Summerhill Stud Dispersal Sale

A notable chapter in South Africa racing history closed with the recent sale of Summerhill Stud. At the end of 2019, the Mooi River-based farm was sold to Capital Stud’s Henning Pretorius and thus saw the end of a notable era.

The farm is set to offer its entire band of broodmares for sale, with Summerhill’s broodmare band including the dams of such notable G1 winners as Rabada and Takingthepeace, as well as daughters of such breed shaping stallions as Galileo, Giant’s Causeway and Kingmambo.

One of the most beautiful stud-farms in South Africa, Summerhill Stud has a lengthy and rich history and was in the family of Mick Goss for many years prior to the recent sale.
