Syd and Shirley Rosseau of St Helier Stud are enjoying a purple patch with recent wins across the country, and the current nhra.co.za stats tell the story impressively.

A small stud that retains only quality and Black Type mares, St Helier Stud are currently boasting 50% winners to runners from 18 runners – incredibly they have won 16 times for a boastful average earnings of over R72 000 each, with 39 places in the bag and over R1,3-million earned.

A very impressive colt as a yearling, the handsome chestnut What A Winter gelding Winter Storm was part of a hat trick for Paul Peter recently, whilst the impressing Miesque Sunrise ran second on the weekend at Greyville under the care of Wayne Badenhorst for Syd and Shirley as owners and breeders, and Fives Wild won for Kom Naidoo.

Winter Storm has won three times and placed five – only out of the money on two occasions for trainerĀ Paul Peter.

Their mares stand at St Helier Stud on a beautiful property on the outskirts of Hillcrest. Congratulations to Syd and Shirley Rosseau!
