12342-1024x682On the eve of what was widely tipped to be his career defining achievement, FIGHTING SUN has been retired to stand at Eliza Park International. To paraphrase the song lyrics, the Golden Slipper is the chance of a lifetime in a lifetime of chance and according to those in the know, he had a better chance than most. This was some racehorse. Gai Waterhouse, a 5-time winner and ‘reigning’ Golden Slipper trainer, had long flagged Fighting Sun as ‘my Slipper horse’ and promise became perform...
bells-bell-chiming It’s been a big few weeks for Ruth Frenzel’s Valleyview, a boutique farm now based at Clarkefield in Victoria. Only breeding a handful of horses each year, the descendants of Valleyview’s ‘foundation’ mare, Sashimi Express have lobbed with a pair of city winners in the past fortnight: Must Be Love (by Shinzig from Lady Gwendyln by Val Royal) winning at Launceston on 29 January, while Bel Esprit mare, Chiming - a half sister to Lady Gwendlyn - won comfortably over 1400m at Launceston...
valid-contract-672442 Magnus mare, Valid Contract, became her sire’s 58th individual winner for the season with a cracking effort over 1300m at Sandown on Wednesday.

Out of the stakes winning Take Your Partner mare, Prenuptial, Valid Contract is closely related to Hong Kong G1 winner, Winning Partners and Group winner Moonah Brooke and hails from the family of Marscay...
Secret-Liberty_grid Another big day at the office for Statue of Liberty with a resounding double at Pakenham on Friday. In a running deuce, Robbie Laing’s New York Rain and then Matt Laurie’s Secret Liberty were both very impressive in scoring over their 1008m assignments. Robbie, in particular, was fairly effusive about the prospects for his grey filly, saying that she was right up to city class following her all the way victory in smartish time. It was the second win from four outings for New York Rain w...

The Future

Although Eliza Park International has gained a reputation for its professionalism, diversity of services, stallions, facilities and quality of racehorses produced at its farms, we are not about to rest on our laurels.

Eliza Park International has every intention of living up to its name by taking its brand to the global stage.
