Stephen Collins, European Bloodstock Manager, reports: “We are thrilled with how both Baaeed and Minzaal have commenced their first books, with each horse consistently reporting in-foal mares on a daily basis.

Baaeed’s extraordinary achievements on the racecourse speak for themself and he has been supported by many of the world’s leading breeders with an excellent first book. Meanwhile, Minzaal has also been incredibly well-received and has proven tremendously popular with commercial breeders as he continues to cover a high-class first book of mares.

We would like to thank all our breeders for their support this season with all of our stallions, particularly our two extremely exciting new stallion prospects.”
