The Cape Breeders Club NPC was incorporated in 2001. Its aims and objectives were to assist the Thoroughbred Breeders in the Cape in all matters pertaining to the industry. In recent years the focus has been in education and the Club instigated the Grooms Training Program which is used as a bench mark for the qualification for eligibility for entry into the Co-ops. The Club is funded by the generous donations of services by the Stallion Owners/Managers which are auctioned annually.  Read the Tribute to the Horse
