Diploma course students enjoy their graduation ceremony At Newmarket on June 24, 19 students graduated from the National Stud’s Diploma course at a ceremony held at the stud in conjunction with a celebration of the course’s 25th anniversary. Around 100 people were in attendance and graduates received certificates and prizes between speeches given by the National Stud’s outgoing Chairman Christopher Spence and guest speaker Paul Darling from the Horseracing Betting and Levy Board (HBLB). In addition to the students and their families, and also representing the National Stud, were Lady Halifax and incoming chairman Ben Sangster. Kirsten Rausing, chairman of the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association and owner of Lanwades Stud was present; as were Chris Richardson and Joe Grimwade representing other prominent stud farms. Newmarket’s Flat trainer Ed Dunlop awarded the Tim Dunlop Memorial Scholarship to top student Thomas Biggs. In the 25 years of the diploma graduates have included Lord Grimthorpe, Prince Khalid Abdullah’s racing manager, Ed Harper of Whitsbury Manor Stud and Ed Dunlop. The National Stud has asked for previous graduates of either their apprentice or diploma courses to get in touch with the stud if they would like to join the increasing number of alumni. The afternoon was rounded off with a parade of the stud’s stallions: Bahamian Bounty, Cockney Rebel, My Boy Charlie and Pastoral Pursuits.”
