Victoria’s oldest commercial horse stud is proud to announce the appointment of Keri Gore to the position of Stud Manager.
Keri was born and bred on Horse Studs and arrives from his long-standing position of Stallion Manager at Sir Patrick Hogan’s iconic Cambridge Stud, where he handled the likes of Zabeel and Tavistock.
Keri is eager for life at Chatswood.
“I have always wanted to work in Australia and in particular, Victoria. The opportunity to join the Willis family and the rest of the team at Chatswood with a quality stallion roster was too good to refuse,” he said.
“Over the last two decades I’ve spent seventeen years at Cambridge Stud, working in the departments of broodmares, foaling, Stallion Management and at Waikato Stud as Yearling Manager.
“Working at these two world class operations has grown my knowledge into the best practices in the thoroughbred industry.
“I think of Chatswood Stud as Victoria’s secret. This is a beautiful farm with a great set up and a proud record of producing proper race horses.
“There is no reason we can’t produce more Champions from this farm”.
Studmaster Greg Willis said,
“We feel very fortunate to secure a horseman like Keri Gore. Since our first meeting with Keri we’ve been overwhelmed by his knowledge and work ethic.
“Myself and the rest of the staff are excited to learn from Keri and I am very confident in the direction Chatswood Stud is heading”.
Keri would like to welcome clients with any questions to contact him directly on 0418 645 115.
Chatswood Stud is standing four stallions this year including one of Australia’s leading 3rd Season Sires Reward for Effort, Anacheeva and new stud sire All American, the sire of Group 1 star Yankee Rose.
They are also standing first season sire Ajaya (GB), an exciting Group 2 winning son of Invincible Spirit.
