MATTMU was born and raised at Bearstone and has returned home for 2022.

 

We have been extremely impressed with the quality of his stock and the way in which he has significantly upgraded his mares.

 

For example, his 2yo filly Favourite Child is rated 95 having won almost £80,000 last year in prize money and bonuses as well as coming within a head of winning the Listed Criterium de Vitesse at Longchamp.

 

Her sire thoroughly deserves the extra opportunities he will be getting this breeding season.
