OverviewEdit

Juddmonte Farms consists of a variety of individual farms: four in England, two in Ireland, and two in Kentucky, United States.[3] Established in 1977, Juddmonte in particular is highly regarded for their 200 plus broodmare band.[citation needed] The farm has owned five horses named Broodmare of the Year in the U.S. or Britain:[4] Slightly Dangerous, dam of stakes winners Commander in Chief, Warning, Yashmak, Dushyantor and Jibe; Hasili, dam of stakes winners Dansili, Banks Hill, Intercontinental, Heat Haze, Cacique and Champs Elysees; Toussaud, dam of stakes winners Empire Maker, Chester House, Honest Lady, Chiselling and Decarchy; Arrive, dam of Visit and Promising Lead; Binche, dam of Byword and Proviso; and Concentric, dam of Enable.

The farm's first major victory was in 1980 when Known Fact won the 2,000 Guineas, the first win in that 200-year-old event for any Arab racing owner.[2]

In Europe, Juddmonte currently stands at stud the stallions Bated Breath, Expert Eye, Frankel, Kingman and Oasis Dream. In the United States, Juddmonte's stallion is Mizzen Mast, after the death of the prominent Arrogate at age 7.[5]

A number of homebreds have won major races in both in Flat and National Hunt racing after leaving Juddmonte. These include Wicklow Brave, son of Beat Hollow (Vincent O'Brien County Hurdle, The Punchestown Champion Hurdle and Irish St Leger); Prohibit, son of Oasis Dream (King's Stand Stakes); Brian Boru, son of broodmare Eva Luna (Racing Post Trophy and British St Leger); Powerscourt, son of broodmare Rainbow Lake (Tattersalls Gold Cup and Arlington Millions); Foreteller, son of Dansili (Australian Ranvet Stakes, Makybe Diva Stakes and Underwood Stakes) and Harlem, son of Champs Elysees (Australian Cup).[6]

Trainers and jockeysEdit

UK/US
France
The racing colors of Juddmonte are registered in the name of Khalid Abdullah, and there are two designs, one with a sash, used in the U.S. and the UK and the other with only epaulets, used in France.

Juddmonte's regular trainers in Britain include Roger Charlton, Charlie Hills, John Gosden, Amanda Perrett and Michael Stoute. In 2016, Ralph Beckett and Hugo Palmer became trainers for Juddmonte in Britain following the death of Sir Henry Cecil and the retirement of his wife, Lady Jane Cecil, after a brief but successful career. In 2006, Dermot Weld became a trainer for Juddmonte in Ireland, and Ger Lyons became a Juddmonte trainer in 2018. In France horses are sent to Pascal Bary, André Fabre, Henri-François Devin and David Smaga. Successful horses on the European scene were often sent late in their three-year-old career to Robert J. Frankel in the U.S. for the bigger purse Grade 1 races. In the 1980s Juddmonte also enjoyed success with Guy Harwood (father of Amanda Perrett) and Jeremy Tree in Britain and with Maurice Zilber in France.

In France former French National Hunt Champion Jockey Vincent Cheminaud is currently retained by Juddmonte. In Britain, Pat Eddery, Richard Hughes and James Doyle have been retained to ride Juddmonte horses in the past. In Ireland, Pat Smullen regularly rode Juddmonte horses.

The Juddmonte Group's CEO is Douglas Erskine Crum. The studs in England are managed by Simon Mockridge, in Ireland by Barry Mahon and in Kentucky by Garrett O'Rourke. Teddy Grimthorpe is employed as Juddmonte's racing manager in Europe, while Garrett O'Rourke is employed as Juddmonte's racing manager in the U.S.[15]

In the United States, Juddmonte horses—including Classic winner Empire Maker, Aptitude, Flute, Heat Haze, First Defence, Ventura, Sightseek, Intercontinental and former European racers such as Beat Hollow and Champs Elysees were trained by Robert Frankel for more than two decades prior to Frankel's death in November, 2009. They are now being trained by Bill Mott, Brad Cox, Bob Baffert and also by former assistant to Robert Frankel, Chad Brown
