As I drove to Bosman Hermanus yesterday I crossed the De Bos Dam on the Karwyderskraal Road and saw the turnoff to Oldlands Studs. An brief, yet undeniable twinge of joy filled my heart. Why? The scenery? Yes, that too. The relatively full dam and vineyards of Sumaridge, Bosman’s and Newton Johnson are all very visible in their lushness. BUT, the twinge was a feeling of pride for our latest Hermanus achiever – Ambiorix from Oldlands Stud. This two year old colt made a winning debut at Saturday’s Summer Juvenile Stakes at Kenilworth Racecourse.
