BYERLEY STUD, under the guidance of Martin & Jennifer Hawcroft, re-located back to the Hunter Valley in 1991 and has been trading under that name since 1965.
Byerley Stud is a 1000 acre property bordering the Goulburn River in the Upper Hunter Valley catering for all of your horses needs from mating advice, foaling your mare down and walking her on to your preferred stallion through to sale preparation, attending all of the major selling centres in Australia and spelling your racehorse.
Our foundation stallion was the blueblood Sir Laurence, an eye-catching son of Bletchingly out of the great mare Stage Hit, who entered stud duties after a consistent racing career in the Tommy Smith stable. The highlight of his stud career culminated with Laurie’s Lottery winning the Group 1 Doomben 10000 as well as siring stakes winners Pauls Folly, Lucky Night, Delusional, etc.
Byerley’s next stallion purchase was the Champion Group 1 winning son of Danehill, Nothin’ Leica Dane, who went on to produce black type horses such as Hot Danish, Cinque Cento, Leica Falcon, Superior Star, Utzon, etc.
Byerley has raised and/or sold yearlings under the Southern Cross banner including Sesar, Doubt Defying, Biscara, Malambo, Occurence, Welkom Gold, Acoustic Sound, Jimmy Fortunes, Miss Independent (Inglis Classic Winner), Iguazo, Racing Pegasus, Yoburg, etc.
Byerley is in close proximity to the historic Widden Stud, Coolmore, Godolphin and is within an easy 45 minute drive to the major studs surrounding Scone.
