The KZN Breeders Club’s newest stallion addition’s half-brother Sandringham Summit added to Eden Roc’s already impressive pedigree to win the same race his VAR brother clinched in 2019.
Back then the Durban Golden Horseshoe was a Gr1 contest.
Sandringham Summit defeated feature winner Gimmeanotherchance in the process, as well as Guy Gibson who has placed twice behind the talented Lucky Lad.
A R1,7-million yearling by Gimmethegreenlight, Sandringham Summit has now won twice and placed second twice from four starts for trainer David Niewenhuizen and owner Mr Rakesh Singh and doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon based on his form and good looks.
Clifton Stud, who stand Eden Roc on behalf of the KZN Breeders Club, will be hosting a stallion day on 12 July to introduce him publicly to breeders.
Eden Roc was purchased through the incentive of the Stallion Premiums from the KZN Breeders Premium Scheme, the first of its kind in South Africa.
The son of VAR has an enviable race record and pedigree; out of Captain Al mare Townsend, a Gr2 winner who has produced 5 winners to date, this is also the family of Zapatillas.
Eden Roc is a coup for the KZN Breeding ranks, and the very handsome athlete raced consistently and soundly until age 6.
