Launched in 2008, Wood-Moore Manor Stud’s focus is on commercial breeding and racing with the aim of being recognised for superior quality in our bloodstock and developing a strong culture of loyalty and commitment to our industry and all its stakeholders.
Construction of additional barns provided two additional stable complexes and facilities to run an efficient thoroughbred stud, as well as boutique guest suites for our international clientele.
Wood-Moore Manor Stud’s philosophy is not about the horses that people buy, but the races they breed to win. Founded on passion and personality, Wood-Moore Manor Stud is fast establishing itself as the next generation within the thoroughbred racing and breeding industry, by enhancing the traditions of the “Sport of Kings” and raising the bar.
Our focus is on excellence and breeding tomorrow’s great turf legends today.
