Linda Norval has just accounted for the bookings to our stallions for the forthcoming season, and as against the corresponding date last year, we’re some 25% ahead on numbers. There is an obvious recognition among breeders of the role the Summerhill sires played in Summerhill’s third consecutive Championship, and they’re obviously wanting to tie their boats up to the quay, in the hope that they too can catch the rising tide.
“There is a tide in the affairs of man, which taken at the flood leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, and we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures”
