Success & Highlights

To date Hollylodge has bred and raised 44 winning racehorses from our own mares, we have bred country winners, city winners and a multiple stakes placed city winning horses from our farm as well as 2 x 2 year old Vobis Gold winning home breds in 2014 and 2016.

From our very first mare who was a give away, we bred a 7 time winner and a city winner/placegetter in ZEPHYR BEAT.

We foaled down and cared for the dual Group 1 winner in LITTORIO in his first few months of life as well as Gr 1 winner MAY'S DREAM, VAIN QUEEN, TUSCAN FIRE, TUSCANY VIEW and many more.

Have also looked after and foaled down the wonderful Gr 1 race mare SHE’S ARCHIE and several other top racemares.

We were honoured to stand one of Japans leading sires in JUNGLE POCKET for his only season in Australia in 2007.

We were also honoured to have one of the most gutsy racehorses, winner of 6 Group 1 and 8 Group 2 races stand at our stud for many years in DURBRIDGE.

In 2011 Daniel took out the Tabcorp Racing Victoria Thoroughbred Employee of the year, winning his section and then the overall 5 sections. This award was given for his outstanding contribution to our business of breeding, managing the hands on side of the stud, teaching work experience students, loving his work, racing horses, handling stallions, client liaison, helping vets, a real role model to all young people in the industry at an age of 23 at the time of his award and showing that hard work does not go unnoticed or unappreciated in this industry.

Our highlight in 2014 was having our own home bred Al's Kitchen win as a 2 year old at Wangaratta by 4 and a quarter lengths a Vobis Gold race then head straight to Flemington on a Saturday and just get beaten by a head down the straight. Al has now gone on to Hong Kong where he has won racing as Haymaker.

On Jan 1st 2016 our home bred filly Want To Rock made her debut down the straight at Flemington winning over 1000 m in a Super Vobis/Vobis gold race. She then went on to win as a 3 year old at Bendigo beating some very good stakes horses home.

In 2016 Hollylodge prepared and sold the highest priced filly on record at the Inglis Prem sale, a Written Tycoon filly who sold for $130,000.00.

In 2020 the Vobis Showdown at Caulfield was won by KHOEKHOE by Turrfontein x Walvis Bay NZ the colt was foaled down, weaned and prepped by Hollylodge at Avenel. Bred by Liverpool Farm Susan Keating a long time client of Hollylodge.
