CAMDEBOO YEARLING DIVISION
All the weanlings are taken to wide open spaces of the Camdeboo Farm just outside Graff-Reinet. The wide eyed weanlings are greeted by Kudu and loud barks from the Baboons in the morning. We believe the dry tough conditions make for a better racehorse. David Hampton and his team run the farm off which our sales yearlings are prepped.
Our yearlings not destined for the sales are brought back to Drakenstein Stud Farm and pre-trained by Malan Du Toit and our skilled pre-training staff. The yearlings are taught to be racehorses while living out in the paddocks. We use our specially designed pre-training track which widen up the hill to the foot of the Groot Drakenstein Mountain Range.
Drakenstein Stud Farm is developing a state of the art Boarding facility, Mike Reid and his team manage our permanent and temporary residents throughout the season. Visit our Boarding farm section to read about our rates.
Our yearlings destined for sales are prepared by Dave Hampton and our sales division. To find out more about Drakenstein Sales visit our sales section
