Be part of our International horses for your chance to win in the Melbourne Cup!
Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock offers our clients the opportunity to race horses in Group races in Australia and worldwide. Racing with us on an international basis gives everyone the opportunity to get involved in very serious horses that travel to different countries and compete at the highest level.
In 2016 we obtained shares in Irish galloper, Heartbreak City trained by Tony Martin and went within a head of winning the 2016 Emirates Melbourne Cup, finishing 2nd with star jockey, Joao Moreira riding. It was breath-taking stuff, the closest we have been to collecting racing's holy grail.
Heartbreak City has returned back to Ireland where he will be prepared with meetings at Dubai and Ascot on the radar for his owners en route to another Melbourne Cup tilt in 2017.
In February 2014, we purchased a controlling interest in European Group One winner Seismos to contest the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups that Spring. Seismos won at Neuss in Germany at his first start for Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock and competed on Dubai World Cup night for his new and current owners, with trainer Andreas Wohler in Germany.
Our previous international galloper Dandino travelled to the United States in August of last year to win the 2013 American St Leger at Arlington in Chicago, just as Jakkalberry did the year before. Dandino then travelled to Australia to finish runner-up in the $2.5 Million Group 1 Caulfield Cup behind Fawkner at Caulfield, before finishing a gallant 5th in the 2013 Melbourne Cup behind Fiorente.
On returning to Melbourne for the 2014 Spring carnival, unfortunately Dandino broke down with an suspensory ligament injury and retirement loomed.
It was decided that he stay in Australia, and was sent to stud in the Spring of 2016.
While he missed running in both the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups, he did claim the Group 3 Queens Cup on the last day of the Flemington Spring Carnival for a well deserved win.
In his 15 starts for ATB, Dandino has earned almost $1.35m in prizemoney after a successful return from injury under Melbourne Cup winning trainer, Darren Weir.
In recent times we have competed internationally in Dubai, Royal Ascot, Rome, and at Arlington in Chicago, with Jakkalberry and Crackerjack King both winning and our owners collecting over AUD $1 Million in prize-money. Jakkalberry also won the Group 2 Dubai City of Gold at Meydan in Dubai in March 2013 and ran a fantastic 3rd placing behind Green Moon in the 2012 Melbourne Cup. He was retired earlier this year after failing to recover from a leg injury.
French international Tac De Boistron returned back to the UK in search of wet tracks and at his fourth start for new trainer Marco Botti he scored a 5 length victory in the Group 1 Prix Royal-Oak at Longchamp racecourse in France.
Our Group 1 winning South African mare Chocolicious was mated with unbeaten superstar Frankel and sold at the 2016 Sydney Easter Inglis Sale for $610,000.
