Over the past 25 years Egmont Park Stud has established itself as one of the leading harness racing studs in Australia. Burns Bloodstock, the Burns family - Ray and Marina and sons Glenn and Paul are maintaining the tradition of quality and breeding high class horses. Winners in excess of $30 million have been bred at Egmont Park Stud.
The stud has also developed an extensive involvement within the Thoroughbred industry. Egmont Park Stud offers year-round agistment for mares, foals, weanlings and also prepares yearlings for sale at all the main Thoroughbred and Standardbred Sales.
Egmont Park is based on limestone country rich in calcium and trace elements essential for strong bone development in young horses. Almost half the property is cultivated with the balance being wooded grassland. Fodder crops are grown year round to ensure there is enough nutrient rich grazing and crops for grain and quality hay are harvested for supplementary feeding.
The breeding scene is constantly changing and as a result Egmont Park is always on the lookout for Stallions to enhance the quality of bloodlines available for consideration by our clients.
Egmont Park Stud continues to breed top quality yearlings with the sole purpose of selling these yearlings and weanlings at the leading sales.
While many of our clients breed to race, more and more clients are starting to join us by selling their yearlings at the yearling sales.
