The de Trafford family established Newsells Park Stud in 1926 and bred the 1959 Derby winner, Parthia, and King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner, Alcide.

In 2000 Jacobs Holdings AG purchased the stud. Since that time Newsells Park Stud has grown to its present size of 1,200 acres, and has been restored and is maintained as a thriving habitat for wildlife as well as horses. 70,000 trees have been planted to help provide natural shelter, and the soil's high calcium content and the excellent climate encourages a variety of herbage to thrive in our post and rail paddocks.

In addition, an innovative composting facility introduced by Klaus J. Jacobs, recognizes the immeasurable environmental benefits of recycling the manure and spreading clean compost on to the land.

The old adage of 'range and change' is as valid today as it was when coined by our predecessors. Therefore, we aim to have no more than 200 horses on the stud, so that every horse always has ample, quality grazing 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

State of the art, light and airy barns have also been built. Each barn is surrounded by its own paddocks and is situated next to the barn manager's house to ensure someone is always nearby.

In 2008, a new stallion facility called the Grange Farm Stallion Unit was developed on the west side of the stud. This world class facility caters for all the needs of our stallions and 'walking-in' mares, as we seek to offer the best service and facilities for our clients.

We use one of the most advanced veterinary clinics in the world, Rossdale & Partners, while our farrier, Dermot Barry, is renowned in the racing and breeding industry.
