Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Yearling Parade

Highclere Castle aka Downton abbey
One of my customers is very well known on the English Horse Racing scene running syndicates under the prestigious Highclere Thoroughbred Racing brand, Highclere Castle being his childhood home. These days you may Highclere Castle as the setting for the fictional Downton Abbey television series.
Ready for the yearling parade
 Every year there is a yearling parade at the Castle stud where invited participants get to see the years new horses and syndicates. This is a great way to get involved in the sport of kings by getting to own a share in a racehorse. This makes going to the Races even more enjoyable.
Highclere Racing Yard
Every year after exhaustive selection the new yearlings are paraded in front of prospective shareholders of the various syndicates. For myself, I have been invited to go along to view the spectacle and have a glass or two of Champagne with everybody in the Castle afterwards. If you fancy owning a share of a racehorse and becoming part of the sport of Kings yourself click this link:

Thankyou Iona so much for your comment. Such history gives the old buildings a certain warmth. I only wish they could talk, what stories they could tell.
