Arena Racing Company (ARC) are delighted to announce that as a bonus for winning the Lansdown Fillies Stakes at Bath Racecourse on 19th April, Whitsbury Manor Stud are offering a free 2014 nomination for the winning filly, to a Whitsbury stallion of the owners choice.

The Whitsbury Manor Stud Lansdown Fillies Stakes is the most high profile race run at Bath Racecourse and has always attracted quality entries. The Listed race has a prize fund of £40,000.

Ed Harper, Director of Whitsbury Manor Stud said: It’s great to be able to offer an extra bonus for winning the Lansdown Fillies Stakes. We are very keen to support this Listed race as there is a serious lack of opportunities for quality sprinting fillies. As a result, this race is building an impressive roll of honour with recent past winners Enticing, Look Busy, Gilt Edge Girl, and Beyond Desire all going on to Group race success following on from Bath.”

Katie Stephens General Manager at Bath Racecourse “We would like to thank Whitsbury Manor Stud and the European Breeders Fund for their continued sponsorship of the Lansdown Fillies stakes and this fantastic added bonus that Whitsbury are offering is a really great initiative. We will watch the progress of any future progeny with great interest”

Stallions currently standing at Whitsbury Manor Stud are COMPTON PLACE, FOXWEDGE, SHOWCASING and SAKHEE’S SECRET.
