AllanBloodlines South Africa

Allan Bloodlines has been active for 17 Sign Up for Racing Minds years in the South African thoroughbred industry, the world’s 8th largest. The South African thoroughbred is a very good representative of the breed able to compete at world class when given the opportunity.

David Allan spends many months of the year in South Africa has invested substantially in SA bloodstock, currently owning ten broodmares and their followers and half a dozen fillies in training directly in our colours or under leases.

Racing management pays off, and syndication takes place under “HintleshamRacing South Africa” in which colours many runners have passed the post first to the delight of shareholders and partners from South Africa, UK, Ireland and elsewhere.

Allan-selected horses have built a good track record (approx 74% winners to runners, 93% winners or placed). On the breeding side, many fillies and mares have been imported from UK and Ireland, or bought locally to race then breed.

In addition to our own stock, we manage a further 12-15 broodmares for overseas owner/investors. AllanBloodlines also manages South Africa based stallions – sometimes as many as eight or as few as five.

Data on our South African horses can be found on these pages: Racing (Horses in Training), Breeding (Foalings and Matings) and Stallions.
