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.

Arrowfield’s Bloodstock Manager Jon Freyer says, “We want to make it as easy as possible for breeders and owners to inspect particular stallions at a time that suits them, in a relaxed, conversational setting. We’ve also scheduled two full parades to allow inspection of the entire roster within an hour or so on the Friday and Saturday mornings.”
