It has been a while since we have put pen to paper, we have had a few challenging times since February but are all back to normal and good health after our car accident. Thank you to everyone for their support and kindness shown to us over this difficult and frustrating time.
We have had a very exciting season. One dreams of a big Group 1 victory and a gelding bred here at Sandown Stud managed to land two for us this past season. What a star French Navy is and what an absolute privilege it is to be involved in such an exciting specimen.
French Navy came home like a really good horse in the Gr 1 SA Classic giving us our first Gr1 bred winner! Then to top what had already been the most awesome feeling a month earlier, French Navy came from the back of the field in the G1 Daily News to land a sensational win! He has amassed over R3million in earnings and has been a great buy at R100 000. Well done to Chris Van Niekerk for his patience and to Sean Tarry for getting him to this level.
