Notes: Daleside Stud is a trading name of Daleside Nurseries Ltd. who produce and sell trees, shrubs etc. and have been pinhooking and breeding since the early eighties. Daleside Nurseries also have a horses in training with Chris Fairhurst. At the 1999 December Sales they paid (using the name Darley & Townsend) 85,000gns for a Darshaan foal out of Shauna's Honey by Danehill, the dam being a winning 1/2 sister to multiple group winner Ahohoney. They have bred a number of good winners including the multiple winning Tolomeo mare Daleside Ladybird. They have also sold some good horses at yearlings (usually pinhooked as foals) such as Chancellor (bought for 62,000gns, sold for 190,000gns, won 2001 Sandown Classic Trial G3 , 2nd.Prix Guillaume d'Ornano G2, Prix Dollar G2), and Pinctada (1988 Bunbury Cup, 2nd.1989 Bunbury Cup) and the consistent Brisas, who was owned by the Fairhursts, and finished 4th in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot in 1989. They sold Green's Stubbs as a yearling for 34,000gns in 1988. However their most successful period was undoubtedly around September/October 1996. In September Accento (Midyan - Daleside Ladybird) who was bred by Daleside Nurseries won the Grosser Kaufhof-Preis G2 at Cologne. This colt was also group placed numerous times including second in the Premio Emilio Turati G2, Mehl Mulhens Rennen G3 and Grosser Preis Der Dortmunder Wirtschaft G3 and third in the Prix du Muguet G2 and Berlin Brandenburg-Trophy der Landesbank Berlin G2. The dam, Daleside Ladybird was homebred and had won two races when with Tommy Fairhurst. It is not clear when she was sold, although her later foals have been bred by other. Then in October 1996 at the Tattersalls Houghton Sales they sold a colt by Alzao - More Fizz (bought for IR£40,000 the previous year) for 300,000gns, later named Success and Glory it won two races for Henry Cecil. At the 2001 December Sales they paid 90,000gns for a colt by Cape Cross out of listed placed Pacific Grove, having also pinhooked the same mares Spectrum foal for 65,000gns the year before and re-sold it at the Houghton for 70,000gns. This colt was actually sold at a loss for 80,000gns however, named Mokabra, he won the Maurice Lacroix Trophy G2 in 2003, and was also third in the Anglesey Stakes G3. Darley and Townsend purchased a 165,000gns Galileo half sister to Highdown and Elshadi at the 2003 foal sales (bought in a year later for 55,000gns), and a 62,000gns son of Pivotal in 2004.

Danby on Yore, Middleham
Owner: Scrope family
Notes: The Scrope family are one of the most important Catholic families in the country, and are originally related to the Scrope's of Bolton Castle and the Orde-Powlett's (Lord Bolton) of Bolton Stud. Indeed this family is also the surviving male branch of a great mediaeval noble house, which held numerous peerages as well as the Sovereignty of the Isle of Man; though the present family estate came with an heiress in Tudor times. See here for an early family history. Simon Scrope (most of the eldest Scrope's seem to be called Simon!) is the nephew of the late Adrian Scrope OBE (himself born at Danby Hall), who was one of the leading bloodstock agents and stud managers of the post war era. Adrian Scope was married to Everilda Sykes, daughter of Sir Mark Sykes of Sledmere Stud. Simon Scrope himself was at one time a director of the Anglo-Irish Bloodstock Agency, and served for 24 years on the York Race Committee, until the end of 2004, during which time he only missed four meetings! Simon Scrope died aged 75 in March 2010, having served in the Coldstream Guards before persuing a career in insurance. Until recently the family maintained a small stud at Danby, although on a much smaller scale than in the past.
