Swettenham Stud is an internationally renowned full service stud farm that has been at the forefront of international thoroughbred racing and breeding for over 30 years having bred or raced over 200 Group 1 winners across 23 countries. Owned by Adam Sangster, Swettenham Stud is home to stallions from all corners of the globe, representing the world’s leading pedigrees and success in the world’s richest races, including the Melbourne Cup, the Irish Derby, the Queen Anne Stakes and the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe.
The stud encompasses 900 acres of improved pasture on well-drained loamy soil and is surrounded by some of the premier properties of the region, including Mitchelton Winery and Chateau Tahbilk, two vineyards to the immediate north, and Northwood Park
to the south. Prior to being purchased by Robert Sangster and Colin Hayes in 1995, the land housed a well-regarded cattle operation belonging to the Sleigh family. Since then it has been transformed into a beautiful and very functional stud facility, encompassing facilities for stallions, mares, foals and yearlings.
