The studs have selected ready-to-run horses, so there’s no waiting for a yearling to be broken in and pre-trained before you can see your horse hit the track. We will be racing as soon as you join up!

The SRC foundation stable is represented by stud farms in the heart of horse country in Cambridge and Karaka, South Auckland. We always endeavour to make it easy for you to keep connected to your stable through trainer visits and stud tours. We have a strong focus on horse welfare, from their racing career right through to life after racing. Our aim is to provide you with front-row insights into what it takes to prepare and care for high-performing thoroughbreds, while educating and strengthening your connection to the sport and horse.
