Highclere Stud covers 300 acres of undulating grassland, ideally located on the edge of the Hampshire Downs in a sheltered valley. Established for over a Century, the success that has derived over the years can be attributed to the outstanding grazing and top class management.
Carolyn Warren has managed the welfare of the horses at Highclere Stud for the last 20 years. Under her and John Warren’s development the stud has enjoyed enormous success and has maintained its exceptionally high quality at both the sales and on the racecourse.
A wealth of experience behind them, they are widely regarded as being truly professional at placing the right horse in the right sale. With an excellent team preparing the yearlings and foals to the highest standards, the Highclere draft pride itself on faultless turnout and efficiency at the sales to show the horses at their very best.
Highclere Stud is home to the multiple Group 1 winning stallion Paco Boy. Now in his second year at stud, the Paco Boy has been used by most of Europe’s top breeders and with the wonderful results of his first foals, has a very high chance of being one of the leading first season sires in 2014.
The Highclere mares are by Group 1 broodmare sires such as Danehill, Kingmambo, Sadler’s Wells, Montjeu, Pivotal, Indian Ridge, Halo, Irish River, Machiavellian, Dancing Brave, Rainbow Quest, Seeking The Gold, Linamix, Cadeaux Genereux and Selkirk. The stud has 7 daughters of Group 1 winners as well as one of the very few mares by Dubai Millennium.
