A New Era for Cambridge Stud

Cambridge Stud enters an exciting new phase today with Brendan and Jo Lindsay officially taking over as owners of the iconic thoroughbred nursery.

World-renowned for the champion stallions Sir Tristram and his son Zabeel, the nursery has forged an outstanding record as a breeding powerhouse under the direction of Sir Patrick and Justine Lady Hogan.

Through the years, stallions on the Cambridge Stud roster have sired 134 individual Group One winners.

The Lindsays have been actively involved in the thoroughbred industry for many years, with recent Group One winners including champion two-year-old Marky Mark and the Galaxy (1100m) winner Griante.

“Our decision to buy Cambridge Stud underlines our commitment to New Zealand and its thoroughbred industry and our shared desire for the iconic brand to remain in New Zealand,” Jo Lindsay said.

While respectful of its proud history, they have announced future developments.

“Cambridge will undergo a major refurbishment over the next three years, including the upgrade of the recently acquired, adjoining Thorpe property, to cater for our expanding stallion roster,” Brendan Lindsay said.

“We will continue to operate Cambridge as a premier stallion and broodmare operation, doing what the stud has done best for 40 years, while our Karaka farm will be integrated with the stud, carrying mares and foals and continuing to support the racing operation.”

On-farm staff remain largely unchanged under the leadership of stud manager Marcus Corban and they will be joined by chief executive Henry Plumptre, until recently head of Godolphin in Australia, locally-born Scott Calder as head of sales and nominations with Angelique Bridson in charge of marketing.

“We are all very excited to be part of something as special as Cambridge Stud,” Plumptre said.

“It is a privilege to be involved with an industry icon and we look forward to creating something that complements the brand as it is now, but sets the tone for the next 50 years.

“The enthusiasm and energy shown by Brendan and Jo already is infectious and we are all looking forward to the next few years with the challenges they will bring. Cambridge and the farm at Karaka carry wonderful staff and I am very confident that they will rise to the occasion.”

In 2018, Cambridge Stud will stand the champion sire Tavistock; Burgundy, the sire of this season's New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year Dijon Bleu; and the recently relocated Highly Recommended. Stud fees will be announced within the next two weeks. – NZ Racing Desk.
