Hear The Drums – the winning most race horse in South African History – has retired from racing and has returned to his birth place, Summerhill Stud. He earned over a Million rand in stakes, having 65 Starts, 35 of them wins and 19 places; he deserves a happy and effortless retirement.
“When we start weaning later this month, Hear The Drums will accompany the likes of Senor Santa, Amphitheatre and Redcarpetstyle – fellow legends of the turf looking after or as it’s known on the farm “baby sitting” the up and coming champions”, writes Tarryn Liebenberg, the Pre-Training Manager.
Many thanks to Peter & Gail Fabricius and trainer, Des McLachlan. It is a great honour for a Summerhill bred & raised, to return to the farm and live out the rest of his days in green pastures.
