Her Majesty the Queen has kindly given permission for more than 60 paintings and 150 prints and drawings from the Royal Collection to be reproduced in a remarkable history of the studs under Royal patronage from the reign of Henry VIII to that of Queen Elizabeth II.


THOROUGHBREDS OF THE CROWN is a major publishing project presented as a collector’s leather-bound limited edition book. It presents a fascinating historical account of the Royal Studs throughout the centuries – from the Duke of Cumberland’s 18th-Century Cranbourne Lodge Stud where he bred the sires Herod and the unbeaten Eclipse, from whom 98% of thoroughbreds today descend, to Her Majesty the Queen’s Sandringham and Wolferton Studs which produced the hugely popular classic successes of Aureole, Dunfermline and Highclere.


Sir Michael Oswald KCVO: “The production of ‘Thoroughbreds of the Crown’ is impeccable. It is the most informative and comprehensive book ever written about the Royal Studs – and the most beautifully illustrated.”
