JUDDMONTE FARMS RECEIVES OUTSTANDING OWNER ECLIPSE AWARD
This is the fourth Outstanding Owner (1992, 2003 & 2016) and 16th Eclipse Award for Juddmonte Farms.
Taken from the Thoroughbred Daily News, 26th January 2018:
Owing in great measure to ARROGATE's victory in the inaugural Gr.1 Pegasus Invitational Stakes, Khalid Abdullah's Juddmonte Farms Inc. was named America's outstanding owner for the second year running and for the fourth time overall. The operation's 30 winners in 2017 and purse money of $10.8 million does not include the $6 million earned by Arrogate in the Gr.1 Dubai World Cup last March.
Juddmonte collected nine graded stakes in 2017, four of which came at Grade 1 level, including wins from the privately purchased Paulassilverlining in the Madison Stakes and Humana Distaff Stakes and from homebred Antonoe in the Just A Game Stakes. Other graded winners included Projected, Suffused and Grand Jete (DANSILI).
CEO Juddmonte Group, Douglas Erskine Crum accepted the award and said: "On behalf of Prince Khalid, thank you all very much for this very prestigious award, which will thrill him. He's had a fantastic year, and very special thank you to his staff, many of whom have been with him for up to 30 years, and also his trainers: Bill Mott, Chad Brown and Bob Baffert."
