The Stallions that are standing at Girsonfield all have excellent temperaments and very high fertility. The veterinary care provided is excellent - making sure your mare has the best possible chance of being in foal when she comes home.
Watch this horse, running in Ireland! Proclamation has settled well at Girsonfield and his first mares have gone home, safely in foal.
Both Bahri and Proclamation are off to a flying start with mares covered. First pregnancy scans due soon.
We have had a busy week with the first foal born on Saturday night. A filly by Bahri, all is well. We have also had a good start to the covering season with Bahri covering his first mares this week.
Article today about Girsonfield on Budget Breeding!
What would you want from a NH sire? CPG - 4 starts, 3 wins. He won his bumper by 17 lengths. Two hurdle wins including today at Lingfield in Class 2 company by 7 l. Now a Cheltenham entry in the JCB!
This picture of Proclamation in the Racing Post today? Snowed up.....got to improve soon!
Five mares came to Girsonfield last week from Newmarket. All booked to BAHRI. Two of theses mares have yearling colts by Bahri - the owner is obviously delighted!
We were delighted to take delivery of PROCLAMATION today. He enjoyed his walk up our lane and settled in nicely to his new world.
A very good start to PROCLAMATIONS move to Girsonfield. The Overbury born and bred CHRIS GREEN PEA was most impressive!
Congrats on getting Proclamation - we have a foal of his on the ground at present out of Los Organos (Spice Bird). Could you please confirm price for the covering as we may send another of our mares - he seems to throw really strong foals.
'Proclamation, who has stood for several years at
Overbury Stud in Gloucestershire, is to relocate to Susan
Corbett’s Girsonfield Stud at Otterburn in
Northumberland. The son of King’s Best, having won his
only start at two, was Timeform’s European Champion
Miler at three, coming from last to first in the Gr.3 Jersey
Stakes at Royal Ascot and then taking the Gr.1 Sussex
Stakes from four other Gr.1 winners. He comes from the
Aga Khan family of fellow leading miler and sire Sendawar
(Priolo) and at stud he has had a high proportion of horses
in the frame and this year has had Stakes performer
Annunciation to represent him.
Susan Corbett commented: “We have been building up
the quality of the stallions here at Girsonfield recently, with
Bahri having been a great success, and now with the topclass miler Proclamation. He is a near outcross and good
nick with Northern Dancer line mares and is a lovely
looking horse, with great bone and depth, which makes
him an ideal dual-purpose stallion. We look forward to having people to visit him soon.' - courtesy EBN 10th Nov.
From conception to the winning line! Dun to perfection finally looked like his name at Carlisle!
All welcome to our Open day, where we will be parading the three stallions BAHRI, MILLKOM and FERRULE. There will also be a chance to see youngsters by the Girsonfield stallions.
Lancelot by Bahri won a listed race in Leon yesterday 2400m - still producing winners at the highest level!
Many congratulations to our son Jamie and his beautiful new wife Jordan.
Great win with Harriet Grahams Scotswell by Endoli, wearing them all down at Cartmel.
Breeder Rupert Chennels from Newmarket had this to say about his Bahri Colts - 'They are superb - I cannot tell you how pleased I am with them. One built for speed and the other just looks a Classic horse! I will be sending my mares back to Bahri next year!'
Another Bahri winner from Classics to Hurdles!
The first pregnancy scans have been confirmed at Girsonfield for Bahri!
Three colts to Two fillies so far for Bahri! Covering has started and we have the first pregnancy scans next week!
We had our first two foals - a filly and a colt, born here on 21st January - the colt out of Amouretta and a three parts relation to the winning filly by Bahri - Granny McPhee. The filly is outstanding, very strong and is the first foal of Toarmandwithlove by Choisir.
We had a great start to the Year when Definite Appeal - a PTP horse bought for son Jamie - won a three mile chase at Musselburgh ridden very well by Jakub Kocman. Sam won the best turned out so it was a great day all round!
Due to a change of ownership we are now able to reduce the fee of Ferrule. He has a most fabulous pedigree including the great mare 'Al Bahatri'. See the stallion page for more details.

