Chasemore Farm held an Open Morning for local residents yesterday with over 80 visitors passing through the gates to see behind the scenes of a working thoroughbred stud. The morning included a guided walk of the farm, children’s games and the opportunity to get up close to mares and foals. Thank you to everyone who attended - we hope you enjoyed your day!

ARTHUR KITT (Camelot x Ceiling Kitty) travelled to Louisville, Kentucky last week to race in the 2018 Breeders’ Cup World Championships held at Churchill Downs.

Arthur will now have some time off at Chasemore Farm before returning to Manor House Stables for his three year old campaign.
It was a very special day for all the team at Chasemore Farm on Saturday as ARTHUR KITT (Camelot x Ceiling Kitty) held on to win the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot.

“We loved the mare, and ever since her colt came into the yard we’ve loved him” commented trainer Tom Dascombe after the win. “It’s great for the team at home and you would hope he’d go on to better things”.

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."
