Welcome To Mickley Stud

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 has for many years been responsible for standing successful stallions popular with breeders from both codes.

Mickley Stud has established a reputation for successful breeding, and we are proud to stand a selection of stallions with excellent cross bloodlines at sensible prices. We aim to provide stallion options which will offer the possibility of solid commercial returns for breeders, but which also offer realistic prospects of breeding offspring which actually win races. We believe that breeders need winners to establish the credentials of their mares' pedigrees before considering more expensive stallion matings.

Our current stallions, Massaat, Heeraat, and Yorgunnabelucky, continue in the same tradition which Richard Kent has established over many years. His policy has served him and customers of the stud very well, standing well-bred, cost-effective stallions - as illustrated by former stallions Overbury (leading NH sire), Karinga Bay (champion sire of chasers), and Captain Gerrard (Leading First Season Sire).

For 2021, we have added Almanaara to the roster, and are very excited to have this son of Shamardal at the stud, who is a half-brother to the renowned Dark Angel and offers exceptional potential for breeders at an affordable price.

We always aim to provide good value options for breeders, and believe we 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.

Mickley Stud continues to be one of the highest-producing stud of winners both on the flat and National Hunt, which proves that our ethos of rearing in herds and our feeding regime work, with the results to back up our commitment to breeding strong, tough, individuals.
