Highclere Thoroughbred Racing’s yearly parade of the magnificent yearlings up for syndication with Harry Herbert and his team was a huge success. The yearlings that have been bought by John & Jake Warren over the recent sales period were shown to perfection by our team in front of a big crowd of current and potential owners who then enjoyed a delicious lunch with champagne flowing.
Harry Herbert and John Warren explain the rigorous process involved in finding and purchasing these particular yearlings.
