The annual Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association stallion parade took place at Tattersalls on Thursday with a host of first- and second-season sires on show before the first session of the February Sale.

Among the stallions on show were Whitsbury Manor Stud’s new recruit Adaay, Group 2 winner Eagle Top and Pearl Secret, who stands at Bucklands Farm and Stud.

Second season sires featured included Shade Oak Stud’s dual-purpose sire Group 2 scorer Telescope, Overbury Stud resident Mustajeeb, whose first foal was born on Wednesday, and Hellvelyn, who is the sire of the unbeaten Mrs Danvers.

Peter Hockenhull of Shade Oak Stud said: “It’s great for people to see young stallions at an event they're already going to go to, so it makes sense to bring them here. Judging by the number of people who’ve been up here it’s been well worthwhile coming.”
