we have a yearling for everyone
Durham Park was established in 2006 by Bruce Edward on an undulating, sheltered 400 acre property at Durham Lead, 30 minutes south east of Ballarat. DURHAM PARK is a commercial breeding operation, currently with 24 highly credentialled broodmares, including 12 mares imported from the US, and 5 from New Zealand.
All yearlings bred at DURHAM PARK are available for sale, either privately to established customers, or at auction. DURHAM PARK offers yearlings for everyone at reasonable prices. Ranging from some of the best imported bloodlines available in Australia through to good quality, reasonably priced local bloodlines, our aim is always to offer VALUE FOR MONEY.
DURHAM PARK also offers agistment, AI services, foaling down and yearling preparation, with supervision by highly experienced professional full time staff.
