Ross Fuller has been appointed the new stud manager at Main Chance Farms in South Africa, the stud announced on Wednesday. The Sporting Post first reported the new appointment.

Previously a team member at prestigious farms Wilgerbosdrift, Drakenstein and Ridgemont, Fuller returns to South Africa after stints in Australia and England.

“While our horses are the proud flagships of our brand, we pride ourselves on quality and professionalism of the highest order and our people are an integral factor in our success,” Maine Chance's Dr. Andreas Jacobs told the publication. “We thus have great pleasure in welcoming Ross Fuller, a leader in his profession, and a man who will be well known to many in the South African breeding fraternity.

“Ross Fuller has demonstrated that he shares our ethics and a love of the thoroughbred racehorse. He will be part of a dynamic team that includes passionate horsewomen in Hundra Prins and Danni Kuttel, horsemen Tom Quata and Jackson Nkomphela, and a loyal staff complement that we are justly proud of.”

The operation has been champion breeder in South Africa multiple times, and is the breeder of record of reigning Equus Horse of the Year Princess Calla (SAf) (Flower Alley), who is making a Breeders' Cup bid later this year.

Fuller added, “After spending a number of years abroad, I look forward to the opportunity of returning and working with an industry leader in Maine Chance.”
