  • Breed: Thoroughbred
  • Breeding: By Ben Hawke out of Faerie, by Vieuxce Manoir


Ben Faerie was bought as a two-year-old at the Ascot sales by Diana Scott, for £250. It was originally intended to use him as a stud for producing fox hunters out of half-bred mares. He began breeding as a three-year-old, and produced over 800 offspring. The first were used in the hunt field, until Virginia Leng had amazing success with two Ben Faerie sons: Priceless and Night Cap. These sons gave him a name as an eventing sire.

Ben Faerie had an amazing ability to pass on not only speed, but courage, tremendous jumping ability and a wonderful temperament. In 1998, 1% of all horses in Britain were by the great stallion.
