Welcome to Juddmonte

About us

Juddmonte is the international thoroughbred horse racing and breeding enterprise founded in 1980 by the late Prince Khalid bin Abdullah.

Under Prince Khalid’s vision and direction, Juddmonte has, for over 40 years, consistently produced top-class homebred thoroughbred horses competing at the highest level on racecourses across the world. We have bred over 100 individual Group/Grade 1 winners of over 200 Group/Grade 1 races, with our horses racing in Prince Khalid’s famous pink, green and white colours.

About Prince Khalid

Prince Khalid’s interest in horseracing traced back to the 1950s. He first became an owner in the mid-1970s and, in 1979, won his first Group 1 with Known Fact in the Middle Park Stakes at Newmarket and purchased his first broodmare with the private acquisition of Metair.

For 40 years, Juddmonte’s achievements resulted from his enthusiasm and direct involvement, which translated into an in-depth knowledge of his horses, their pedigrees and their families. The Prince’s time spent in the early days developing his understanding, finding the right horses, the right farms and the right people to look after them established the foundations for Juddmonte’s track record.

Prince Khalid died peacefully on Tuesday 12th January 2021 at the age of 85. He leaves a legacy that will stand the test of time.

History of Juddmonte

The name Juddmonte was first used in the context of Prince Khalid’s racing and breeding operation in 1980. Already a two-year-old Group 1 winner, Known Fact’s victory in the 1980 2000 Guineas established the colt as an exciting future stallion prospect and Prince Khalid acquired Cayton Park Stud and Pudders Farm in Wargrave-on-Thames, Berkshire, as Juddmonte Farms.

Juddmonte’s first homebred winner came courtesy of Fine Edge, who was out of Prince Khalid’s first broodmare Metair in April 1982. That same month, a three-year-old filly named Slightly Dangerous was purchased following her win in the Fred Darling Stakes.
