Gazeley Stud takes charge of Wyck Hall

GAZELEY STUD has taken over the running of another famous Newmarket operation in Wyck Hall Stud.

David and Debi Curran bought Gazeley Stud, famed as the base of Lilly Langtry's mares, in 2008 and an expansion of the ­business - which includes breaking, pre-training and sales consignment - has meant further space is needed.

Gazeley manager Lisa Kitchen told the Racing Post on Tuesday: "We started ­taking on outside clients last July and demand was so strong we were having to turn people away as we didn't want to overstock, so we needed more space.

"We're leasing Wyck Hall from the Jockey Club and we will be completely renovating the stud."

Wyck Hall Stud, located around four miles from ­Gazeley, was established in the 1920s and is best known as the base of Sir Robin McAlpine's ­breeding ­operation, from where he ­produced his homebred Oaks winner Circus Plume and ­Melbourne Cup hero Jeune.
