The KZN Breeders Golf Day took place on Tuesday at Royal Durban, which saw the racing equestrian community from owners, trainers, jockeys and breeders turning out to support the day under beautiful warm winter Durban weather, consisting of 26 four-ball teams in total.

A big congratulations to Kevin Shea who won the tournament overall – and being the first award-winning recipient of the magnificent Ben Jonsson Floating Trophy.

Ben Jonsson, who has been a stalwart of racing is one of three triplets – including Hugh Jonsson who bred iconic South African sire Jet Master. Ben’s father was a top golfer of his day, and was the Royal Durban Golf Champion at the age of 50 years – the year he conceived his triplet sons!
