Located in picturesque North Shropshire, Mickley Stud was established in 2005 by Richard Kent and his partner Clare Lloyd. Richard was previously a partner in Helshaw Grange Stud so for many years he has been responsible for standing successful stallions popular with breeders from both codes.
Mickley Stud quickly established a reputation for successful Flat and National Hunt breeding, and we have been able to embrace change, and an increased focus on breeding for the Flat, to build a current stallion roster which gives breeders the opportunity to produce commercially-attractive foals and yearlings.
We aim to provide good value options for breeders, and offer excellent prospects for success both at auction and on the racecourse. We have earned a reputation for professionalism and high standards of care, and we are proud of the impressive results achieved by Mickley graduates, both at the sales and during their racing career.
Our current stallions, Massaat, Heeraat, and Yorgunnabelucky, continue in the tradition which Richard Kent has established over many years. His policy has served him and his customers very well, standing well-bred, cost-effective stallions - as also illustrated by former stallions Overbury (leading NH sire), Karinga Bay (champion sire of chasers), and Captain Gerrard (Leading First Season Sire).
