This company concentrates on breeding horses for National Hunt (NH) racing, whose popularity is centred around the UK, France and Ireland. This sport has its own following and is driven by the desire of owners to have runners in the top events and at festival meetings, such as Aintree, Punchestown and, of course, Cheltenham.
The drop in the foal population and an expanded fixture list have also led to increased demand and very strong results at the major ‘store’ sales in UK, France and Ireland in 2014. The prices fetched by good quality NH horses far exceeds their ‘commercial’ value – it is unlikely many horses will recover in prize money the amount their owners are willing to pay for them.
The company seeks to acquire high class NH mares to produce stock to meet this market demand. The intention is to breed stock that is closely related to proven performers on the racetrack and sell the offspring either as foals or as two or three year olds.
The company currently has a focus on the French market, reflecting the appeal of the French-bred to the UK and Irish markets in the light of the success of the likes of Kauto Star and others in recent years.
