It’s well known that Summerhill is the most visited stud farm on the continent. Of the order of 70 to 80 people (including those who fix our plumbing, our lights etc.), sign in at our gates on a daily basis, which amounts to somewhere between 30,000 and 35,000 visitors a year.
Among this week’s celebrities enjoying the fruits of South Africa’s top restaurant, Hartford House, were past Orlando Pirates coach, Mike Makaab (he steered them to several championships) and well-known television presenter, Julie Alexander.
Mike is, of course, a member of the team that recently bought Pierre Jourdan, one of the fancied entries for this weekends’ Champions Cup (Gr1).
