Kevin’s stud on the mar­ket for £2.95m

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

THE im­pend­ing sale of a premier stud in South Wales is a poignant re­minder of the loss to rac­ing of pop­u­lar breeder and owner Kevin Mercer who has died.

He en­joyed his great­est suc­cess with Zanz­ibar, trained by Michael Bell, in the Ital­ian Oaks.

Mercer and his wife Su­san cre­ated Usk Val­ley Stud from two ad­join­ing farms in Mon­mouthshire. Set in 136 acres it is on the mar­ket for £2.95m.

In ad­di­tion, mares and youg­sters bred at the stud are due to go un­der the ham­mer at Tat­ter­salls.
