Raising elite racehorses is the motto at Vinery Stud. They continue to raise the bar when it comes to achieving this goal with unbeaten Oakleigh Plate Gr.1 winner Marabi being born and raised at Vinery the latest top notch galloper to come from the famed nursery.

Vinery’s 2020 Easter draft was smaller than usual due to the pandemic, but those few three-year-olds include Gr.3 placed city winner A Very Fine Red.

“It’s no secret that the property is well renowned for producing top quality racehorses,” said Adam White. “There is rarely a time when we don’t have a horse of the calibre of Marabi taking that V brand to great heights. Other Vinery Easter graduates are Gr.1 winners Aristia and exciting freshman stallion Russian Revolution, while Vinery has also sold the winners of a Golden Slipper, Blue Diamond and a Magic Millions with three different horses over the last three years which is something we are very proud of.”
