Navigation: Lanwades and St. Simon | Staffordstown
Horses have been bred in Newmarket and the surrounding villages since the reign of Queen Anne.
LANWADES has achieved a remarkable 95%+ average fertility for each of the past 27 breeding seasons. There is a permanent staff of some 25 people, the figure rising to 30 during the season. The Stud Manager at Lanwades/St Simon is Alastair Watson.
Students of bloodstock management and veterinary medicine from all over the world have trained at Lanwades: former trainees are now managing some of the top stud farms in Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A., France, Germany, Japan and Poland.
Lanwades and St Simon are adjacent to one another with 155 boxes, together with 8 isolation yards, which are run as completely separate units. They cover over 567 acres.
James Crowhurst MRCVS, our vet, is based in Newmarket and makes daily visits to the studs.
