Simon O’Donnell’s Wingara Thoroughbreds



Simon O’Donnell founded Wingara Thoroughbreds in 1995. Initially providing agistment and spelling services, the property has now evolved into an operation that consists of Breaking, Spelling, Pre-Training and Ready 2 Run preparation based in the renowned horse district of Willowmavin near Kilmore in Victoria. Wingara Thoroughbreds is on 200 acres of rolling hills and stunning scenery which was originally an old trotting property.

The Company philosophy is simple, in preparing horses at all times we aim to have your horse healthy, happy, both physically and mentally to give you their owners the best possible chance of race track success. To this measure Wingara Thoroughbreds has been enormously successful over the journey and has a long list of graduates that have gone onto successful race careers through many stables in both Melbourne and Sydney.
The team at Wingara Thoroughbreds are dedicated to giving each horse its best possible education, pre-training and spelling experience to help shape what will hopefully be successful race performances over a horses career. In recent times the farms activities have evolved to include our Ready 2 Run operation which has been at the forefront of the Inglis Ready 2 Run sales over the past 4 years. We are very hopeful that this activity continues to grow and develop, in particular servicing the ever expanding Asian and local markets.
We are really proud of the successes we have had as a farm over the journey so far and we welcome and look forward to our continued relationships with both trainers and owners throughout the thoroughbred industry.
