The fabulous broodmare Catherine's Well produced nine times winner William's Well who flew the flag for
the yard in the early 2000s, notably winning the Great St Wilfrid Handicap
at Ripon. Half brothers Emperor's Well and Elvington Boy were also multiple winners for Catherine's Well.
Bow Peep was another successful broodmare, and her daughter, the home bred Listed winner Bow Bridge won the Marygate Stakes at York in 2005 and was placed in the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes. Bow Bridge herself went on to be a successful dam providing the yard with a number of winners, including Bowson Fred, Towbee and Black Annis Bower. Other home bred horses to win for the yard have been Middlethorpe, Property Zone, Kings Square and Babouska (all bred by Alan Black) and Acomb and Happy Times (MW Easterby). Alustar has been another successful broodmare, with Black Grass and Alluring Star among her winning offspring.
We have also been to the winner's enclosure with multiple scorer and Listed winner Perfect Pasture and his half sister Perfect Peak, who are both offspring of the winning sprinter Word Perfect, and with Strong Man whose dam Strong Hand was a winner for the Easterby yard. In 2016 Hoofalong, whose dam Baymist was a winner for our yard, won the William Hill Scottish Sprint Cup at Musselburgh.
Aside from the mares, stood stallions over the years at the nearby Norton Grove Stud. Who could forget Winter Derby winner Gentleman's Deal, who sired a number of winners at the yard, including multiple winner We'll Deal Again whose dam, Emma Amour, also raced for the yard. Gentleman's Deal was also the sire of multiple winners Alluring Star, Fame Again and Strong Man.
Our bloodstock operation continues to this day and every year, from February and March the paddocks are occupied by mares and foals as they grow to become the winners of season to come.
Have a look at some of the foals at the yard here.
