Tragedy at Raheen Stud
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday November 7
The racing and breeding world is in mourning following the shock death of popular horseman Basil Nolan Jr, who was killed in a workplace incident at Gladfield late on Melbourne Cup day.

The 45 year-old father of four ran the well-known and highly successful Queensland farm Raheen Stud alongside his father Basil Nolan Snr (President of Thoroughbred Breeders Australia), mother Diane and wife Natalie.

News reports indicate Basil Jr was found by a fellow worker trapped in machinery about 11pm last night. The worker administered CPR after Basil Jr suffered critical injuries, but he could not be revived and died at the scene.

Our thoughts are with the Nolan family and all the team at Raheen Stud in this terribly sad time.
