Blue Sky Bloodstock use a number of trainers in our system and pair each colt purchased with a trainer we feel that best matches the physical and pedigree traits of each individual animal. Our trainers are a vital and important link in the progression from young horse to potential stallion and we value their input when we select suitable colts for purchase at the sales. If a trainer doesn't love the yearling colts we give him or her to train, we've found there is no point giving it to them to train in the first place.

We use proven trainers, with a proven track record of producing stallions that go on to commercial stud duties.

In Sydney our trainers include GAI WATERHOUSE, CHRIS WALLER, GERALD RYAN, GARY PORTELLI, CLARRY CONNERS, MICHAEL FREEDMAN, JAMES CUMMINGS and TEAM HAWKES. In Melbourne our trainers include FREEDMAN BROSDANNY O'BRIEN, TONY MCEVOY, DAVID HAYES and MICK PRICE and in QLD we use TONY GOLLAN, STEVE O'DEA and TOBY EDMONDS. Each of these trainers has won numerous Group 1 races in their own right and trained commercial sires the likes of PIERRO, NORTHERN METEOR, SEBRING, ALL TOO HARD, SNITZEL, STAR WITNESS, EXTREME CHOICE, FLYING ARTIE and LONHRO to name but a few.

Our relationships are long and established with each of our trainers and ensure our Stallion Partnership Colts get every chance to succeed on the race track and later on in the breeding barn.
