Summary


Wiganthorpe was foaled in Ireland on 12th April 1984. We purchased him for just 2,000gns as a yearling after he failed the veterinary checks at the sales with a wind infirmity. Wiganthorpe was a striking bright chestnut with three white socks, making him very easy to spot in his races. He was a precocious individual and at the age of two he won the prestigious Gimcrack Stakes at York, ridden by the legendary Willie Carson.

After several seasons at stud in the UK, Wiganthorpe was exported to Australia on 22nd September 1993 and went on to stand as a successful stallion in the southern hemisphere. He died at the age of 23 in November 2007.
