Recently retired Dartmouth, Jack Hobbs, Mahsoob and Peace Envoy join the line-up for the 2018 TBA NH Stallion Showcase which takes place on Wednesday 24 January at Goffs UK. The four new stallions add to the growing list of National Hunt sires available in Britain, offering breeders more options for their mares in the forthcoming 2018 covering season.
A total of 17 stallions will be available to view at the event which features as part of the second day of Goffs UK January Sale. The full list of attending stallions includes: Blue Bresil, Cannock Chase, Clovis Du Berlais, Dartmouth, Dragon Dancer, Dunaden, Jack Hobbs, Mahsoob, Native Ruler, Passing Glance, Peace Envoy, Pether’s Moon, Proconsul, Scorpion, Sun Central, Telescope and Universal.
The TBA NH Showcase is free to attend and will run throughout the day in Barn A. Light refreshments will be served in the hospitality box where attendees can meet with stallion managers and TBA representatives.
TBA NH Committee Chairman, Robert Waley-Cohen said: “We are delighted to have secured 17 stallions for the second NH Showcase at Goffs UK. It’s particularly pleasing to see that TBA NH initiatives designed to support domestic breeders are beginning to bear fruit, with more high quality stallion prospects like Dartmouth and Jack Hobbs being retained for stud careers in Britain.
“The NH Showcase invites breeders, owners, trainers and enthusiasts to take the opportunity to view the wide range of stallions ahead of the covering season. We are, as ever, very thankful to the stallion managers and Goffs UK for their continuing support.”
