bigstar Oakland Park Stud – Where Champions Are Bred

Our goal at Oakland Park Stud is to breed racehorses capable of winning at Black Type level. Everything we do is meticulously planned around achieving this goal. Nothing is left to chance.

We would like to think our record to date shows our efforts are working, having bred Australia’s fighting tiger, Northerly – Australian Horse of the Year, two-time winner of the Cox Plate, Caulfield Cup, two Australian Cups and Railway Stakes.

Our other stars include Marasco (Makybe Diva Stakes), Shirazamatazz (WA Derby), Covertly (Railway Stakes) and Roman Time (Karrakatta Plate and Sires Produce Stakes. Other Black Type gallopers include Grand Nirvana, Paris Petard, Jestatune, All Friared Up, and our latest Group 1 winner Ihtsahymn.

Breeding winning thoroughbreds is what we have been doing for 20 years. So when you go to the Sales and buy a yearling with the XX5 brand, you can be assured we have done what we can to get you into the winner’s circle.

cross Northerly


All breeders set out to breed sound and competitive racehorses, with the dream of maybe one day breeding a horse worthy of being called a Champion.

For Oakland Park Stud, that dream came true – we were blessed to have bred Northerly. As history now records, Northerly, or as we affectionately call him “Norton”, was probably the most unlikely candidate to rise to the level he did. He was born without a pulse. His legs were not correct, and wasn’t that flash to look at. However, as we were to find out – he had that elusive X factor. That special something that only very few equine athletes throughout history have possessed.
