Nicks & Breeding Recommendations

A.P. Arrow by A.P. Indy

You can be Right, you can be Wrong. But you can never be Certain.

In a land where millionaires are revered for what they are, A.P. ARROW earned $1,5million in a racing career noted for its class, its courage and its durability. A tall, athletic horse, his lustre is enhanced by his superb bloodlines, coming as he does from the daughter of the greatest broodmare in American history, MR. PROSPECTOR, and being a half brother to another millionaire.

We expect A.P. ARROW to bring class and an ability to accelerate when the chips are down, and his own brand of athleticism to the mating table.

Our panel of experts are able to provide a formal mating recommendation for all of Summerhill's resident stallions, embracing an evaluation of the physical compatibility of your mare with the stallion of your choice, an appraisal of relevant elements such as soundness, durability, speed, stamina, athleticism, temperament and courage a record of duplicated ancestors (and where applicable the reasons for duplicating) and the prospective matings aptitude profile.

Should you wish to avail yourself of this comprehensive service, please contact us.
