Juddmonte Farms has welcomed Sabine Bouard to the Nominations Team at Banstead Manor Stud, where she will be working alongside Simon Mockridge and James O’Donnell. Sabine will take over the role from Pat Rule, who is moving to a new role within the Stud Office.

Sabine brings with her a variety of skills, including a solid understanding of the thoroughbred industry gained from over 13 years working in and around Newmarket, including a 10-year stint working in international shipping at Rapido Horse Services.

Sabine is also fluent in German and French, which will be particularly useful for Juddmonte’s ever expanding European client base.

“I feel very privileged to be joining the team at this very exciting time,” says Sabine. “To be working with such a prestigious roster of stallions is an honour, and I cannot wait for the breeding season to start!” 

After more than 25 years of loyal service Pat Rule was due to retire from the Nominations Department at the end of the 2013 season. However, Juddmonte Farms is delighted to confirm that Pat has agreed to remain working as a Stud Secretary on a seasonal basis for the foreseeable future.
