The final foal has dropped and the foaling lights have been turned off for another year. There is no time for rest however and the stables have all been freshly painted and filled with new bedding for our Magic Millions yearlings which have commenced their prep.

Spring is a busy time for everyone, particularly the trainers who have just had their marathon Spring Racing Carnival. Congratulations to all the victorious winners and placegetters and those who even just featured in a major race over the Carnival. What an achievement to have a runner in a group of listed race. One of our favourite stories of the carnival was the shock win by Lasqueti Spirit in the VRC Oaks. It'd be a stretch to find an equine connection to this fantastic filly here on the farm but we are ecstatic for owners Frank and Chris Cook who are clients of the farm and fantastic contributors to the industry. What a thrill for them.

One horse that was born, raised and sold through the Torryburn Stud 2012 Inglis Premier yearling sale draft is G2 VRC Matriarch Stakes winner Jessy Belle. The Hayes Dabernig team showed some sassy timing in the preparation of the 5 year old mare to score her first black type win in style. Well done to all the connections.

Congratulations must also go to our good clients and friends Alan and Lisa Osburg on the win by their Torryburn born and raised Dixie Blossoms, winner of the G3 ATC Angst Stakes followed up by a gallant finish for fourth in the G1 VRC Myer Classic. Dixie has come home to Torryburn for her post-Spring break.

And the ever reliable Terravista turned out for a sole Flemington carnival appearance to carry the Torryburn brand over the line for second in the Mumm Stakes (L) - his prizemoney now well over the $2 Million mark. What a great effort from Joe Pride and his now 7 year old gelding.

Spring has also seen the finalisation of the development of our new spelling farm and we are delighted with the finished product. Apart from the world class equine facilities, Pam Cornish has been busy with designing the placement of hundreds of trees which we have planted on the new farm. A gorgeous laneway of white crepe myrtles along the main driveway will be an incredible sight once established and we have also planted many new gum trees to compliment the hundred year old shade gums on this parcel of virgin land which has never previously been grazed by livestock.

Whilst we can fully irrigate the new spelling farm, we wouldn't say no to a good drenching of rain to fill up the new dams which will just be the icing on the cake. Its an exciting time for the farm and the team.
