Kommetjie – A ‘Ding’ For Charity

Small breeder extends a novel helping hand

A small breeder has an idea to create a measure of positivity in an industry desperate to keep the momentum of the good news of Kommetdieding’s Vodacom Durban July victory going.

“I have a 2 year old filly in pre-training at a stud in KZN. My idea would be to get some sponsors – my wife’s company will be the first – to assist with costs during her racing career. Any stakes will be donated to a Covid Orphans fund or orphanage,” says Mike Kelly.

Kommetjie – charity champion!

In a nutshell, Mike will donate Judpot daughter Kommetjie’s racing career.

She will race in the colours of a designated orphanage.

His wife’s company, and any other organisation or person that they sign up, will carry the training costs .

Any income received during her career will go to a nominated orphanage to assist Covid orphans.

Mike says he will be looking for a trainer – hopefully one likely to achieve maximum racing success- to come on board.

“The filly I have in mind is Kommetjie – close to the much loved Vodacom Durban July winner – certainly in name!”

Kommetjie is a Varsfontein Stud-bred daughter of Judpot out of the four-time winning Choisir mare, Goldie Coast.

Here is her pedigree – for interest
