Ideally located just 500 metres from Ballarat racecourse in Miners Rest, our property has stunning views from Bald Hills, to Mount Warrenheip and Buninyong.
Starting out with just a big 10 hectare paddock, we have been planning and progressively developing the property. From pasture management and water supply, to fencing and shed building, we have been very busy. It is not yet finished yet but we are excited about how far we have come.
With ten hectares to play with, we have plenty of space so each horse has their own 50 x 30 metre paddock attached to a 5.6 x 5.6 metre box.
We are fortunate that Ballarat Racecourse has fantastic training facilities including an all weather uphill training track, grass training track, synthetic track, sand track, swimming pool, bull ring and sand roll. It gives up plenty of options when determining the appropriate training plan for each horse. With the new synthetic race track due to be completed in 2019, Ballarat is certainly the place to train.
The location of the farm was also important to us being only an hour from Melbourne’s major metropolitan racetracks such as Flemington and Moonee Valley and less than an hour’s drive from 10 other racetracks.
