Have Horse ...... Will Travel

Since we announced one of our main trainers - Mitch Beer, was relocating to Albury, we have had a number of owners give us their feedback. The almost unanimous verdict was one of complete support. One of the major discussion points with Mitch prior to his making his decision was on his appetite to travel with his horses back to the metropolitan areas if the horse was good enough and the right race came up on the calendar. Based on his agreement, Clanbrooke had no problem with the move.

Fast forward to today. Mitch is off to Rosehill with one of his 3YO fillies whilst having a runner at Flemington as well. Later in the week, Mitch and Clanbrooke will have a runner at Wagga as well as probable trials at Benalla. That is covering ground with his staff and we believe is testament to his agreement to travel anywhere if the right races are there. 

The situation with Mitch is no different to that of a number of our trainers. Craig Widdison who trains at Wodanga, only 5 kilometres away, regularly travels long distances to races and only this month was presented with the RVL Colin Alderson Trainers Rising Star Award. We also have Steve Pateman at Geelong and Archie Alexander at Ballarat in rural areas and of course, no-one would dispute that Darren Weir's training establishments at Ballarat, Warrnambool and Maldon have hindered racecourse success.

Trainer Updates for the Spring

Springtime in Melbourne is one of the most exciting Sporting seasons one could envisage. Our life obviously centres around the incomparable Melbourne Cup Carnival which stretches from Memsie Stakes Day thorough to the Sandown Classic. But supporting the race bonanza, the AFL Final series kicks into gear and straight after, the Cricket season beckons. How good is all this?

The Spring of 2018 has brought some changes to the Clanbrooke line-up of Trainers. The major change is the transfer from Mornington to Albury on a full-time basis of Mitch Beer. Mitch tested the waters over the Winter and has taken the decision that the country air is more likely to take him to the next level of his profession. Clanbrooke is happy to support Mitch and we don't forsee any problem with our horses moving to the border. Mitch has already shown an aptitude for travel and this is a major key to us supporting the move.

The last six months have seen Clanbrooke move horses into the stables of  heavyweight trainers David Hayes and Tony McEvoy. We see this move as a strategy for some owners to spread their ownership into some of the more established stables. We know we pay a premium for this in our Training fees but it also gives Clanbrooke a more rounded offering. We will be having a Bus Tour in the near future to Lindsay Park where all our owners can marvel at what David has formulated and ultimately built.

In addition, we have horses now at Caulfield with Henry Dwyer and at Ballarat with Archie Alexander. All these inclusions join our stalwart group of horsepeople - Pat Carey at Mornington, Cindy Alderson at Cranbourne, Luke Oliver at Romsey and Craig Widdison at Wodonga. Hopefully we now have a great selection of Trainers to suit everyone.

All our Trainers have horses available at completely varying price levels so contact us if you are looking for a horse with one of these first-class Trainers.

Mitch Beer tests out Albury

As winter hits this Friday June 1 - MBR has decided to set up a 'winter' stable in Albury over the next 3 months.
As most of us are fully aware, it can get pretty wet around the Mornington Peninsula over the winter so Mitch thought it would be a good idea to have a handful of horses based at Albury for dryer tracks both at the races and at track work and of course a change is as good as a holiday.


If one of your horses is moved to Albury over the winter months you will be informed by Mitch direct or through the office with Brent Crawford.
This is an educated experiment for the stable as the Albury track has been fully relaid over the last couple of years and would now rate as one of the best country tracks in Vic/NSW.


With two months to go in the current season, MBH is hoping to finish off the season with a bang. It has been a good season to date with 14 winners for the season, 10 coming from the 1st February since Mitch went out on his own.

Written Tycoon x Delegance Filly sells at Premier 

The Clanbrooke Racing Delegance Breeding Syndicate had a great day yesterday at the Inglis Premier Sale. The Written Tycoon filly from Delegance sold for $115,000, well above our reserve. The purchaser was young-gun Ballarat trainer Archie Alexander and was selected for Archie by world renowned Bloodstock Agent John McKeever who said he thought the horse was a jump and run proposition. Thrilled that the filly will remain in Victoria.

We are currently out at the Sales so watch this space for some exciting new youngsters to join the Clanbrooke team.
