Last night saw the arrival of the last foal from Mick Easterby’s broodmares! The thirteenth foal from the legendary Yorkshire trainer’s base arrived in the shape of a filly by Eagle Top out of Poetic Verse. The work doesn’t finish there though as we still have several of Mick Easterby’s mares and foals at the Stud and we also will be working with the mares as they are covered again.
