Waikato Stud is a world-renowned, record-setting Thoroughbred nursery dedicated to the breeding, rearing and development of elite racehorses.
After 50 years of consolidation; building the broodmare band, stallion roster and nurturing the land, Waikato Stud is now amongst the world’s leading producers of Group One performers.
The synergy of bloodstock, environment and personnel are the three vital components or stars that have aligned, not by accident, but by design. We are proud to say that careful planning coupled with judicious selection and a hard-working team has given us today’s mantle of ‘leading stud.’
Waikato Stud has enjoyed a wonderful first 50 years, and the start of the second 50 also looks extremely bright with Mark Chittick now at the helm and a further generation of Chitticks following closely in his footsteps.
