What we do
At Thompson Creek Thoroughbreds we celebrate the thoroughbred through agistment, breeding and racing.
For agistment, we are proud of our first class spelling destination, Glentree South. Less than an hour and 45 minutes from Melbourne’s metropolitan racetracks, with lush pastures and secure fencing, and wedged amongst picturesque rolling hills, wineries and the surf coast, your prized possession will receive the royal treatment while staying with us.

For breeding, we will care for your broodmare, manage stallion bookings and foal her down as required. In addition, we are soon to offer broodmare syndications so you can share in the joy of the breeding process. [More below]
For racing, we offer syndications that focus on quality pedigrees and conformation that are given time to bring out their best under the careful eye of Australia’s best trainers. We aim to enjoy every step of the process from sales ring to winner’s circle. So far so good and we are only getting stronger. [More below]
For any of these services, please contact Derek (0412 205 142) or Sally (0438 642 004).
Thompson Creek Thoroughbreds - agistment, breeding, racing
Glentree South is a boutique agistment farm and thoroughbred nursery, offering professional services in a relaxed rural environment on the outskirts of Geelong and under an hour and forty five minutes from Melbourne’s major racecourses. We treat your horse like our own on this family-oriented farm. Racehorses are agisted in safe paddocks under careful supervision, their feeding regimes tailored to your requirements and guaranteed to comprise quality ingredients and supplements. We also care for broodmares and their foals, weanlings and older horses recuperating from injury or surgery.
Broodmare management. We agist your mare, handle stallion bookings and transfers to stud farms in the covering season, and foal her down here at Glentree South when necessary. We do the work and handle all the arrangements – you visit, inspect your mare and have a glass of local wine. Broodmare syndication. We put together ownership packages involving one or more mares, handle all the stud arrangements as above, market the offspring, report regularly to syndicate members, provide annual accounts and distribute income.
Racehorse syndication. We purchase yearlings at the major sales for family, friends and business associates and extend an invitation to our clients to join us in racehorse ownership. Our horses are trained in the main at Caulfield. Each syndicate has 10 to 20 members, all with their names in the race book. Regular updates are provided, along with a newsletter, and we host social get-togethers to enhance the ownership experience.
