Premie: Star 2nd Premie

Rita passed away in early 2016 from colic and it was a great loss for the stud.

Rita became only the second ever South African bred preferent mare in February 2015 when two of her offspring became star at the 2015 Inspections.  Gordon van Doorndraai Rb (S: Glenn ‘Sport’) became Star as well as Juliette van Doorndraai Bb1 Stb Star which was a fantastic result for the stud.  Gordon also achieved 77 for his ridden IBOP test which means Rita now has 5 Star offspring (Destinie van Doorndraai, Mieke van Doorndraai, Anneke van Doorndraai, Gordon van Doorndraai and Juliette van Doorndraai)
