If ever there was a moment in the farm’s history that is capable of altering the mainstream of events, it’s the arrival of a new stallion. Today could be epochal for us, as two of the most significant prospects set foot in their new paddocks for the first time. An awful lot has already been said about A P Arrow and Admire Main, so we’ll let the team do the talking, free of the influence of the boss, who’s hooked up in Mauritius – poor fellow!

Comments from the yard:

A P Arrow is one of the best looking horses ever to come to Summerhill”.

Stallion Manager, Greig Muir

Admire Main is wonderfully natured son of Sunday Silence, a pleasure to have in the barn”.

Stallion Manager, Greig Muir

“They are both really imposing horses – and the fact that they are both virtually free of Northern Dancer blood, and therefore ideal outcrosses, must make them even more appealing to breeders.”

Claire Curry, Mating Consultant, Juddmonte Farm, UK

“The A Team has landed!”

Heather Morkel, Business Manager

“Not one, but two, really exciting horses each with good looks and loads of presence. Lots to look forward to.”

Marlene Breed, Personal Assistant

“Both gorgeous horses, and they will do us hugely proud, fantastic to have them”.

Linda Norval, Stallion Admin Manager.

“Two very good looking stallions, I really think they will suit a lot of South African mares”.

Annet Becker, Broodmare Manager.

“Two well-bred, athletic horses with good action – if their foals look like them, we’ll be over the moon.”

Tarryn Liebenberg, Pre-training and Sales Manager.

“Two outstanding horses”.
