Cape Breeders Club, in conjunction with Highlands, is proud to announce that they will be holding the Stallion Evening & Service Auction on 23rd May 2012 at Highlands. This is a golden opportunity to bid in one of those “hard to get” services that never seem to be available. It is not often that you get such a group of stallions converging to one place to allow people to view them. They look truly majestic under the spotlights. There will also be an opportunity to see video footage of the new stallions that are coming in this season as they themselves will be in transit at the time.
Before dinner there will be the auction of the stallion services. These services are very kindly donated to the Club by the stallion owners to raise funds for the following year. This coming year we will be supporting the African Horsesickness Trust with their “blanket vaccinations” in the Cape and grooms training along with the other benefits to the breeders such as G1 Goldmine Stallion Match (which can be found on the eligible stallions on our website), the grooms transport back from the National Yearling Sales & National 2 Year Old Sales and certain publications. The funds are also used for the functions that the Cape Breeders Club has, primarily the Stallion Evening. The Club relies solely on the magnanimity of the stallion owners and without them the Club would not be able to do what it does.
Highlands is a wonderful venue and Kim and her team provide magnificent event with all the “creature comforts” that makes it such a memorable evening where no detail is spared – down to having a safe kiddie’s area.
