DRAKENSTEIN STUD FARM AT A GLANCE

About

Drakenstein Stud Farm comprises of 130 hectares of land situated on the lower slopes of the L’Ormarins Wine Estate. In 1688 Jean Roi, a Huguenot from Lourmarin, Provence, fled France and settled in the Franschhoek Valley where his name was soon changed to JannieRooi.

In 1694 he was granted this land by the Govenor of the Cape, Maurtis Pacques de Chevonnes. From the outset it proved to be a bountiful and blessed farm. Today it is the home of Drakenstein Stud Farm.

OUR FACILITIES

PRE-TRAINING DIVISION

Yearlings that are not destined for the sales are brought back to Drakenstein Stud Farm and pre-trained by Jason May 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 runs up the hill to the foot of the Groot Drakenstein Mountain Range.
