A total of 55 five and six-year students from Brisley CofE Primary Academy and Rudham CofE Primary Academy both visited the Royal Studs last week, the charity Racing to School announced on Wednesday.

The visit included a lecture by the Royal Studs’ stud manager David Somers and his team covering the history of the stud, the thoroughbred breeding season, and the daily routines to provide the best possible care for each horse. A visit with the Royal Studs’ veterinarian Camilla Scott, the farrier Dermot Barry and many of the equine residents also took place. Students were also able to visit the statue of G1 Gold Cup winner Estimate (Ire) (Monsun {Ger}) on the Sandringham Estate.

John Blake, chief executive of Racing to School said, “We are extremely grateful to the management and team at the prestigious Royal Studs for once again welcoming some very lucky beneficiaries to see the workings of such an historic and special place. We know that this experience will stay with them for a long time and hopefully spark an interest in the fascinating world of breeding and in racing itself.”
