Just Vogue, a gutsy Just As Well filly who has earned her owners close to R500 000, won a brave race under Warren Kennedy at Scottsville for trainer Gavin Van Zyl.
Out of a Western Winter mare Voga Longa, she has also placed 14 times for owners Messrs R G Coppin & G Baldeo & Team G Racing (Nom: Mr G H van Zyl).
Sold for a mere R25 000 at the 2015 KZN Yearling Sale, she was bought back again at the February Shongweni Sale for R80 000 and rewarded her owners generously since then.
Just As Well maintains his excellent strike rate from small numbers, producing 17 winners this season including a Gr3 winner, with 61 places and over R1,6-million – from only 34 runners, each averaging R50 000 in earnings.
As a small breeding establishment, we are very proud of the recent statistics on the www.nhra.co.za website, which sees us producing over 55% winners for the season.
From 27 runners, we have had 20 wins and 57 places, and our horses have earned over R1,5-million for their connections over the past season.
Foaling season is around the corner and we are looking forward to another exciting crop this season from our band of mares that are doing us very proud at stud.
