Divine Madonna breaks Magic Millions sales record

Star South Australian mare sells for $2.7 million

On Monday 2 June, Darley Australia was the successful bidder for Divine Madonna, the highlight of the Magic Millions Gold Coast National Broodmare Sale. This was the perfect finale to Divine Madonna's racing career, in which she won four Group 1 races and over $2 million in prize money.

Another Group 1 winner for Kirkliston Stud

Shinzig wins the CF Orr Stakes!

We are delighted that our newest stallion-share purchase, Shinzig (sire Danehill, dam Shindig, dam sire Straight Strike), who is to stand at Eliza Park later this year, won the CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield on 9 February. He ran a very strong race, three wide throughout, and got up in the very last stride to win by a nose from Niconero and Rubiscent.

Kirkliston at Balhannah for sale

Kirkliston Stud began in 2004 at a beautiful property called Kirkliston, on Camac Road at Balhannah. However, we rapidly realised that Kirkliston was too small, so in 2005 we purchased Piney Ridge, on Piney Ridge Road at Nairne. Piney Ridge is much bigger and has much better infrastructure, including a 17-stall stable complex, a round yard, 10 day paddocks, and 3 day yards. We are currently installing an 8-horse walking machine.

Now we are reluctantly selling the original Kirkliston. It has a beautiful old sandstone villa, sandstone and brick stables, a dressage arena, spectacular terraced gardens, and a massive botanic garden filled with beautiful deciduous trees that complement the surrounding gum trees. We hope it will be purchased by someone who loves it as much as we do. For further information, see the Domain advertisement.
