Avontuur Thoroughbred Stud farm is excited to have welcomed top performer A Daughter’s Legacy, the recent winner of the Gr 3 Final Fling Stakes over 1800m to the Somerset West Estate!
Says GM Pippa Mickleburgh; “We’ve been interested in her for about 6 months now and after that swansong win last weekend, it’s wonderful to see her settling into her new paddock in this beautiful environment along the slopes of the Helderberg. She has an impeccable pedigree and the heart of a lion and we are planning to have her visit VAR soon.”
A top broodmare prospect for Avontuur Stud.
The D Cohen & Sons bred Windrush bay leaves racing with a very proud record of eight wins from thirty starts for R700 000 in prize money, which makes her R90 000 price tag look very sweet. She was trained by Riaan van Reenen.
A Daughter’s Legacy will now form part of Avontuur’s renowned band of brood mares like Minelli, Sarabande and others, who have added so much to the success of this operation from the time the farm was bought by the Taberer family in the early 80’s.
“This purchase is part of our commitment to the future of racing in South Africa and we look forward to her settling in and then contributing further to this exciting sport,” Pippa said.
