Recent news in is that Bush Hill Stud’s Toreador produced another Stakes Winner with Scott Bros’ handsome Matador Man. He is a full brother to Desert Fighter, a son of Sahara by Mogok, and won the Listed Secretariat Stakes.
It was a great weekend for Scott Bros as Road To Dubai, a son of The Sheik, won the Listed Borrowdale Sprint Cup in Zimbabwe for the second time. Well done to all concerned.
