Cheveley Park Stud Owner/Breeder Thompson Dies At 84

David Thompson, owner of Cheveley Park Stud in Newmarket, England, has died due to renal failure at the age of 84, according to The Blood-Horse.

Cheveley Park Stud has been home to multiple influential stallions since Thompson purchased the property in 1975. The most notable was Pivotal, winner of the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes and sire of 150 black type winners, who is still breeding today.

Thompson also found success on the track with Russian Rhythm, Echelon, Red Bloom, Integral, and 2016 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf winner, Queen’s Trust, to name a few.

“David Thompson was a very generous, meticulous, sometimes unpredictable man, who always had a certain charm,” said Chris Richardson, the stud’s managing director. “He inspired everyone with his insatiable enthusiasm for business which, thankfully, included a love of racing and breeding, alongside his wife, Patricia, and their family.”
