We support the Retraining Of Racehorses and keep track of the horses we have bred where possible. At Abacus Bloodstock we provide care and re-education, and will always help owners of Abacus Bloodstock bred horses to find long term homes for them.
Mullionmileanhour x Fangfoss Girls - 2012
Pancake was the first racehorse we bred and was a sign of things to come when he hit the racecourse. He won 5 times in the UK with numerous places, starting with a win as a 2 year old, and then winning every year he raced until his retirement. He was a firm favourite with punters as he was generally in the frame - particularly at his favourite track, Southwell. He was sold by us and raced all over the UK before being sold to Germany,where he won in Belgium and was placed several times. He was not gelded until he was 4, and then simply because it was easier with the fillies, rather than his temperament. Upon his retirement in 2018, he was returned to us and remains a favourite with staff and visitors. He enjoys hacking out and has taken to showjumping with the same mix of joy and passion he showed as a racehorse.
ROLL ON RORY
Mullionmileanhour x Fangfoss Girls - 2013
A full brother to Pancake Day, Rory is the most successful son of Fangfoss Girls to date - and the best performing son of his sire. Like his brother he won in every year he raced, including as a 2 year old. His 2 year old career included a second place in a hot Doncaster maiden, followed by an emphatic win at Carlisle which earned him a ticket to Royal Ascot. Rory later raced over a mile, winning at both Newmarket tracks. Unlike his brother, he hated the all-weather! He was placed numerous times and retired in 2019. He is now eventing and showing in North Yorkshire - and loving every minute.
Motivator x Frazzled - 2009
Bought as a yearling from the Tattersalls February sale entirely on the strength of her pedigree Little Mo was a typical Motivator type - with a loving but sometimes challenging personaility, she never forgave me when, as a 2yo, I told her in no uncertain terms to stand up for the farrier. From that day on, she would put her ears back every time she saw me, until I fussed her and apologised yet again! She sadly suffered a string of injuries as a youngster, culminating in a rotational fall in her final prep gallop before a debut run, and never made it to the track. As a broodmare she fulfilled our expectations by providing beautiful looking foals which have gone on to perform well on the racecourse - including winning 1st foal Tin Fandango. She now has 4 runners in training but we sadly lost her in 2018 with a recurrence of the injury resulting from her earlier gallop accident. She was a fine mare and we still miss her - but her youngsters remind us every day of just how she has passed her beauty onto them.
