As a companion to its Global Stallions app and stallion books, Weatherbys has launched a new website, nhstallions.co.uk, which is devoted solely to National Hunt sires.
Listing around 100 jump stallions in Britain, Ireland and France, the site will be updated regularly with leading progeny and statistics.
“The launch of this new site is great news and I'm sure it will become the go-to resource for National Hunt breeders looking for regularly updated information dedicated to jumps breeding,” said Simon Sweeting of Overbury Stud, home to National Hunt sires Schiaparelli (Ger), Jack Hobbs (GB) and Frontiersman (GB).
His Irish counterpart John Flood of Boardsmill Stud added, “National Hunt breeders have been starved of good data and statistics for too long compared to Flat breeders. It's fantastic for them to have access to such important information.”
