Lindsay Park renamed Cornerstone Stud

Lindsay Park Stud co-owners Sam Hayes and Darren Thomas have announced the business will be renamed Cornerstone Stud.

“There is a great deal of history and esteem attached to the Lindsay Park name, but equally there was always an element of misunderstanding within the industry,” Hayes explained.  “The new name will help to generate some clarity around our business and the services we provide for our clients.”

Hayes and Thomas purchased the famous South Australian nursery from David Hayes in July 2008.

The renaming of the business follows the announcement that Champion stallion Hussonet is being relocated to the Barossa Valley in what has been regarded as a massive boost for the breeding industry in South Australia.

“We wanted a name that was strong and grounded.  When you breed racehorses you are at the start of something and we feel the same way about our business today.  In order to be successful you need to start with a solid foundation and Cornerstone reflects that ethos.

“Darren and I share a passion for breeding racehorses and we share a vision for where we want to take the business.  We are looking forward to building our own legacy based on the same underlying values of passion, persistence, vision and integrity.”

Cornerstone Stud will be represented at the Inglis Great Southern Sale next week in Melbourne along with the Magic Millions National weanling sale the following week in the Gold Coast where they will be showcasing Group 1 winner Reaan’s first crop of foals.
