Hesmonds Stud


Success from the very start

Nurlan Bizakov’s revival of what would become his main stud came to fruition shortly through the likes of Altyn Orda (Oh So Sharp S. Gr.3, 2nd Falmouth S. Gr.1, 3d Sun Chariot Stakes Gr.1), Nausha (Musidora S. Gr.3), Rasima (2nd Hoppings Fillies' S. Gr.3) and Tomyris (Chartwell Fillies' S. Gr.3). These excellent results echoed an array of strong performers bred at Hesmonds Stud in the past, such as the Prix de la Foret (Gr.1) winner, Pas de Seul; the International Stakes (Gr.1) graduate and Derby, Eclipse and Coronation Cup on-the-board finisher, Terimon; the Premio Lydia Tesio (Gr.2) heroine, Claxon, and the Canadian International Stakes (Gr.1) and Sun Chariot Stakes (Gr.2) winner, Infamy.

The quintessential modern stud

Thanks to generous investments, Hesmonds Stud has grown into one of the most attractive and modern farms in England.

“At the very beginning there was a lot to do. However, Nurlan Bizakov had the intention and the ambition to make something really big. The renovation works began in 2011 and lasted three years, and they entailed pulling down and totally rebuilding three barns, changing more than 20 kilometres of fencing, installing a training track at which you can gallop the younger horses, and renovating the foaling boxes and the veterinary unit... It has become a magnificent stud farm which is located in a very stunning and hilly area. Moreover, we are close to a very good veterinary practice which is a real plus. We invariably strive to do the best for the horses.”
