THE 2015 flat turf season will soon draw to a close, an annual period in which a flurry of announcements are made about imminent new additions to the stallion ranks.

The Charlie Hills-trained Cable Bay is on that list. The four-year-old rounded off his racing career with victory in the Group 2 Dubai Challenge Stakes over seven furlongs at Newmarket eight days ago and he will be on the roster at Highclere Stud in 2016.
