Established in 1948, Whitsbury Manor Stud has a long-established tradition. Whitsbury Manor Stud is situated in a beautiful location with over 750 acres of secure post and rail paddocks situated on the chalk of the Hampshire Downs. A host of successful stallions have been housed at the stud including Ballymoss, Compton Place, Distant Relative, Young Generation, and Cadeaux Genereux.
Showcasing, one of the most exciting stallions standing in Britain today, now stands at the stud and heads the roster. In addition, we will see the stud’s most recent new stallion Havana Grey, a Group 1 winning sprinter as well as Adaay, a dual Group 2 winning son of Kodiac, and Due Diligence, a son of War Front. In addition to viewing a parade of the four stallions, we hope to see a number of brood mares and foals.
Please note that there is a maximum of 30 members.

Roger Teal is predominantly a flat trainer, based in one of the historic yards in the centre of Lambourn. Members may recall that the WBRC last visited Roger in 2016, when he was based in Great Shefford, near Lambourn. Currently, his highest profile horse in training is Oxted, who won the 2020 July Cup and 2021 King’s Stand.
Sue Teal, Roger’s wife, is his chief organiser and will arrange for cars to park in the field opposite the stables. However, if the weather is inclement making the field unusable, smaller cars will have to park in the side streets of Lambourn and walk back. There will be some parking in the yard for those who really need to be close by. Please allow extra time to accommodate these arrangements and share cars if at all possible.
The plan is to tour the yard including the equine swimming pool and take a trip to see second lot on the gallops.
Afterwards, optional brunch has been booked at The Pheasant Inn, Ermin St, Shefford Woodlands, Hungerford RG17 7AA.
