Focus on Dick Turpin fillies

The English National Stud has sent more photos of this year’s northern foal crop by Mungrup Stud shuttler Dick Turpin.

Dick Turpin covered 101 mares in his second southern book last year and Mungrup will stand him for an $8,800 (inc gst) service fee in 2014.

The National Stud’s Amy Taylor snapped these three fillies during the northern spring.
