Val De Ra

Equus Champion Sprinter of 2011 Val De Ra has arrived safely in Newmarket to begin her new life as a broodmare.

She started her quarantine in Cape Town in May 2012 then spent 3 months in Mauritius under the expert care of Mike De Kock’s team of Steven Jell and Trevor Brown, who Avontuur owe a great of thanks to for getting her to Europe in fine fettle.

She has settled in quickly with Walter Crowe at Arran House Stud.  Avontuur’s immediate plans are for her to visit current leading European Sire Oasis Dream this season and then stay in the UK for a few years visiting the top stallions of the world-hopefully the export protocol will ease and they can bring her weanlings back to SA to sell but another option is to sell in Australia as they really understand the speed influence her yearlings will offer.
