Avontuur's Oratorio celebrates another international Gr1 winner

Avontuur’s new stallion Oratorio continues to reel in the international Group winners. His son Biz The Nurse broke a 27 year old drought for 3 year olds to win the Gr 1 Gran Premio di Milano in Italy.

Trained by the man who is dominating Italian racing at the moment, Stefano Botti, this achievement was particularly special as this is one race he has never managed to win.

Oratorio arrived in South Africa from Australia in January this year after being acquired in a scoop from Coolmore.

The son of Danehill has set the world alight in Europe in the past four months. With this win Oratorio now boasts a total of  6 international Gr 1 winners.

Avontuur General Manager Pippa Mickleburgh said that Oratorio’s international performances were music to the ears of all involved with him and said that she believed that the best was yet to come. He stands alongside the sensational Var in one of the most powerful stallion arsenals anywhere in Africa.

Oratorio stands for a fee of R80 000 at Avontuur Estate in the Western Cape.
