Today we can exclusively reveal some exciting news! Our unique Angels’ Share Glass droppers are set for a new use - artificially inseminating thoroughbred horses.
We’ve been commissioned by the British Racehorse Breeding Authority (BRBA) to create a slightly larger than usual dropper which will be used for the artificial insemination of mares.
And the first stallion to test the dropper will be the winner of next Saturday’s Grand National Race at Aintree.
Angels’ Share Glass Managing Director Karen Somerville admits she was surprised by the rather unusual request but didn’t hesitate to say `yes’.
Whichever horse wins the Grand National on April 8 will be the first to go out to stud with a little help from Angels’ Share Glass.
Once collected, the horse’s sperm will be transferred via the dropper into a specially selected mare which is being kept at a secret location until the process is complete.
If she becomes pregnant, the organisation plans to roll out a special new breeding programme combining the talents of horse racing winners and Angels’ Share Glass droppers to produce the champions of the future.