UNUSUAL DOUBLE FOR QUEEN
ELIZABETH II HERO BAHRI
Bahri, whose finest hour on the racecourse came on this day in 1995 when, under an inspired ride by Willie Carson, he landed the Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes, completed an unusual double yesterday. His three-year-old daughter Shareen won the Gr.3 Denny Cordell Lavarack & Lanwades Stud Fillies Stakes at Gowran Park, her first at Stakes level, while his five-year-old son Redford added to his win in the Ayr Gold Cup last Saturday, with victory in the valuable Totesport.com Challenge Cup at scot. Shareen, who is owned and bred by His Highness The Aga Khan, is a half-sister to the dual Listed-laced Sharleez (Marju), from the immediate family of the dual Derby winner and sire hahrastani (Nijinsky).
Redford, who is out of a half-sister to the Gr.3 Chester Vase winner High Baroque (High Estate), was bred by T J Rooney and is a Goffs and Tattersalls graduate. Former Derrinstown sire Bahri now stands at Girsonfield Stud in Northumberland.
The filly Shareen then follows Redford by winning a 52,000 Euro Group 3 at Gowran Park - a fairly average afternoon at Girsonfield!
After winning the Ayr Gold Cup Redford, son of Bahri, has today created an amazing double by winning the Tote Sport.com challenge cup at Ascot. That is a winning strike of £200,000 in 7 days!Go Bahri!!
It was with great sadness that this year saw the passing of Paul Brennan - a great client and friend of the stud. For many years he searched for the perfect sport horse and this could just be it! Out of the mare Annie V1 by Millkom this chap is sweeping the board with Championships at the shows he has been to so far. Best of luck to Sarah and her new star!
Pink Cat did everything her connections expected of her in her first race as a two year old. She should be out again soon and we watch her and Mobane Ali with interest.As you can see Girsonfield was definitely in on the act! Thanks to Mr Drowne for the posing!
I was lucky enough to visit Horses First Racing at the weekend and saw, first hand, what kind of filly Pink Cat (Ferrule x Barrosa)has grown into. Still as laid back in her stable but a muscle power house to look at - should get a run in two weeks her trainer, Jeremy Gask says.....
Mobane Ali - Ferrule x Penteli, trained by Jessica Harrington in Ireland, was the first ever runner for Ferrule. She ran a great race and was 6th of 13 - most of whom had ran before - we are looking forward to her next run!
Well done to the connections of LANCELOT ( FR ) son of Bahri and winner of the Prix Pelleas Listed race over 2000m in France yesterday - 26th July 2010
TO GIRSONFIELD STUD
Derrinstown Stud has announced that their European
Champion Miler, Bahri (Riverman), will be leased to stand
at Susan Corbett’s Girsonfield Stud in Northumberland next
Bahri won two Gr.1 races for his owner, Sheikh Hamdan
Al Maktoum, scoring impressively by six lengths in the
Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot and recording an equally
emphatic four length success in the St James’s Palace
Stakes at the same venue’s Royal meeting. He was also
Gr.1 placed on four other occasions, including in both the
English and Irish 2,000 Guineas.
Retired to stand at Shadwell Farm in Kentucky, he proved
an immediate success, siring the European Champion
Sakhee and Gr.2 (then) Falmouth Stakes heroine Alshakr
from his first small crops. This prompted his repatriation to
Europe, where he took up duties at Derrinstown.
Since his return, Bahri has been responsible for several high
quality performers, including the Group winners Secret
History, Acts Of Grace and Gesture, and the Stakes
winners Champery, Antonym, Cosmodrome and Albahri.
Bahri’s dam, Wasnah, is a multiple Group producer. She
is a Stakes-placed half-sister to six winners, including
Winglet (Gr.2) and Dance Bid (Gr.3), their dam being the
Champion 2yo Filly and Gr.2 Queen Mary Stakes winner,
Speaking of the decision to move the horse, Derrinstown
Stud’s General Manager Stephen Collins said: “Bahri was a
magnificent racehorse who has sired some very useful
performers on the track, including of course his European
“I’m sure he’ll do a great job for Susan Corbett and, with
his top class pedigree and striking looks, we think he
should prove very popular with British breeders.”
Bahri will be standing alongside the Gr.1 sire Millkom and
first season sire Ferrule (Danehill).
You'll be Grand' a 4 year old won his first race (first run) at Gowran Park in October.
