Woodlands Stud is opening its gates to the harness racing industry for an open day on Sunday, 30th September.
It’s a rare opportunity for lovers of harness racing who wish to view the boutique breeding establishment and their imposing stallion roster.
Woodlands Stud is welcoming two new stallions, Downbytheseaside and What The Hill, to their already impressive stallion roster in the new season which makes it the perfect opportunity for potential breeders to inspect these stallions in the flesh.
Of course, it is also a chance to view champion stallion Bettor’s Delight at his Southern Hemisphere home. An opportunity that can’t be missed!
The other stallions being paraded on the day will be Sweet Lou, the handsome stallion with plenty of recent hype, gun sire American Ideal, who continues to stay amongst the top sires in Australasia and resident stallions Highview Tommy and Pegasus Spur.
“Woodlands Stud are thrilled to be able to give the industry a chance to come and see our top-class operation,” said Woodlands’ Stacey Markham.
“We see it as our way to thank the industry for their support over the years as well as giving visitors a chance to see some of the best stallions of our time.”
“We have made the date work in conjunction with Harness Racing New Zealand’s Conference and Annual Awards dinner which is being held at Alexandra Park the night before. We will put on a bus to and from Alexandra Park on Sunday for anyone who wishes to come out to the open day.”
There will be a breakfast and drinks provided and at the time of the open day there will also be an abundance of foals on the ground for viewing.
Giveaways and prizes will be drawn throughout the event for those in attendance, including a free service to one of the stallions.
