For over 70 years the fourth generation stud, Kambula, is home to one of South Australia’s leading thoroughbred farms. Nestled between the coast and golden cropping region of the Yorke Peninsula, Kambula is home to over 1100 acres of land, accommodating both the 30 strong list of broodmares and a variety of crops.
Kambula has boldly tipped its traditional yearling selling model on its head, now taking its whole draft of weanlings up to the annual Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale each May. This year’s draft is made up of leading sires from the Hunter Valley and Victoria.
Located only 90 minutes from the Adelaide, Kambula opens its gates to any potential buyers to inspect this year’s progeny, and looks forward to continuing the family owned and ran tradition for many years to come.
10,000 acres of beautiful Limestone Coast
Mill Park Stud is located in the upper south east of South Australia, close to the world renowned Coorong National Park. The farm consists of 10,000 acres of undulating limestone based country with renovated lucerne and veldt grass pastures.
The horse enterprise has been established on 2,000 acres with an average paddock size of 40-50 acres. Our low stocking rate of 1 horse per 8-10 acres enables a natural free range upbringing which we believe is part of the successful raising of competitive racehorses. Apart from our breeding operation we also spell racehorses for some of the leading South Australian trainers.
The family also owns a 300 acre irrigated lucerne property in Meningie which allows the supply of consistently high quality fodder to the farm.
Willow Grove Stud is situated in the heart of South Australian horse breeding country, near the picturesque town of Woodside

the summer months for mares and foals, and spelling racehorses.

Studs in South Australia. Over the years it has stood many successful stallions such as Native Prince(USA), Holborn (Ire),
Blazing Saddles, Stargazer (NZ) , Keepers, Centre Stalls(Ire), Mugharreb (USA), Clangalang, Mint Lane (USA) and Host (CHI).
The 200 acre property is also home to 15 to 20 broodmares, that have fed the tracks of South Australia and beyond, with
numerous winners in recent seasons. Willow Grove Stud can proudly claim to have sold 252 individual winners of 905 races
through the Adelaide Sales as of March 2019.

Leading SA 2YO, SA Horse Of The Year Finalist, SABOIS 2YO Premiership, SABOIS Breeders Premiership.
In June 2016 Willow Grove Stud purchased another property, in the big gum country between Birdwood and Mount Pleasant.
Formally a cattle grazing farm it has been fully developed to grow our Weanlings/Yearlings. It has met with immediate success
with the first crop grown there producing the multiple Group 3 winning 2YO Tequila Time, Stakeswinner Platinum Life,
and two exciting prospects that both won their first two starts, in Stryke In Style and Viduka.

Ducatoon Park is located at Kadina on South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula, about a two hour drive north of Adelaide.
The property – one of the most picturesque in the region – covers 325 acres of limestone country and is dedicated to rearing of thoroughbred racehorses.
Peter, wife Valmai and family purchased the property in 1995. It had been used for grain growing and hadn’t had any horses on it since the ‘horse-team days’.
The original property was divided into just 5 paddocks with 3 water troughs. The only power point outside of the house was used by the pressure pump to supply rainwater to the house.
After nine years of hard work the family transformed the property into a boutique horse stud. Raceways were established to connect all 17 paddocks and 155 gates were installed, all designed for simplicity of work and convenience.
Thousands of trees have been planted at Ducatoon Park, not only for shelter and windbreaks, but also for ‘sighters’. Each paddock is separated from another by rows of trees or raceways. Fences are all 5’ high with poly-pipe on the top wire for easier sighting.
When Peter and Valmai shifted to Ducatoon Park, they brought with them 6 mares of their own and 3 outside mares. These ranks have now swelled . These ‘outsiders’ are owned by clients as far away as Gold Coast, Sydney, Birdsville, Pt. Lincoln and Adelaide.
