Tweenhills sets Harbour Watch and Makfi fees

UNBEATEN Richmond Stakes winner Harbour Watch will stand his first covering season at Tweenhills Farm and Stud in Gloucestershire next year at a fee of £7,500.

He will stand alongside 2,000 Guineas winner Makfi, who will serve his third book of mares at Tweenhills at a fee of £25,000, which has remained unchanged since his retirement.

Makfi is currently at Westbury Stud in New Zealand, where he shuttles to serve southern-hemipshere mares.

Harbour Watch, a son of Acclamation, won all of his three races at two for Richard Hannon last year. He hails from the fine family of Dubai Millennium, Hamas and Timber Country.

Fee terms for Harbour Watch and Makfi, both owned by Qatar Bloodstock, are October 1, special live foal.

Tweenhills manager David Redvers said: “The addition of Harbour Watch is obviously the most exciting development next year at Tweenhills.

"While it remains deeply disappointing that he was unable to reach his undoubted potential on the racetrack, nothing detracts from his stunning credentials as a potential stallion.

"Makfi will return from New Zealand at Christmas and I was delighted to see how he has developed and grown over the last six months, when I saw him last week.

"What excites me most of all is the feedback I have received from breeders on the quality of his foals."
