Ken King Thoroughbreds | Racehorse Ownership in Melbourne

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. There is no place better to race than Melbourne Victoria which has a magnificent Spring Racing Carnival which is the envy of racing purists in Australia and around the world.

Ken King Thoroughbreds is a breeding and racing enterprise. We breed horses to race because we love the thrill of racing and the comradery we share with our fellow owners who now have become our good friends.

Our aim is simple – that is to ensure you have an enjoyable ownership experience by racing horses that have race day success.

We have had good success along the way breeding and racing many quality black type performers. Over the past 15 years, our horses have achieved good consistent success - 17.0% strike rate 8% of individual winners black type and have returned over $12.5m to fellow owners.

Ken King's boutique breeding operations bats well above its size and from his small band of quality broodmares has produced many Stakes quality horses including the likes of G1 winners BON AURUM, SET SQUARE, BON HOFFA and RINKY DINK and Stakes winners BONS AWAY, LATE CHARGE, HELIDECK, WILDLY, SKALATO and ARTIC COMMAND.

Our 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 from or with us that you increase your chances of getting a horse that can run and compete at the highest level at a reasonable price.

Our long term involvement and success in the thoroughbred industry as a multiple G1 breeder and multiple G1 owner has meant that we have developed long term lasting relationships with our fellow owners. Whether you’re in Melbourne or any other part of Australia, there really is no better place to join a breeding and racing team.

At our stud in Euroa just two hours outside of Melbourne, we’ll rear your racehorse up to be Australia’s next champion – Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, here we come!
