Juddmonte wins leading TBA award for 2008

The Thoroughbred Breeders' Association has announced its awards for 2008 with Juddmonte Farms taking the award for the leading British-based breeder (Flat).

It is the fifth time that Prince Khalid Abdullah's stud has taken the award since the turn of the millennium.

The stud also received a second award courtesy of its broodmare Arrive, who was awarded the H.J. Joel Silver Salver as leading British-based Broodmare of the Year.

The mare is the dam of Visit, who won the Group 3 Oak Tree Stakes at Goodwood in August, finished third in the Group 1 Sun Chariot Stakes and the Matriarch Stakes at Hollywood Park before finishing a fine fourth in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf.

On the stallion front, Pivotal takes his third successive Barleythorpe Cup as leading British-based sire by individual winners and second successive BBA Silver Cigar Box for leading British-based stallion according to earnings.

Tweenhills stallion Lucky Story wins the Tattersall Silver Salver for the leading British-based first-season sire on the Flat.

Alflora
and Overbury's success in the NH sphere has assured them as recepients of awards with the Shade Oak stallion takinghis fifth Horse & Hound Cup as the leading active British-based NH stallion by individual winners, while Mickley Stud's Overbury has received the Whitbread Silver Salver for the leading British-based NH stallion based on earnings.

The late Ann Jenkins, who died in October, has been awarded the TBA Silver Salver of Special Merit. She was breeder of this year's three-time Group 1 winner, Lush Lashes.
