Learning curve at Limerick Park

South-west horseman Graham Yuill is all set for another busy season breaking in yearlings from the Perth Magic Millions.

Yuill, his wife Belinda and children Rhys and Kyra, have developed a successful pre- training and agistment business in prime horse country at Limerick Park.

“We’re on 150 acres and we’re ready for the next intake from the Magic Millions,” Yuill said.  “There’s room to educate up to 30 young ones here and we also have a few of our own in training.”

The stable’s best galloper in recent years has been Encosta de Lago stallion Maschino.  He was a Group 3 winner of the R J Peters Stakes at Ascot before taking up stud duties at Alwyn Park last year.

Kyra Yuill has carved out a successful career of her own in the saddle and the highlight to date was her 2011 Perth Cup triumph on Western Jewel for trainer Grant Williams and owner Bob Peters.

The Yuills also have several foals on the ground including a Pluck – Coronation Crown filly and a Murtajill – Joy In Winning colt.  The mares were bought at the 2013 Gold Coast Magic Millions National Sale and those foals will be offered at the 2015 Perth Magic Millions.
