JUSTIN Vermaak and Bernard Fayd’Herbe’s website, www.greenstreetbloodstock.co.za has been upgraded with a functional new look, to accommodate Green Street Bloodstock’s rapid recent progression and with a view to future growth.
Established in 2014, GSB’s innovative race horse syndication in South Africa through the Green Street Bloodstock Syndicate, allows all passionate racing enthusiasts a chance to experience the thrill of racehorse ownership and to be part of the elite racing club that is Green Street Racing – without breaking the bank!
Justin Vermaak and patrons, full marks for enthusiasm alone!
Besides management of the syndicate horses, GSB also takes on private owners to manage. Justin has a very good eye for a horse, he has grown in stature and experience though his position of Racing Manager at Maine Chance Farm and has built up relationships with captains of the industry as well as offering established and new patrons an opportunity to invest via shares in raced and unraced thoroughbreds.
Bernard, who has worked with horses his entire life, indeed with some of the best in SA racing history, assists Justin at the various sales so that only the best choices are made within available budgets. They attend all South African thoroughbred sales and will be visiting most barns at the forthcoming CTS Select Yearling Sale at Emperors Palace.
With their own prominence and popularity among racegoers, the GSB team also appeals to a younger crowd, exactly what the industry in South Africa and indeed the world needs to flourish and survive.
The website’s Horses For Sale section is updated with the latest information as to sales purchases, including shares available in various individuals. Presently, for example, there are shares available in the Ladies Syndicate’s unraced yearling Oriah, a well-related filly by Noordhoek Flyer in training with Dean Kannemeyer’s KZN stable.
Available now are shares in two recent yearling purchases – a smashing King’s Apostle colt from a three-parts sister to Captain America and a stunning filly by sire sensation Querari, whose offspring are now sold at double their recent prices.
Also on the new website is “Justin’s Blog”, in which he jots down the many interesting experiences of his life in racing, the first two columns having dealt with his trip to the recent Dubai World Cup.
With Justin’s handicapping experience and Bernard’s ability to work with a horse, they also form a formidable partnership when it comes to picking winners. The GSB Tipping Service consistently finds high-priced winners and they often recommend value permutations around these “roughie” selections. Recent outsiders given to clients include Julia Dolittle (16-1), Winter Soldier (16-1) and Alaca (14-1); as well as a Pick 6 that paid out R15,000 on 19 March.
Green Street Bloodstock embodies a youthful and fresh new approach to racing and involvement in racing and their new website is well worth a visit. Go to www.greenstreetbloodstock.co.za
