The popular TBA Flat Stallion Parade which took place at Tattersalls on Thursday 1st February, gave breeders the opportunity to view eleven stallions from studs around the country at one venue. The stallions, who are all embarking on their first and second season at stud in Great Britain, were paraded through a packed sales ring, with commentary from television and radio presenter, Gina Harding and Tattersalls’ Matt Prior.
Parading stallions included newcomers Ardad, Mattmu, Peace Envoy and Time Test. In addition, several stallions who have their first foals on the ground this spring also took part, including Adaay, Cannock Chase, Marcel, Pearl Secret and Proconsul. The parade was completed by two new international recruits, Gr2 Japanese performer Danon Ballade and Spill the Beans, a Gr2 winning son of Snitzel.
Following the parade, breeders were invited to see stallions in the Left and Right Yards, where 3 additional stallions; Cable Bay, Coach House and Hellvelyn were also available to view. Stud representatives were on-hand to discuss mating enquiries for the forthcoming season and the TBA provided complimentary food and drink in the hospitality boxes in both yards.
The TBA would like to thank all who supported the parade, with special recognition to the stallion handlers and the stud farms, Tattersalls, Weatherbys, Gina Harding and Matt Prior.
