Stable Stars

Each season Pencarrow fields a huge team of runners throughout New Zealand and Australia to race in the famed blue and white hoops. Many are trained by the partnership of Steven Ramsay & Julia Ritchie at our private training facility at Maungatautari, and many others are spread throughout stables around the country and further afield. This team is aimed at generating value for Pencarrow's prestigious broodmare band, for the benefit of our own future racing and breeding prospects and also for those who purchase horses from us each year at Karaka.

Throughout the season our recent stars and most promising performers feature here so keep an eye out for the ones to watch.

You can view the full list of Pencarrrow winners on our Race Results page.
