A major international investor in the Victorian breeding industry, Yulong Investments, has announced a significant expansion of its management team this week.
Yulong Investment Group, the parent of Yulong Investments (Australia) Pty Ltd is pleased to announce the formation of an executive management team to head its rapidly expanding global equine operations.
Chaired by Mr Zhang Yue Sheng himself, the appointment of Mr Eric Koh as Chief Executive Officer and Mr Sam Fairgray as Chief Operating Officer to the Group comes perfectly timed as Yulong Australia embarks on its next phase of investments in the industry.
“Our Australian operations are well looked after by highly experienced and knowledgeable Rick and Christie Woodard (formerly of Yallambee Stud). Their presence within the Group adds great strength to the team as we grow and expand,” the Yu Long Group said.
“Of well-bred racing and breeding horses, farm and land acquisitions, setting up of racecourses in China, the next phase of expansion will see Yulong foster deeper presence in the Australian horse industry and other horse racing and/or breeding countries the likes of New Zealand, Ireland, UK and Singapore, among others.
“The Group is currently in talks with several well qualified candidates and will continue to look out for more equine professionals to add to our team. This will ensure a well rounded and highly qualified team to support and propel the Group to the next level within the equine industry.”
Yu Long Part will offer its historic, first ever homegrown yearling draft at this year’s Inglis Premier Sale.
The high quality offering of yearlings includes a Not A Single Doubt filly which is a sister to dual Group 1 winner Extreme Choice and an Execeed and Excel colt which is a sibling to Group 3 winner & Group 1 placed Allergic.
Full details of the draft being prepared by the Woodards and the Yu Long Park team are on the Inglis sale page.
