A lovely recognition for Des as he gets the ITBA award for special contribution to the industry
Des and Brendan Powell in conversation

A great night at the 2013 ITBA awards was had by all!

The beautifully made video of the award ceremony can be viewed on

We would like to thank the ITBA for chosing Des to receive this award and to the team behind the lovely tribute, Allan and Stella who produced the video, Jaqueline Norris for the voice over and of course the contributers John O'Connor, Sir Michael Stoute with his team and John Oxx.  It was deeply moving and a very special night for all of us.
We would also like to welcome to Swordlestoen Little our friends and new clients, Vreni and Toni Kraeuliger and their lovely mare Pasalsa who will visit Azamour this season.

Des celebrating with friends and family!

In the immediate future we have to turn our attention to the Goffs February Sale where we submit two nice colts next Wednesday, Lot 42 an Arcano half brother to six multiple winners and three black type horses including Third Intention . 

The other is the last foal of our great favourite Miss Shaan, this is Lot 187 a Duke of Marmalade colt who looks just so similar to his siblings Damien and Bahceli who both won at two and were very good racehorses indeed, with Damien rated 112 and Bahceli rated 93.

Arcano colt who missed his November Sale engagement due to a fever.
