The Thoroughbred Breeders' Association NH Stallion Showcase will see 18 stallions parade on the first day of the Goffs UK January Sale later this month. 

The stallions, many of whom are among those registered for the 2022 TBA Elite NH Mares’ Scheme, will be shown in Yard B at the Goffs UK sales complex on Tuesday, January 25. The parade will allow mare owners the opportunity to view stallions ahead of the breeding season.

TBA National Hunt Committee chairman Bryan Mayoh said: "There's an increasingly exciting selection of British-based stallions available to National Hunt breeders and this showcase provides an ideal opportunity for breeders to review the stallions at their leisure ahead of the breeding season and to talk to stallion owners about their choices.

“The event will also play host to the TBA’s Silent Auction of National Hunt nominations, which provides valuable funds towards the association's National Hunt activities over the year.”

Among the new recruits to the British National Hunt stallion ranks are 2019 St Leger hero Logician, a son of Frankel who stands at Shade Oak Stud, Bangkok, a Group-winning son of Australia who resides at Chapel Stud, and Leading Light and Walzertakt, both of whom have progeny of racing age. They stand at Dunraven and Chapel Stud respectively. 

The event will also showcase stallions who arrived in Britain ahead of last year's breeding season. Spanish Classic winner Dink, the sire of the high-class chaser Nube Negra, will be shown by the Skelton family's Alne Park Stud, while LM Stallions will show Diplomat, by Teofilo and a Group 2 winner and over jumps.

Another significant sire is Arrigo, a Group 2-winning Shirocco half-brother to Adlerflug who stands at Yorton Farm Stud. 

Established sires on show include Planteur, Chapel Stud's Group 1-winning son of Danehill Dancer and sire of last year's champion stayer Trueshan, Peel Hall Stud’s Frammassone, a Grade 1-winning hurdler in Italy and sire of Cheltenham winner Lively Citizen, and Dragon Dancer, a Derby runner-up who stands at Nunstainton Stud and is sire of multiple winner Goodbye Dancer.

Gentlewave, sire of Easysland, as well as last season’s Grade 1-placed novice hurdler Gentlemansgame, Group 2 winner Masterstroke, sire of Grade 3 winner Floridee and Grade 1-placed Hades, and Coronation Cup scorer Pether’s Moon, sire of the Listed-placed hurdler Anneloralas, will also be brought by Yorton Stud.

Telescope, a dual Group 2-winning son of Galileo, has had his first crop turn five and will join Logician alongside the third Shade Oak stallion, Dartmouth, a two-time Group 2-winning son of Dubawi whose first crop have just turned three.

Overbury Stud's Jack Hobbs, the winner of the Irish Derby for John Gosden and last season's busiest British-based National Hunt sire, will join studmate Frontiersman, who is impeccably bred, being a son of Dubawi and the great Ouija Board.

The line-up is completed by the National Stud's Flag Of Honour, a son of Galileo whose career highlight came when winning the Irish St Leger.

A nomination to the stallions nominated to the 2022 TBA Elite NH Mares’ Scheme and those in attendance at the Stallion Showcase have been made available by their respective owners for the TBA’s Silent Auction of Nominations. The funds will go towards the TBA’s National Hunt activities.
