Following the part dispersal of the late Duke of Roxburghe’s Floors Stud, current stud manager, Christopher Gillon, took over the operations from this historic base under the name, Gillon Bloodstock @ Floors Castle. Steeped in racing and sales history, Floors Stud is situated close to the town of Kelso in the Scottish Borders, adjacent to the River Tweed and on the beautiful Floors Castle estate. The stud has been renowned for caring for top-quality mares, foals and yearlings with the utmost passion and attention to detail; something that Gillon Bloodstock @ Floors Castle vows to continue. You can read more about Gillon Bloodstock, as reported by the Racing Post here.
The stud, in it's former incarnation of Floors Stud, was also named Consignor of the Year in the recent Racing Post 2020 awards, demonstrating how our highest calibre of care, attention to detail and expertise has proven successful. You can read more here.
"We bought three very nice yearlings from Floors Stud at the yearling sales, they were beautifully turned out and very well presented. Chris and his team did a very professional job."
