Agistment / Breaker / Pre-training / Training.

Horse Breaking InLedger Racing and Adrian Park Agistment in Wangaratta Victoria look after the majority of  Blueblood Thoroughbreds spellers, pre-trainers and breakers in work. Blueblood also utilises the Agistment and Pre-Training services of Cobbitty Lodge based in NSW where our Sydney based and trained horses spell and pre-train.

Over the years Ledger Racing and master horseman, John Ledger have broken in, educated, pre-trained and agisted some of Victorian racing’s premier thoroughbred stock for some of Australia’s premier trainers.

Blueblood Thoroughbreds spells our elite racing team at Adrian Park Agistment which is located 20 minutes away from Wangaratta Turf Club. This beautiful and unique horse country comprises of over 200 acres in the scenic and peaceful area of Killawarra along the Ovens River. Catering to all forms of agistment including mare and foal, weanling, yearling, racing stock and complete with stallion paddocks and veterinary surgery recovery yards.

Adrian Park Agistment and Ledger Racing combine to offer a complete education, pre-training, training and agistment package. Blueblood Thoroughbreds have elected to utilise the outstanding facilities and services at Adrian Park.

John and his son, Chris Ledger, also train a few of our horses that are not quite right for city class but may just need a little more time to mature with the possibility of heading back to the city. Multiple group and listed winning trainers John and Chris Ledger operate one of the largest and most successful country stables currently in operation. A regular success in the city is complemented by John and his sons’ great horsemanship in training, breaking, pre training and educating a team of 50 plus horses.

John has been involved with horses since the age of 10 and was a talented equestrian rider often competing at a very high level of show jumping on a semi professional basis around the East Coast of Australia. He competed at both Sydney and Melbourne Royal shows and the World Cup events held in Victoria and NSW, winning and placing in many events and representing Victoria and Australia in New Zealand on numerous occasions.

Johns first big break as a thoroughbred trainer came in 1996 when he purchased a Blazing Sword filly later to be named Blaze the Turf winning his first listed and then Group race. Success continued to follow on over the next few years and then when Johns brother George died from Cancer and his best clients and family friends asked John to train George’s exciting young stayer, Brave Chief. The next 5 years were a sad but successful time with him winning 18 races and almost 1 million dollars in prize money, including the 2000 Group 2 Sandown Classic in Australasian record time for 2400metres.

8 Races at Moonee Valley including listed JRA Cup, Cranbourne Cup, Wodonga Cup.

  • Blaze the Turf- Winner of 4 races including Group 3 Autumn Stakes and “listed” Zeditave Stakes Placed Hareeba Stakes “Listed”
