Welcome to Ken King Thoroughbreds: Racehorse Ownership in Melbourne, Spring Racing

Australia’s Premier Racehorse Ownership Experience

There’s no other sound in the world like the thunderous rumble heard trackside. Our love of everything that encapsulates the sport of kings is truly unmatched. From this unbridled passion has bloomed our passion for rearing and racing great equine examples at our thoroughbred stud just outside Melbourne. Horse racing ownership has never been this straightforward.

At Ken King Thoroughbreds, our aim is simple – that is to ensure you have an enjoyable and successful ownership experience. We offer racehorse partnerships in Melbourne as well as all other parts of Australia.

Ken King's boutique breeding operations bats well above it's size and from his small band of quality broodmares has produced many Stakes quality horses. His stud has finished in the top 10 Breeders Championship over the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival in the past few years. You know when you buy a racehorse with Ken that you increase your chances of getting a horse that can run and compete at the highest little for not a lot of money.

Over the past 10 years, our horses have achieved good consistent success - 17.2% strike rate 8% of individual winners black type and have returned over $11m to our owners.

We have had some luck and are grateful that we have been able to select and breed some polished, black type performers such as G1 winners BON AURUM, SET SQUARE, BON HOFFA and RINKY DINK and stakes winners LATE CHARGE, HELIDECK, WILDLY, SKALATO, ARTIC COMMAND, Top Sight, Its Gulleygold and Bronc.

Our long term involvement and success in the thoroughbred industry as a breeder, owner, and purchaser of yearlings, mares and weanlings has enabled us to develop and enhance our decision-making skills to optimise the chance of race day success. Whether you’re in Melbourne or any other part of Australia, there really is no better place to join a racing partnership.
