World Class Equine Breeding Facility Up For Sale

An exceptional Australian land holding in Victoria’s renowned Macedon Ranges has been brought to market by Sam Triggs and Liam Griffiths from Inglis Rural Property in conjunction with Colliers Duncan McCulloch and Jack Brandwood on behalf of Cotton On co-founder Ash Hardwick and prominent horse industry stalwart David Moodie.

Underpinned by high-quality infrastructure and improvements, the 243.4-hectare (601.4 acres) Breeders Farm offers a once-in-a-lifetime equine operation and is expected to attract interest around $20 million.

Inglis Rural Property’s CEO, Sam Triggs, said, “The state-of-the-art complex has been built to exacting standards, designed to suit thoroughbred breeding and equestrian pursuits from rearing yearlings to racehorse spelling. The enormity of the operation is highlighted by the stallion barn that was designed to house shuttle stallions from the Northern Hemisphere – it’s built to global standards.”

“Breeders Farm is currently utilised for equine/thoroughbred pursuits and is supported by outstanding operational infrastructure including multiple paddocks with improved pastures, a large quarantine facility and stock water to each paddock – the property over time has been regarded as one of the leading thoroughbred studs in Victoria.” said Mr Triggs.

The asset has been extensively developed into a large-scale equine breeding operation, with recent structural improvements including a state-of-the-art twenty-two box mare, fourteen-box stallion barn, large architecturally designed office, and stallion parade, with other outstanding improvements including a modern breeding barn, two large stable complexes, foaling barn with veterinarian facilities, a large fully equipped mechanics workshop with staff kitchen and accommodation and plus shedding facilities.

The property also comes with outstanding accommodation, including the main five-bedroom homestead overlooking the stallion barn, two modern four-bedroom, two-bathroom manager’s houses and other modern staff amenities. Colliers’ National Director of Agribusiness, Duncan McCulloch, added, “Breeders Farm benefits from highly productive, free-draining volcanic red basalt soils, ideal for breeding and spelling. There has been extensive redevelopment of all post and rail fencing and excellent laneway access throughout the property”.

Ideally located in the foothills of the renowned Macedon Ranges, 52 lineal kilometres from Melbourne CBD in the heart of Victoria’s horse racing industry, Breeders Farm is highly accessible for thoroughbred operations and presents an outstanding rural offering.

The surrounding region is famous within the equine industry and home to several other leading participants, including Widden Stud and Macedon Lodge, and is also well-known for tourism, lifestyle, wine production and other agricultural pursuits.

Breeders Farm is being offered for sale by Expressions of Interest, closing Wednesday, 26th April at 4 pm (AEST).
