Cambridge Stud Sold

Sir Patrick Hogan with Cambridge stallion Tavistock | Cambridge Stud

Sir Patrick and Lady Justine Hogan have sold their New Zealand-based Cambridge Stud, once home to legendary sires Sir Tristram (Ire) and his son Zabeel (NZ), to Brendan and Jo Lindsay of Auckland, the stud announced early Wednesday. The Lindsays, who operate as Lindsay Racing and own Lindsay Farm in Karaka, will take control of Cambridge Stud in April 2018.

“Cambridge Stud has been our lives for over four decades,” said Sir Patrick. “We have nurtured it, been its guardians and have proudly seen it evolve into the globally respected operation it is today. As we pass the ownership baton on, we know that Cambridge Stud could not be in better hands. Everyone knows that Brendan and Jo Lindsay are deeply passionate about both our industry and our country, and Cambridge Stud certainly holds a unique place in both.”

The stud currently is home to four stallions, led by Classic sire Tavistock (NZ) (Montjeu {Ire}). Established sire Keeper (Aus) (Danehill), young sire Burgundy (NZ) (Redoute's Choice {Aus}) and shuttler Power (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}) complete the quartet.

Regarding his retirement, Hogan said, “In answer to the undoubted question of my retirement–the answer is a firm no, that is not on my agenda. We will have our 2018 Karaka draft, the final one under our auspices, to prepare. After that I have plenty of racing and breeding interests to keep me firmly involved in the industry–an industry I will be fully immersed in until the day I die.”

The Lindsays have already enjoyed Group 1 success as owners with Marky Mark (Aus) (Makfi {GB}) and Griante (Aus) (Good Journey) and are looking forward to adding to Cambridge Stud's accomplishments.

“Sir Patrick, a member of both the Australian and New Zealand Halls of Fame, is the undisputed king of the New Zealand thoroughbred industry,” said the Lindsays in a statement. “There are no parallels to what he and Lady Hogan have achieved including 31 years as the national sale's leading vendor. No matter where you travel in the world, the Cambridge Stud name is synonymous not only with New Zealand but with unequalled Group 1 excellence. Eight Melbourne Cups, four Cox Plates, three Caulfield Cups and the Golden Slipper have been associated with the stud. We will honour the legacy that Sir Patrick and Lady Hogan have entrusted us with. We feel both proud and privileged to have the opportunity of helping to write exciting new chapters to the Cambridge Stud success story.”
