Patinack Farms has shown they have faith in the Queensland breeding industry, establishing an arm of their thoroughbred nursery here in time for the 2011 breeding season.
Monaco Consul (NZ), Wonderful World and Teranaba will be the first of their stallions to stand at Patinack’s new property at Benobble, near Canungra in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
The farm will also hold 150 of Patinack’s top quality broodmare band and the number of stallions they stand will grow in future years.
“Having our very own stallions in Queensland will be an exciting time for both Queendland Breeders and Patinack Farm, providing a huge boost to the Queensland Thoroughbred Market through three very different Group 1 winnner’s offering breeders endless opportunities,” said CEO Peter Beer.
TBQA President Basil Nolan says the move proves Queenslands reputation as a high quality breeding ground is strengthening significantly.
“It’s fantastic to see that a thoroughbred nursery with the reputation of Patinack Farms has the confidence in Queensland to set up here,” said Mr Nolan.
The countdown’s on for Rockhampton’s historic Capricornia Yearling Sale, which kicks off on Thursday.
In association with the Central Queensland Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CQTBA), and the Rockhampton Jockey Club (RJC), an exciting program of events has been developed around the sale.
Graduates of the 2011 Magic Millions Capricornia Yearling Sale will be eligible to pay up for the 2012 $5.05 million Magic Millions Race Series, and $180,000 Capricornia Yearling Sale Race Series.
A total of $5,230,000 in prize-money will be on offer to graduates of the Capricornia Yearling Sale, with a range of feature races including the world famous $2 million BMW Magic Millions 2YO Classic held on the Gold Coast each January.
I would like to congratulate Magic Millions Chairman, Gerry Harvey, on the appointment of highly respected bloodstock agent Vin Cox as Managing Director of Magic Millions.
Vin has got a great name in the industry, with his involvement over 23 years and he has developed a terrific rapport with a lot of people.
I think he will do a great job for Magic Millions and am confident he will listen to breeders and our concerns.
I am looking forward to working closely with Vin to ensure the Queensland Thoroughbred industry continues it’s strong growth.
Vin said he is nervously excited about the move and his new position, but has no plans to reinvent the wheel.
