Fresh warm air breezing in from the Chesapeake Bay. Acres of spacious paddocks with green, green grass to roam in after work is done.

  • Tattersalls UK November Sale - The Ubiquitous Green Desert

    The first day of the Tattersalls December Foal Sale had no special fireworks, though three of the top lots were from the first crops of sires El Kabeir, Territories and Night of Thunder, all of which sold in the 60-65,000 guineas range.
