This was an incredible year for Manor Farm with the highest of highs and lowest of lows thanks to Jwala.  Her listed win in the City Wall stakes in York was an amazing day but nothing compared to her Group 1 success in the Coolmore Nunthorpe, the ultimate win for breeders of sprinters!  Sadly she was lost in Hong Kong in a devastating accident whilst competing in the International Sprint.

We had a great year at the sales with yearlings going to top trainers R Cowell, C Hills, S bin Suroor and others with two retained going to Ollie Pears and Robert Cowell.

11 foals arrived at Manor Farm in 2013 and have progressed well with the Dutch Art ex Soundwave selling at Tattersalls
