First foals have been arriving for G1 winner Aclaim and have been wowing those in the industry.  What have they been saying?

“We were thrilled with our Aclaim foal.  She has loads of quality, presence and great limbs.  We will definitely be using him in 2019.”  – Ed Player, Whatton Manor Stud

“Aclaim has stamped him well.  He is a strong-bodied colt with plenty of bone especially being out of a maiden mare. He was quick to get up and nurse which I like to see in a foal.” – Becky Marsh, Trinity Park Stud

“A lovely colt with great strength and action.  We are very happy with him.  If he is typical of his sire, it is going to be very exciting.” – Tim Lane, The National Stud

“He’s a good stamp of a foal.  He’s a nice, solid colt and a good example of what the stallion is hopefully going to produce in the future.” – Sue Elsdon, Northmore Stud

Aclaim is standing his second season at The National Stud in Newmarket for a reduced rate of £9,500 in 2019.  Please call Mark McStay on +44 (0)7810 857184 for more information.
