Breeder (B),  Owner (O)

Associated Places:  Leybourne Grange Stud, nr Maidstone, Kent; The Lodge, West Malling, Kent

Description:

Thomas Phillips was a hop grower and a farmer in Kent who first registered his colours in 1886. He had a large stud, Leybourne Grange, near Maidstone, which had formerly belonged to the breeder and turf reformer Sir Joseph Hawley. There, from one of his many mares, Black Duchess, he bred two animals whose names live forever in turf history - Bay Ronald (whose influence only became apparent after he had been sold to France), and the filly Black Cherry, one of the great tap root sources of Classic winners.
