Ackerman Invests In Future Of Gauteng racing

Pedigree is laden with class

In what can be best described as a vote of confidence in the future of Gauteng racing, a partnership led by prominent owner and businessman, Willem Ackerman, has purchased the talented and impeccably bred English sprinter, Mujbar. He will be trained by Mike de Kock.

A winner of the Gr3 Horris Hill stakes and Gr2 placed as a juvenile, Mujbar is an athletic and good-looking son of Oasis Dream’s successful sire son, Muhaarar, out of Madany, a stakes-winning daughter of Acclamation. Madany was runner-up in the GBP500 000 Newmarket Tattersalls Millions Sprint.

Mujbar’s pedigree is laden with class. He is a half-brother to the Gr1 Royal Ascot Sprint winner, Eqtidaar, and to Massaat, who was second in both the Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes and the Gr1 English 2000 Guineas.

Mujbar’s pedigree combines the two most prominent speed lines in Great Britain, and unlike many imports does not sacrifice either performance or pedigree due to exchange rate limitations.

Mujbar arrives in South Africa in mid-August and the immediate aim of the partnership is to prepare him for a tilt at the 2024 L’Ormarins King’s Plate.

No stud plans have yet been considered.
