Following the part dispersal of the late Duke of Roxburghe’s Floors Stud, current stud manager, Christopher Gillon, has taken over the operations from this historic base under the name, Gillon Bloodstock @ Floors Castle.
Steeped in racing and sales history, Floors Stud is situated on the beautiful Floors Castle estate, and has been renowned for caring for top-quality mares, foals and yearlings with the utmost passion and attention to detail; something that Gillon Bloodstock @ Floors Castle vows to continue.
The 37-year-old has worked at Floors for 8 years, progressing from stud hand to stud manager. During that time the stud has raised, produced and sold five individual million-pound yearlings, the highlights coming last year, under Gillon’s management, with the sale of the Dubawi colt out of Cushion and the Frankel colt out of Attraction for 2.1 and 1.1 million guineas respectively.
The stud itself is steeped in racing and sales history. The land has proved exceptional for rearing and prepping young stock, as seen from the Classic and multiple Group 1 winners the stud has produced.
The facilities include a horse walker, lunge rings, turnout paddocks and an estate conducive for hand-walking yearlings.
Gillon Bloodstock @ Floors Castle is fully operational from January 2021 and is taking a limited number of boarding mares, weanlings and spellers.
Come the autumn, Gillon Bloodstock will have its own draft at all the major yearling sales.
