Twenty Two Years

Our company was established in 1997 and has forged successful partnerships with some of Australia’s best trainers. Initially, we worked exclusively with Bill Mitchell. Upon his retirement, in 2005, we split the horses between David Hayes and Kris Lees.

Today, our business has greatly expanded from those days and we now have horses trained in five states.

Our trainers are carefully selected and are top class; names both well known and respected:

Kris Lees, Patrick Payne, John Thompson, Adam Trinder, Tony Gollan, Michelle Payne and Dan Morton.

Testimonials

Norm Rance, Client since 2006. "Communication is an important part of the industry and in this area Joe O’Neill excels. I have been kept informed of the progress of my horses on a daily basis either by email or phone and Joe is always there to answer the phone if I need to contact him."

Peter Selleck, Client since 2002. "It has been a wonderful way to become involved as a hobby owner. It was hard not to be excited when my horse, Too Many Reds, ran on Melbourne Cup day with Glen Boss aboard. If he'd won, there would have been way too many. I built and I maintain this site. Joe O'Neill is as good a syndicator as you will find and is a delight to work with."

01/11/19 We are ready for Cup week with Rubisaki heading the charge at Flemington on Thursday. Good luck to Dunbrody Power, Everard, Fituese and Golden Script as well.

25/10/19 Great return from Serriano for Kris Lees at Scone storming home to finish just behind the place getters. Excellent training performance.

15/10/19 Fituese bolted in today at Newcastle for John Thompson. She looks a good filly and has a big future. Congratulations to all concerned.

14/10/19 We had several of our babies jump out at Kyneton and Newcastle today. These are by Super One, Shooting To Win and Sizzling.

13/10/19 Fituese set to make her debut on Tuesday at Newcastle for John Thompson. She won a trial at Kembla by 7 lengths leading into this race.

25/09/19 Almerheri was far too good for her opposition at Canterbury yesterday and has won three of her past seven runs in Sydney. Very progressive mare.
