Welcome to Cheveley Park Stud

In 1975 my late husband, David, and I purchased Cheveley Park Stud, then in receivership, having dwindled down to 270 acres. The property, at the time, was not at its best but we could see our dream.

Now, as Newmarket’s oldest stud farm, Cheveley Park Stud has taken on a new lease of life. It is a flourishing stud that embraces every element of the wonderful sport of racing. We are proud to stand 2 stallions, own 80 plus broodmares, of which some 40 are Stakes winners and/or Stakes producers, consign quality drafts at the sales, and race one of the biggest strings in Britain and Ireland with more than 80 horses in training with 12 trainers. Recent years have proved special for Cheveley Park Stud with homebred filly QUEEN’S TRUST winning the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita in 2016 and PERSUASIVE winning the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot on Champions’ Day . The highlights of the 2023 season was when INSPIRAL, whose first three dams were all bred by Cheveley Park Stud, won the Group 1 Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard  Jacques le Marois, for the second year, before recording our third victory in the Group 1 Virginbet Sun Chariot Stakes and showed her excellent turn of foot when winning the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf at Santa Anita.

My family and I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of Cheveley Park Stud and do hope you enjoy learning more about us here.
