Boutique Thoroughbred breeding property in Northern South Australia

Adelaide Plains Bloodstock is a family owned and operated breeding operation located in the Gawler Belt.


With over 20 years’ experience of breeding and racing horses, Henny Leverink, his son Ben and his wife Sam Leverink made the big commitment two years ago to start their own business and begin investing in some nice broodmares.

The Adelaide Plains breeding business has already generated some early great results “In our first year in business we sold a lovely filly to team McEvoy who we retained a share in, she is looking very promising. It was also a great thrill to break the 100k barrier in our first ever draft.” said Ben Leverink

The farm has also committed to a  partnership with the Gawler & Barossa club that will see the major sprint race so rich in history on the racing calendar – The Evanston Sprint, now be known as the Adelaide Plains Bloodstock Evanston Sprint.

GBJC Chief Executive Officer Shane Collins was delighted to announce the partnership, “Adelaide Plains Bloodstock have really stamped their brand on the local breeding scene in such a quick time, and we look forward to helping them grow even bigger into the future.”

The Evanston Sprint is conducted on the club’s biggest day of the year, Gawler Cup day.

“Adelaide Plains Bloodstock are really excited about securing the naming rights to the Evanston Sprint for the next 4 years and partnering the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club. We look forward to a great partnership with the race and hope it along with the huge Gawler Cup day can continue to grow” added Leverink.

With a committed vision in bringing the best possible pedigrees from around Australia to the local market and to grow and expand the breeding industry in the region while constantly looking to upgrade bloodstock, the future looks exciting for Adelaide Plains Bloodstock and the passionate Leverink family
