A’Ali sporting chance winners announced


Newsells Park Stud has announced the winners of their unique sporting promotion for their stallion A’Ali. Breeders sending mares to this triple Group 2 winning juvenile and Group 2 winning three-year-old for the 2023 breeding season were entered into a prize draw to win two tickets each to a World Championships.

Football legend, Ossie Ardiles, undertook the draw for breeders who participated, sending over 100 mares to A’Ali in his second season. 

The lucky winners of the tickets and hospitality at the Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles Final in a few weeks are John and Daniel James from Brookside Stud.  In addition, Fiona and Bob Temple of Saxtead Livestock are off to Paris with two tickets for the Rugby World Cup final on 28th October 2023 including travel and three nights’ accommodation. 

Lastly David and Emma Armstrong from Highfield Farm are set to enjoy tickets to the 2024 Dubai World Cup with flights and three nights in a top class hotel.

Newsells Park Stud’s General Manager, Julian Dollar, said: “A’Ali’s partners were keen to highlight what a great sporting chance a mare had of producing quality, fast and precocious winners if she was covered by one of the fastest and most precocious sprinters of recent years.

“We are delighted with the support for A’Ali from breeders this year, not only because of this promotion but also given the quality of his first foals, with many breeders returning their mares to him for a second time.  Congratulations to all the winners, and we look forward to seeing A’Ali’s first foals at the sales later this year.”
