Becoming An Owner

Each February we attend the Perth Magic Millions Yearling sales. We have had good success with horses purchased at these sales, or shortly after through the studs. 

We also have attended the Sydney and Melbourne Yearling Sales where we purchased five yearlings in 2012, we then sold shares and introduced many new owners to racing.

We then advertise to owners/prospective owners to purchase shares from 5-100%.

This way you know you are giving yourself the best chance to own a winner as we do all the hard work for you, pre vetting, examining and bloodline analysis.

Upon selling all shares we hold an informal get together to introduce new owners and ‘name’ the horse – which is great fun!



The opportunity to become involved in racing is one shared by thousands of people across Australia and indeed the world!

By owning a horse or a share in one, it opens a whole new and exciting way to spend your time.

Owners are always welcome to visit our property and see their horse. Located near Peppermint Grove Beach we are in a lovely part of South West WA with many tourist attractions close by, so you can include a visit in your next holiday down South if you are not local to Bunbury.
