In the book, Lord of the Rings, Ithilien was the garden of Gondor. This Ithilien was created as a small breeding farm for thoroughbreds.
Our brand is the “I” for Ithilien, which also stands for our goal for our thoroughbreds. The wavy tops are strong backs; the double uprights are the straight legs & the red centre is their big, strong heart.
We have mares, yearlings & foals at home. A calm gelding, Red, escorts any of them on the float & looks after the weanlings. Retired pacer, London Legend (a star on the racetrack), supervises the mare paddock.
Out racing currently we have Fly My Pretty, a 4yo chestnut mare. After a long break from her debut race she had a great win at Ashburton on 7 July 2012.
We form partnerships to race with people keen to come to the races, to enjoy the fun, hospitality & keen excitement an owner has when your horse parades to race.
Please have a look through the pages illustrating our home &, if you’re interested in joining us, please feel free to call me.
