About Us
Bell View Park Stud’s Aim: Bell View Park Stud is owned and run by the Mackrell family. The aim of the business is to source quality mares for the commercial breeder. Bell View Park Stud acquires high quality maiden and dry mares, locally and abroad. The majority of these mares will be mated with highly commercial stallions that complement them both physically and genetically. These mares are then carefully prepared and presented for sale at the major breeding stock auctions in Australia. Whilst sale of mares is the core focus, Bell View Park Stud also selectively spells, pre-trains and breaks-in horses on the property. Attached is a copy of Bell View Park Stud’s current Fees and charges.

Feeding: Bell View Park Stud firmly believes that in order for a thoroughbred to reach its full potential, it must be fed accordingly. The farm uses a highly regarded equine nutrition specialist to tailor a supplementary feed program to complement Bell View Park Stud’s healthy pastures.

Horse Care: Bell View Park Stud staff pride themselves on providing a high level of individual care for each horse. All horses are checked at least twice daily to monitor their general health and well being. Thorough records are maintained - horses are vaccinated, drenched, groomed and receive farrier, dental, physio and veterinarian treatment as and when required. Spellers, breakers and pre-trainers are also weighed regularly to monitor their progress.

Mare Preparation and Sales: Bell View Park Stud takes considerable care in preparing mares for sale. Each mare is prepared individually and fed and groomed accordingly. It is Bell View Park Stud’s aim to present our mares in immaculate order to generate the highest interest possible in the sales ring.
