TO create the finest stallion roster in the land and to ESTABLISH australasia’s leading breeding operation and pretraining facility WITH A SPECIAL FOCUS ON THE ASIAN Market WHICH IS THE GOLDEN FUTURE OF THE RACING AND BREEDING INDUSTRY
Aquis Farm was originally established in Canungra, Queensland in 2015. The Wadham Park Racing Facility along with three surrounding large acre properties were amalgamated to create one of Australia’s finest integrated racing and breeding operation. The previous owner spared no cost in developing what is now Aquis Farm, with a total investment on land and facilities exceeding AUD$30 million.
2017 saw Aquis Farm embark on a new era, taking over the management of the historic Emirates Park property in Murrurundi, New South Wales. The reputation of this famous property, in the heart of the nation’s horse capital has been firmly established through generations. Aquis Farm will continue that proud tradition, as well as create a new chapter of success.
Aquis Farm has invested in the areas where capital was needed to ensure success at the highest level. The growth of Aquis Farm has been significant in the stallion market, expanding our roster from four stallions in 2016, to now standing eleven this season.
Aquis Farm has spent over AUD$50 million acquiring bloodstock at public auctions and privately since the farms inception into Australia in 2015. With an ever-increasing broodmare band of 186 mares and 165 horses in training, the future is bright for Aquis Farm in Australasia.
