Visit to Waikato and Cambridge Studs

On Thursday, Dame Cindy and Dr Davies visited the Waikato and Cambridge Studs – two of New Zealand’s premier Thoroughbred nurseries, each carrying an international reputation for breeding excellence. While there, she met some of the resident stallions, including Savabeel – descendent of the legendary Sir Tristram. Queen Elizabeth II was patron of the New Zealand Thoroughbred Association for 32 years over the course of her reign. On a personal request during her tour to New Zealand in 1990, the Queen visited Cambridge Stud, where she was hosted by pioneering Thoroughbred breeder and trainer, Sir Patrick Hogan.
