Our first Group 1 winner PROHIBIT goes for a hack…..

Prohibit winning at Royal Ascot 2011

Tears were bought to a few eyes this morning as eleven year old PROHIBIT was tacked up for the first time in two years and taken for a gentle hack around the stud. This amazing horse catapulted the yard into a different league when he became our first Group 1 winner back in 2011 winning the Kings Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot. Sadly due to a serious knee injury he was retired from racing and since then he has had a lengthy recuperation period here on the stud where he has been looked after by all our wonderful staff.  He behaved impeccably this morning despite the windy weather conditions seen in pictures below with our rider Alam on board.  This is such great news for this very special horse.  He will now make a great hack companion for Ghislaine and Kara Cowell and their pony Surf.
