Hello and welcome along to our blog & news site. We hope you will keep up to date with all our developments at Abacus Bloodstock, as well as enjoy our take on the world of horse racing, breeding and life in general – although when you have horses that kind of IS your life!
2017 so far
The year has started with continued work on the farm. We moved into Lower Linbrook Farm in December 2015 and have been developing it into a top stud facility since. At least the horses are used to tractors and diggers – so the yearlings have gone off to their training fairly bomb proof at least.
New additions include a new 4 stable block to accommodate the mares and foals once they are moved out of the foaling boxes. We have also invested in stud fencing and re-fenced and ditched the hedge borders around the property, as well as installed improved drainage. Next phase will be a walker and all-weather area for backing and sales preparation – all work and meantime lots of moving piles of mud from one place to another.
In the last few months we have sent yearlings (now 2 year olds) to new owners with trainers including Kevin Frost and Mark Usher. One of them is the half sister to our two
most prolific produce Pancake Day and Roll on Rory. Very exciting times! Good luck to all connections and thanks for choosing Abacus Bloodstock.
We have also had lots of demand for our 2016 foals and all but one has been purchased already. They are currently growing well in their new homes – including the first and only colt foal for Ritchie Fiddes’ stallion Albaasil and a stunning colt by Mawatheeq who will go to Iain Jardine in 2018.
Foals due soon
We have 4 foals due this year – all in March – and these are really exciting prospects. Sires include new boy Telescope, Irish super stallion Fast Company (now with Darley), Mazameer and UAE record holder Cityscape.
Of course we will keep you up to date with developments.
