FORMER Champion race mare, River Jetez, has foaled down with her first, a flashy colt by Var.

After a brilliant local and international career that included places in the Gr1 Beverly D (Chicago), the Gr1 SIA Cup (Singapore) and the Dubai Duty Free, she was retired to Avontuur Stud to join a band of top broodmares at the Somerset-West establishment.
Avontuur’s Pippa Mickleburghb commented: “River Jetez is a great mom and her first foal is a good size. We’ll probably send her to Oratorio next.”
