Nothing happens...but first a dream.
Riverton Stud - Highest Strike Rate of Stakes Winners in SA
"The goal of any breeding operation must surely be to produce stakes horses, and for that reason one has to make special mention of Riverton Stud who had the highest strike rate of stakes winners this past season (excluding farms with only a few runners) with 18% stakes winners/runner. Riverton Stud has produced the winner of the G1 Tsogo Sun Medallion three out of the last four years (Captain of All, Link Man and Potent Power). Quite an amazing achievement for a relatively small operation and well done to Duncan Barry and the team down there!"
A few other farms with notable stakes winning percentages are Avontuur (15%), Highlands (13%), Varsfontein (12%), Lammerskraal (12%), Backworth Stud (14%), Daytona (15%), Ascot (14%), Cheveley Stud (12%), Milkwood (16%) and Ambiance Stud (12%)."
Highlights: South African Racing Review 2013
Our yearlings are carefully selected in terms of maturity and pedigree for the major sales in South Africa.
Our philosophy is to allow nature to dictate maturity without artificial interference which we believe is detrimental to the athlete.
