Riverdene Stud prides itself in the comprehensive service it provides to mare and racehorse owners throughout south-east Australia. It is the ideal farm for the broodmare owner looking to prosper from the vibrant weanling and yearling auction market, the stud earning an enviable reputation for its sale-preparation practises. Conversely, broodmare owners looking to breed their own racing stock will also find Riverdene stud a highly suitable establishment to grow out their stock in light of the experienced and expert horse carers constantly in attendance.
Stud is located
midway between Sydney and
Melbourne. The Wagga Wagga-based property can be reached
in under four hours from
Warwick Farm racecourse,
found on the south-western
tip of Sydney, and just
over four hours from Moonee
Valley, the most northern
metropolitan racing circuit
of Melbourne. It is ideally located to walk mares into stallions standing on the rosters of nearby Kooringal and Bowness studs, as well as most of the studs in Victoria's Nagambie-Euroa region.
Riverdene Stud charges compare favourably with any other thoroughbred breeding operation in Australia when you consider the quality of horse care that is provided. Experienced staff provide a 24-7 service that is hard to find anywhere else in the country.
Riverdene Stud is in the privileged position of having very experienced and long standing staff. Amanda Elliott, the manager, has been an employee at the stud for 18 years and is ably supported by assistant manager Kate Luther, who has worked for Riverdene for eight years. This core of experienced, long standing management provides very valuable hands-on care to the horses on the farm.
