With the majority of horses purchased to race in Singapore by the stable either being yearlings or 2 year old ready to race horses, there is always going to be an amount of time needed to have horses both educated and mature enough prior to their importation into Singapore. Being based in Singapore it’s critical to have the right people looking after our clients valuable racing prospects, both in terms of their expertise and trust.
Since setting up in Singapore nearly 10 years ago Cliff Brown Racing has been very fortunate to be able to agist our Australian purchases at Willaroon Thoroughbred Agistment in Victoria. Willaroon Thoroughbred Agistment is located about an hour from Melbourne along the Hume Highway, and is owned and operated by Sally Watkins. Sally has been a friend of Cliff’s for many years and has a very select clientele. Her picturesque property is never over stocked, and her attention to the care and well being of horses under her care is second to none.
Individual care expertise and attention set Willaroon apart from most Agistment operations.
The list of horses bound for Singapore that have graced the paddocks of Willaroon and been reared and cared for by Sally and her team include the mighty Zac Spirit, Groenewegen, Zac Influence, Merchant, and Gold Run to name just a few. Current youngsters Don De La Vega, Spiffing’s Bridge, Cracking Tottie, Zac Kasa, Harveywallbanger, Lohnro Gold and Roughead all spent time at Willaroon before being shipped to Singapore
We thank Sally for her continued professionalism and guidance, and fingers crossed the Ready to Race purchases residing there now may include the next Singapore champion.
