Strawberry Fields in tune with first Group winner in Hong Kong
Every aspiring operation needs a foundation mare and it looks as if Strawberry Fields Stud has found its matriarch in Desert Berry, whose son Flying Thunder has become one of Hong Kong’s most exciting new talents.
Strawberry Fields keeps roughly ten broodmares on its books and has been developing over the last decade by breeding not only for sale but often for ownership syndication.
Flying Thunder, sired by the lamented Archipenko, was one of those offered at auction and raised £25,000 at the Goffs UK Silver Yearling Sale in 2016. Emerging first under the guise of Archie McKellar, he won a Kempton novice for Ralph Beckett the following season before a transfer to the care of Frankie Lor.
