Danika Stud

In 1990, Nicky & Basil Bartlett opened the doors to Danika Stud which is situated in the picturesque Sardinia Bay, on the outskirts of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Danika Stud is home to 21 top class Mares and the Stud has produced notable winners such as Lady Brompton, who has seven wins to her credit including The Spring Challenge (Grade 1), The Emperors Club Stakes (Grade 2) and The Jacaranda Handicap (Grade 3).

The Stud has also produced stars such as Kings Gambit, who has produced 2 Grade 1 wins (The South African Derby & the South African Classic) and was awarded ‘Champion Stayer in 2008’. He is currently racing in England with 1 win and 2 second place finishes to his credit.

In 2004, Nicky & Basil took the bold step to import foreign bloodstock from the Agakahn Stud in Southern France, which saw the arrival of Zanakiya on South African shores. Her foal, Zanzamar, already a 2x Winner & placed twice in a Grade 1 in 2010 is currently in training with Mike De Kock and departs for Dubai in 2011.
