Yapham Mill Stud
The Paddock, Yapham Mill, Pocklington, East Yorks, YO42 1PB
Owner: Reg Bond
Notes: Pocklington businessman Reg Bond, who was a major owner with Bryan Smart (the likes of Monsieur Bond, Bond City, Misu Bond etc) before setting up Geoff Oldroyd as a semi-private trainer, trades under the name Bond Thoroughbred Corporation from the Yapham Mill Stud, just north of Pocklington where the majority of Bond's business interests are centred, and where he wished to build an all-weather race course at one point. The stud is a small modern operation adjoining his home.
The mare Triple Tricks, dam of US Group winner Foxysox, was bought for 13,000gns at the December Sales of 2004 - when Foxysox was just a yearling, whilst listed winner, and fellow Yapham resident, Kanisfluh was purchased as a three year old for 60,000gns at the same sale. Not surprisingly Monsieur Bond (who initially stood at Whitsbury Manor Stud, but relocated to
Norton Grove in 2010) has been heavily utilsed by Yapham Mill, including as the sire of the Oldroyd trained Lady Royale (out of winner Bond Royale) who was a good second in the Hilary Needler Trophy L at Beverley in May 2010 and of Ladies Are Forever (out of the unraced Forever Bond) who a month later was third in Royal Ascot's Queen Mary Stakes G3 before rounding out an excellent 2010 by landing the 130,003 Totepool Two-Year-Old Trophy L at Redcar. In 2011 Ladies Are Forever did even better, landing the Summer Stakes G3 at York as well as finishing third in the Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes L and in 2012 she was third in the Cecil Frail Stakes L and the Kilvington Fillies' Stakes L, before kicking off 2013 strongly by landing the all-weather Cleves Stakes L and the Hever Sprint Stakes L and then the Summer Stakes G3 yet again. In 2014 Ladies Are Forever (by now six) took the Whitsbury Manor Stud Lansdown Fillies' Stakes L at Bath and the Summer Stakes G3 for the third time and was also placed second in the Garrowby Stakes L.
Bond is also a part-owner in his homebred Move In Time (Monsieur Bond - Tibesti) who in 2010 was third in the Weatherbys Super Sprint and second in the Cornwallis Stakes G3 before landing the Rous Stakes L in 2011 as well as being placed in the Sapphire Stakes G3, Prix Cor de Chasse L, Scurry Stakes L and the Abergwaun Stakes L, his 2013 got off to a good start with victory in the 31,505 bet365 Handicap at Doncaster, and finishing third in the
Prix de Saint-Georges G3 and Abernant Stakes G3 whilst the following year he was second in the Prix du Petit Couvert G3 and well placed in a number of other decent races before coming good in the Prix de l'Abbaye G1 to give the stud it's first Group One winner. His 2015 campaign took a while to get going, but he was third in the King George Stakes G2 before landing the Prix du Petit Couvert G3 on Arc Trials Weekend. Another good winner bred by Bond Thoroughbred's at Yapham is the Mick Easterby trained Hoof It (2007 Monsieur Bond - Forever Bond, sold as a foal for 6,000gns) who has won nice races including the 2011 62,250 Stewards' Cup Handicap at Goodwood, only a week after winning the 32,345 Sky Bet Dash at York, having won the 31,155 40% Better Off On Betfair SP Handicap at Doncaster the year before. Later in 2011 he was third in the Beftred Sprint Cup G1 before injury ruled him out for the rest of the season, he was then lightly raced before staging a return to form when again third in the Betfred Sprint Cup G1 of 2013. Still going strong in 2016 he was second in the Scottish Stewards' Cup, before landing Goodwood's Stewards' Sprint. Another good Monsieur Bond homebred is the retained Alfred Hutchinson (2008 out of Chez Charlie) who, trained by Geoff Oldroyd, has won seven races to date including in 2014 the 28,012 Download The Ladbrokes App Handicap at Lingfield and the 2015 Hambleton Handicap L at York.

Ye Olde Mill House Stud
Yafforth Road, Romanby, Northallerton, North Yorkshire
Owner: Umpleby family
Notes: Tom Umpleby died in March 2004 at the age of 82. By this time he had been breeding racehorses for over 40 years, during which time he had bred over 100 winners, which is a remarkable achievement given that he never had much more than two mares at any one time.
Over the years Umpleby had horses in training with, amongst others, such well known Yorkshire trainers as Jack Calvert and Bill Watts. At the time of his death his trainer was Neville Bycroft, who trained over 20 winners for him, the most recent of which was three times winner EB Pearl (Timeless Times - Petite Elite), who was a full sibling of other winners such as Christoperssister and Petite Mac, and a half sister to three other winners inc.three times scorer Effervescence (by Efisio). The best price achieved at the sales in recent years was the 10,000gns for a yearling son of Timeless Times and Petite Elite at Doncaster in 2000.
