For nearly 5 years Mark Alati, Marquee Stud proprietor, had been on the lookout for a thoroughbred property where he could breed and raise top line racehorses. When the property was first inspected, then known as Kulani Park, Mark firmly believed this was the place he had been waiting for, with great facilities and good undulating land that has the potential to grow out young horses to become strong boned, tough horses for the racetrack.
Set in an outstanding location, Marquee Stud is within easy reach of the Hunter Valley thoroughbred studs, situated in the renowned Willow Tree area. Just 12 kilometres from the New England Highway via sealed roads, an easy 66 kilometres to Scone and a mere 28 kilometres to Murrurundi, Marquee Stud is easily accessible.
Marquee has been purpose built for thoroughbreds with the safety of horses the number one priority and currently has 800 acres developed of high quality fencing and facilities to take care of your valuable investment. The aim is to continue to develop this outstanding property into a bona fide commercial thoroubred farm offering a full range of services including agistment, walking out mares, foaling down and sales preparation with an experienced team to ensure your horses have the best care possible.
Marquee Stud is the ideal place to raise strong, athletic, healthy and well conformed individuals. With a staff that not only
possess immense knowledge and experience in all aspects of the thoroughbred industry, but also a passion and genuine love for the individual animals, you can be assured that your horse is in the best of thoroughbred care facilities. Our aim is to provide honest and well informed advice to all of our clients and help them not only enjoy their breeding and racing experience but also enable it to be as financially rewarding as possible. We pride ourselves on honesty and integrity and care as much about our clients as we do about the horses that they own.
We are able to offer our clients assistance in all aspects of their bloodstock portfolios. This includes helping with stallion and sale choices, bloodstock purchases and providing our clients with the opportunity to take advantage of discounts generally reserved for commercial studs. Our wish is to be involved in a horse’s life from conception through foaling, yearling preparation, sales, racing, spelling and even retirement. The property is open to all visitors at all times.
This is an industry where you never stop learning and we will continue to move forward in all that we can, taking advantage of all modern techniques available to us which keep us at the forefront of the thoroughbred industry. Thoroughbred race horses are a majestic and magnificent animal, and we sincerely hope, here at Marquee Stud, that you will allow us to play a small part in your racing and breeding experience.
