Smart debut winner for Var

7th Feb 2018

Avontuur Thoroughbred Farm’s leading sire Var has been enjoying his customary good run of success these last few weeks.
The former sprint champion, responsible for the unbeaten 2yo filly Val-La-Ree, had another eye catching debut winner at the Vaal on Tuesday.


This time it was Var’s three-year-old daughter Mademoiselle, who overcame physical odds to reach the racetrack, who scored.
Mademoiselle, trained by Johan Janse Van Vuuren –who also handles Var’s top class granddaughter She’s A Giver,  produced a devastating turn of foot to make a winning debut over 1000m. It was a good race for Var, with another daughter, Esstoora, running a close up third.

Out of the Grey Eminence mare Fragrance, Mademoiselle powered home under jockey Weichong Marwing to win first-time out by one and a half lengths.

Her sire Var, South Africa’s Champion Sire of Two-Year-Olds last season, has some very smart sophomores representing him this season.
Var three-year-olds in 2017-2018 include the very impressive Talk Of The Town, G1 Gold Medallion runner up Varallo, G2 Golden Horseshoe hero Purple Diamond and speedy filly Casual Diamond.
