With over 42 years of experience, Blue Gum Farm is Victoria’s longest-running family-owned stud.
Nestled in a fertile valley at the foot of the Strathbogie Ranges, the farm was carefully chosen for its ideal soil composition, favourable climate, and proximity to essential equine services. Blue Gum Farm covers 800 acres and has been meticulously designed and developed with the thoroughbred in mind.
Over the years, the farm has been home to champion successful stallions such as Encosta De Lago, Noalcoholic, Rubiton, Umatilla, and Rancho Ruler. These stallions have sired numerous racetrack stars, including Alinghi, Umrum, and Fontiton.
The farm’s commitment to breeding excellence is evident in its graduates, which have achieved remarkable success on the racetrack. Notable recent stakes winners include Behemoth, Bruckner, Vinland, Jukebox, Semillion, and Crosswinds. Blue Gum Farm takes pride in consistently producing top-quality horses with a proven track record of performance.
The farm provides a nurturing and supportive environment for its equine residents. The staff consists of dedicated professionals who are passionate about caring for thoroughbreds. They ensure that every horse receives exceptional care and attention on a daily basis.
Blue Gum Farm’s commitment to welfare extends to its meticulously maintained facilities, which include carefully cultivated pastures, quality fencing, and stables designed to meet the specific needs of each horse.
Blue Gum Farm has an impressive track record as a leading vendor at the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale. In the past eight years alone, the farm has been the leading vendor four times, the second leading vendor three times, and the third leading vendor once.
This consistent success at one of the industry’s most prestigious sales events highlights Blue Gum Farm’s reputation for producing high-quality yearlings.
The farm’s graduates have gone on to achieve remarkable results on the racetrack, with notable victories in stakes races. Nanagui, trained by Peter Moody, is a recent example of a Blue Gum Farm graduate who triumphed in the Cap D’Antibes (Listed, 1100m) at Flemington.
