Thompson Creek Thoroughbreds had a busy Thursday last week with five foals born on the property in one day. The new nursery was busy from dusk to dawn with three high quality fillies and two colts entering the world.

And while it was a particularly busy day, it continues a stellar start to the breeding ranks for Victoria’s newest broodmare farm with more than 50 broodmares booked for this breeding season.

Thompson Creek’s property, Glentree South at Modewarre, just outside of Geelong, is a hive of activity.

“It has been an extraordinary response from breeders to our broodmare service announcement in June. We thought a local, family operation may appeal and we are so glad that it has,” said Thompson Creek’s, Sally Ballantine.

With almost 20 foals born on the property so far this season, owners are seeing the high service levels of the new operation.

“We are so delighted with the quality of broodmare our clients have entrusted to us. So far on the farm we have had foals by leading sires such as Dundeel, Impending, Dissident, Fiorente and many more,”said Sally.

“We are really focussed on our clients receiving up-to date communications on each stage of the journey, and this includes photo and video updates. We provide competitive pricing and services such as stud transfers, for instance, on a fixed price basis. As breeders, we know avoiding hidden surprises is important.”

“We have mares heading to all leading Victorian studs and have managed Hunter Valley covers for some of our mares.”

Not content with their successful start, Sally was keen to point out further capacity on the property, “This is the start we wanted to make but it is only a start. We are confident in the quality of the farm, our team and processes in place.”

“We continue to have capacity and welcome all breeders who are still deciding where to place their mares for the current season and beyond. They will be in good hands with Thompson Creek.”
