major race on the South African Racing Calendar. It is appropriate then that, as neighbouring properties, they should be represented today under the single banner of Summerhill Stud. With their stately residences and the old chapel built by two Prime Ministers, these properties are national treasures.
