Racing Post Bloodstock feature on Chasemore Farm 2018 Mating Plans

Racing Post Bloodstock, 29th January 2018

"Since setting up his breeding operation at Chasemore Farm in Surrey just over ten years ago, Betfair founder Andrew Black has moved towards a more commercial approach from some fairly unconventional stallion selections and means of acquiring mares in the early days.

He was rewarded for doing so at last year's foal sales when the farm's draft, consigned to Tattersalls by the National Stud, included a Le Havre colt out of a sister to Australian Group 2 winner Permit sold to Shadwell for 140,000gns and a Lope De Vega colt from the family of Dream Ahead knocked down to JC Bloodstock for 90,000gns."
