We are delighted to welcome ‘Nastergal’ back home to the farm today.

One of our more uniquely named daughters, ‘Nastergal’ is the Afrikaans translation for nightshade – and by being out of a mare called ‘Royal Noir’ the connection is quite canny.

Her career highlight is without doubt winning the Grade 3 Champagne Stakes and Kenilworth, and having won three of her fifteen attempts, with an extra seven finishes in the places, equates to her placing in the money in over two thirds of her races.

The fact she raced most of her career on the soft ground only enhances her doggedness to never give up – an attribute we excitedly welcome to our broodmare band.

Being by Duke Of Marmalade, she’s a mare with plenty of scope, and possesses tons of class and substance. She managed to consistently be in tip top condition for all her races, and arriving home so happy and healthy is testament to Candice Bass-Robinson and her team.

It goes without saying that we are extremely excited about her new career as a broodmare!
