Redbank Norths 1300 acres (520 hectares) have for over 100 years been recognised as some of this countrys finest grazing land. James and Fiona Middleton became the landowners and operators of Redbank North in 1979.
For the past 30 years some of these acres have provided the ideal environment for spelling racehorses and broodmares. Due to the success of this spelling operation the horse area was increased 10 years ago to provide a natural environment for the growing out of weanlings and yearlings
Whilst acknowledging the importance of bloodlines in producing superior runners, Redbank North has the staff, the experience, and most importantly the ideal environment to help their equine athletes develop to their full potential.
Redbank North is a family run operation and James and Fionas eldest daughter Dimity joined the team full time in 2008 after studying, working locally and abroad in the equine industry. Katrina (their second daughter) is also a valuable member of the team, however mainly on weekends or in university holidays when she is not studying in Canberra.
For over three decades, James and Fiona have been keen participants in the racing industry by breeding, training and racing thoroughbreds. They both and the team at Redbank North understand the importance of the role a spelling farm plays in a training stable.
The properties are located near the village of Jugiong on the South West Slopes of New South Wales. It is an easy 3.5 hours drive down the Hume highway from Sydney and 6 hours up the Hume highway from Melbourne. It is also only 1.5 hours from Canberra and an average of 5-6 hours from major studs in the Hunter Valley and in Victoria.
