Welcome Hannah Henney, our new Stud Manager

We are delighted that Hannah Henney has joined Ladyswood Stud as Stud Manager. She comes with a CV rich with industry experience at the very top level and we’re hugely privileged to have her working alongside Stud Consultant Jamie Trotter and the rest of the team.  She'll be assisted by Katie Salvage as the stud works towards presenting its draft at the Tattersalls foal sales in November.

There remains a final opening which would ideally suit a couple, again to work alongside Hannah & team - accommodation & full package included. Please contact us on Info@ladyswoodstud.com for further details.


Ladyswood Stud is sending a very strong draft of foals to the Tattersalls December Sales for the first time, including an attractive and beautifully bred colt from the first crop of Golden Horn out of Group 3 winner Damaniyat Girl, an Iffraaj colt out of a Bernadini sister to Damaniyat Girl and an Exceed And Excel colt out of a Medaglia D’Oro daughter of Damaniyat Girl. Completing the draft are a colt by the highly sought after Shamardal, and a filly by rising star Siyouni.

Spring Fling wins at Ayr!

SPRING FLING - having been twice placed 4th at pattern race level, Spring Fling won the Land O’Burns (listed) at Ayr on Saturday. She’s now likely to have one more run in the Coral Charge (G3) at Sundown on Eclipse Day before retiring to Ladyswood. 


The Listed Land O’Burns Stakes, the feature race of the day at Ayr yesterday, was won by the Henry Candy-trained Spring Fling. The six-year-old daughter of Assertive took cover in the main body of the field as Merry Banter (Bated Breath) took off in front at a fast pace. The winner struggled to find racing room, but when she did a furlong from home, she quickened well to win by a length and a quarter from Rural Celebration (Pastoral Pursuits), with Queen Kindly (Frankel) a further neck behind in third.

This was Spring Fling’s first victory at Stakes level and her third win from 18 starts, during a career which has lasted five seasons.

Bred by Caroline Wilson, the Goffs UK graduate is a half-sister to the Gr.1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes and Gr.1 Haydock Sprint Cup winner and young sire Twilight Son (Kyllachy) and the Gr.3 Hackwood Stakes and Gr.1 Sprint Cup-placed Music Master (Piccolo).

New Owner for Ladyswood Stud

As featured in TDN: Thoroughbred Daily News

Ladyswood Stud in Wiltshire has been purchased by Alex and Olivia Frost, who plan to develop a band of up to 20 broodmares on the 90-acre farm.

“We are incredibly excited about Ladyswood,” said Alex Frost, a longstanding owner, predominantly with Henry Candy, whose colours have been carried to success by the likes of G3 Acomb S. winner Treaty Of Paris (Ire) (Haatef) and Signor Peltro (GB) (Bertolini).

“It’s a huge project and incredibly daunting but we hope to make it into a stud that proves to be a happy family home as well as a well as a highly respected breeding operation.”

Initially, the stud will be home to ten of the couple’s mares, with foals expected this year by Golden Horn (GB), Shamardal, Iffraaj (GB) and Exceed And Excel (Aus). While Ladyswood will be focused on breeding horses for the Flat, the Frosts also have a keen interest in National Hunt racing and breeding, and own Dalamine (Fr) (Sillery), the dam of treble Grade 1-winning steeplechaser Don Poli (Ire) (Poliglote {GB}) in partnership with Harry and Lorna Fowler. The 17-year-old mare, who has a 3-year-old filly by Beat Hollow (GB) and a Kayf Tara (GB) yearling among those still to race, lives at the Fowlers’ Rahinston Stud in Ireland.

Ladyswood Stud was previously owned by trainer Martyn Meade, who bought Snailwell Stud just outside Newmarket last April. Situated in Malmesbury, close to the border of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, the farm boasts woodchip and sand gallops along with the regular stud facilities.

Frost added, “We have two large barns and 23 boxes, along with offices and staff accommodation in two cottages. We have all the facilities we could wish for and are now looking for an outstanding stud groom to complete the team.”
