Located at Angaston in the heart of the Barossa Valley in South Australia, and Flemington Racecourse, McEvoy Mitchell Racing offers state-of-the-art training facilities for thoroughbred racehorses.
Kildalton Park, Angaston provides a relaxing and natural environment for horses complete with lush pastures, rolling hills and big red gums. The facility comprises uphill grass gallops, an all-weather track (with electronic timing), a swimming pool, sand rolls, galloping treadmills, expansive pastures and stables with a country view.
Thoroughbred racing is about winners and the records show, in racing parlance, Tony McEvoy is a Group One performer.
That lasting success, over 34 years, will ensure McEvoy’s latest venture McEvoy Mitchell Racing becomes a major player in Australian racing.
Together with Yarrawonga (Victoria) businessman Wayne Mitchell, McEvoy operates the 93 hectare Kildalton Park at Angaston in South Australia. The land was formerly known as Raceside as part of the late Colin Hayes’ Lindsay Park Stud complex. The partnership also purchased the former Lindsay Park spelling property at Murbko on the River Murray in South Australia.
Kildalton Farm is the McEvoy Mitchell Racing pre-training, education and spelling facility. Located on the Murray River between Morgan and Murbko in South Australia, Kildalton Farm is set in a pristine rural environment, complete with 500 metres of river frontage and comprising 122 acres, a 1,000m training track, stabling and irrigated lucerne pastures in a climate that provides temperatures in the vicinity of 8 degrees warmer than the Barossa Valley in the colder months.
