We were awarded these trophies for Grade One wins by Captain's Gal in the SA Fillies Sprint, and by Mother Russia in the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate

On the eve of the National Yearling Sales, the TBA held its annual awards ceremony, during which trophies were awarded to the breeders of the previous 12 months’ Grade One winners.

During his opening address, TBA Chairman Altus Joubert drew attention to the statistical probabilities of breeding Grade One winners. In the case of a stud the size of Normandy, that would be about one Grade One winner every eight years!

We have been very fortunate to collect these awards (in some years for more than one horse) for the past three years, as well as in 2005, so we have comfortably outperformed the average.
