About Us › the commitment

Plaintree is an Australian farm, and our focus is the Australian horse.

We are committed to the Australian racehorse, and we intend to play our part in making it the best it can be.

We stand stallions that have been selected to suit Australian conditions because our mission is to produce racehorses that can win on Australian racetracks.

We are committed to the best bloodlines, the best athletic type, and we are committed to horses with the kind of sound and correct conformation that are best suited to our demanding Australian conditions.

We are focused on the Australian client and the Australian market.

We believe that what happens on Australian racetracks is the single greatest influence on the decisions of Australian breeders and Australian buyers.

We have a racing history that extends for 150 years. We respect the achievements of our breeders, our bloodlines and the extraordinary benchmarks of performance they achieved.

My horses understand me tolerably well. I converse with them at least four hours every day. They are strangers to bridle or saddle; they live in great amity with me, and friendship to each other.
