Normandy Stud — More than four decades of winning

Fractional Ownership

September 24, 2018

When Margrethe came bolting home to break her maiden by 4.5 lengths in the first meeting of the new season, she was also the first winner under our new fractional ownership initiative. Richard Fourie was easing up her up before the line, and afterwards he couldn’t have been more effusive in his praise.

Fractional ownership makes racehorse ownership accessible to a wider group of people. By owning just a small share, the cost is divided into manageable amounts (this could be as little as a few hundred rand per month). However, as a part owner you still get 100% of the excitement and enjoyment. And, of course, you share in the horse’s earnings.

    There are a few important points to note with respect to our syndicates:

  • we retain up to 40% ownership ourselves, so our money is committed alongside yours
  • our trainers own shares too, so they also have ‘skin in the game’
  • we include the racing careers of fillies at no cost, which is massive added value
  • depending upon the horses, the initial purchase price of the colts could be well below production cost

Our first syndicate of 2018 two-year-olds comprises four colts and two fillies. There is 60% available, at a total cost of R160 000 (that’s R10 000 per 3.75% or 10% for R26 667, or 1% for R2667).

As far as monthly costs are concerned, each 1% of shareholding will cost approximately R700 (so, a 10% shareholding will cost R7000 per month). However, there is a likelihood of some stake earnings in the first 6 to 12 months, and it’s possible that stake earnings could cover monthly costs in the second year.

The 2018 line-up

Flatware f. (Wylie Hall – Family Silver) share of racing career only
By exciting young sire Wylie Hall, out of a Silvano half-sister to champion filly Tatler. This is a strong, workmanlike filly, and her dam has produced two winners from three runners. It’s the family of Grade I-winning fillies In Camera, Just Sensual, Consensual and Give Me Five.

Milonga f. (Mambo in Seattle – Tango Queen) share of racing career only
This strong, rangy filly is by the sire of Same Jurisdiction. The family has been in the stud since the mid-80s, and is responsible for the Cape Derby winner Grande Jete, as well as the top filly Joshua’s Princess. She is almost certain to stay 2400m.

Anderson c. (Philanthropist – Centre Court)
This athletic colt is out of a mare that has a 100% record. Every one of her foals has run, and every one is a winner, including two stakes horses. It’s a family we have owned since the early 80s, and it’s produced a lot of speedy horses for us.

Tango with Tigers c. (Pathfork – Dance with Tigers)
This smart-looking colt is a full brother to the multiple winner Grizabell. The family has been in the stud since the mid-80s, and is responsible for the Cape Derby winner Grande Jete, as well as the top filly Joshua’s Princess.

Sentebale c. (Philanthropist – Royal Jubilee)
Named after Prince Harry’s charitable foundation, this colt is the first foal of a Trippi mare from a family of solid stayers. His grandam, Colonial Girl, won the Gold Cup. She has produced five winners from seven runners including the stakes-winner Peggy Jay. Her last foal, Sailor Girl, is showing very promising staying form.

Fundraiser c. (Philanthropist – Genteel Approach)
This high quality colt is out of a half-sister to hard-knocking Dubai campaigner Star Empire, as well as the graded stakes-winner Fabiani. Like Philanthropist’s top Hong Kong runner Singapore Sling, this colt is out of a Mr Prospector line mare.

Grade I Honours for Sergeant Hardy

May 7, 2018

The Cape Flying Championship is one of just three weight-for-age sprint races on the South African programme. Given that one of them is on the Highveld, it severely limits the opportunities for sprinters at the top of the merit ratings.
On Sun Met day 2018, Sergeant Hardy held off a field of top sprinters to gain […]

A Real Crowd Pleaser

July 7, 2017

Of the six two-year-olds we consigned to the CTS Ready To Run sale in 2015, two became graded stakes-winners on the same afternoon, when Sergeant Hardy and Nordic Breeze won their respective nurseries. Also in that line-up of two-year-olds was a colt we liked a lot.
Going by the name of Crowd Pleaser (a riff on […]

Ready to Run, really

September 30, 2016

For buyers, we think that Ready to Run sales are a no-brainer. Excluding the factor of the vendor having carried the cost of the additional months of keep, as well as two months of pre-training, buyers can see how the horses move at pace. Yes, many athletic individuals are good walkers, but there’s always an […]

A Nursery Double

July 6, 2016

28 May 2016 is a date we won’t easily forget.
We were understandably excited when Nordic Breeze won the Grade III Kenilworth Fillies Nursery. She had opened her account by becoming the first two-year-old of the season to win in open company, which she did on debut. She encountered traffic problems at her next start, […]

Sergeant Hardy leads the charge

February 9, 2016

We had just two yearlings on the 2015 Cape Premier Sale. They were both good looking Captain Al colts, so we felt fairly confident of a reasonable outcome. However, nothing is certain at auction sales, and this one ended up being a huge disappointment. The first colt didn’t sell. Elation at the R450 000 achieved […]

Taking on the South-Easter

February 11, 2014

Cap Alright took his win tally to nine, with a second win in the South Easter Stakes. This was his 50th start; in addition to his nine wins he has also placed 26 times (and earned money several more times).
He’s a horse who knows only one way of getting from starting stalls to finishing post […]

A Bit of ‘Alright’

November 18, 2012

Cap Alright becomes the fifth graded stakes winner from different branches of the Terpsichore family, as he gets the better of close relative (and another Normandy-bred) Depardieu in the Grade II Betting World Merchants.
Terpsichore is the grandam of Champions Winter Solstice and Mother Russia, and the great grandam of Bravura, Depardieu and Cap Alright.
Given […]

Bravo Bravura!

November 29, 2011

Bravura’s first run with blinkers saw him home in one of the Cape’s most important trials, the Green Point Stakes (Gr II). He saw off the late challenge of Tales of Bravery, who ran second to Mother Russia in the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate when conceding 5 half-kilos.

Depardieu takes the Cape Classic

November 29, 2011

Depardieu’s first win as a three-year-old, in the Grade III Cape Classic, came at the expense of one of the generation’s leading males, Gimmethegreenlight. We were pleased to see him settle so well, and that burst of acceleration, well … we just keep watching the video!
