The 11 stallions on Arrowfield’s 2012 roster, headed by champion sires Redoute’s Choice and Flying Spur and this season’s leading 3rd season sire Snitzel , will be available for inspection during six sessions over four days, Thursday 23-Sunday 26 August. No appointments will be needed for visitors who will be personally hosted by Arrowfield staff as the stallions are paraded.
