Established nursery in the South West Slopes region of NSW

Bowness Stud is a family owned and operated thoroughbred concern long established as a proven nursery for racing stock of the very highest quality. A very prominent bloodstock sale consignor, Bowness Stud also provides a comprehensive range of services, all overseen by the stud's much respected principal John North.

Major sales consignor

Bowness Stud has earned an enviable reputation as a bloodstock sales consignor, presenting drafts at the majority of auctions staged by the two major auction houses of Australia, namely Inglis and Magic Millions.

An example of the stud's professionalism was witnessed at the 2018 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale staged at the new Riverside Stables in Sydney where a colt by Starcraft sold for $340,000 after having been ‘pinhooked’ for only $30,000 as a weanling a matter of months beforehand.

Recent graduates

The 2017/18 domestic racing season has witnessed an unprecedented level of success for racetrack performers which can immediately associated with Bowness Stud. No better example is the triple Group 1 winning 3-year-old Trapeze Artist, as well as the Group 1 Queensland Oaks winner Youngstar. Both were born and raised at Bowness Stud before being prepared for sale on behalf of their respective breeders.

2018 Stallion Roster

Bowness Stud will again be home to the Group 1 winning racehorse and sire BON HOFFA for the 2018 southern hemisphere breeding season. The prolific Danzig-line stallion is standing at an advertised service fee of $7700 (inc. GST).
