AQUIS FARM was established in Canungra, Queensland in 2015 with amalgamation of the Wadham Park Racing Facility along with three surrounding large acre properties, creating Queensland’s finest integrated racing and breeding operation. No expense was spared in developing what is now Aquis Queensland, with a total investment on land and facilities exceeding A$30 million.
2017 saw Aquis embark on a new era, expanding into New South Wales in the Hunter Valley followed by the establishment of their Victorian base at Seymour in 2019.
The growth of Aquis has been significant in the stallion market, expanding the roster from four stallions in 2016, to a dynamic roster of 19 stallions across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Aquis has invested over A$50 million in bloodstock at public auctions and privately since the farms inception, with an ever-increasing broodmare band and horses in training.
Aquis is founded on the belief that success is achieved teamwork, innovation and supporting their clients and the industry at all levels. Aquis continues to focus on the Asian market, the golden future of the racing and breeding industry.
