About mainechancefarms

Maine Chance Farms is one of South Africa's premier stud farms and is perennially amongst the top breeders at season's end. Established in the late 1960's by Godfrey Gird, the farm passed into the ownership of Graham Beck (subsequently also the owner of Gainesway Farm in Ky) in the 70's. Keeping up with the international connection, Andreas Jacobs from Germany purchased Maine Chance Farms in 2002. He also has the famed Gestüt Fährhof and Newsells Park Stud, in England, in his 'stable' of stud farms. The stud stands world-class stallions such as SILVANO (GER) and BLACK MINNALOUSHE (USA), who were recently joined by LATERAL(GB) Champion German 3YO, and Champion Miler in 2006; as well as QUERARI (GER), the joint top-rated older horse in Germany in 2010.
