On 28th June we will be granted exclusive access to one of the most successful stud farms in Europe, Cheveley Park Stud.
During the Discover Cheveley Park Stud Tour, the first part of your day will be spent visiting the legendary Newmarket Gallops, followed by a tour of the Jockey Club Rooms and then a delicious lunch at the Bedford Lodge’s 2AA Rosette Squires Restaurant.
After lunch you will be taken on a guided tour of the renowned Cheveley Park Stud, seeing the facilities and enjoying a stallion parade.
Therefore we wanted to give you some background on the stud’s star stallions so you can see what they have achieved before you meet them in person!
