Highclere Thoroughbred Racing’s annual yearling parade at Highclere Stud. spread over two days was a huge success this year with all the syndicates being sold by the end of the two day event. Each day kicked off with coffee and bacon rolls for all guests followed by the yearling parade itself where Harry Herbert, Jake and Carolyn all explained why they had bought each individual yearling and the work involved in getting them into such peak condition. The parade was then followed by an unbelievably spoiling lunch to thank all HTR members for their continued support.
