Windsor Park Stud
When you walk into Windsor Park Stud, you walk into history A history of champion sires and racehorses bred to a winning formula for over four decades by a committed and passionate team. A team whose whole is greater than the sum of its parts; forming an extended family whose unique combination of experience and knowledge forms the DNA of Windsor Park Stud and its ongoing success. Owned by the Schick family, Windsor Park has experienced exponential growth from a modest 108 acres in 1971 to 1,300 acres of diversely contoured, highly fertile land over four farms in the famed thoroughbred district of Cambridge, Waikato. Initially purchased and developed by Nelson and Sue Schick, Windsor Park is now part-owned and managed by their eldest son Rodney and his wife Gina. Rod has been an integral part of Windsor Park’s success for the last 20 years, enhancing past achievements, including the prestige of three New Zealand Breeder Of The Year titles and numerous Champion Sire awards. The operation benefits enormously from Rod’s experience gained on studs and in racing stables worldwide together with the expert tutelage received when living with Kentucky-based Dr Ric Redden; widely acknowledged as the leading global authority on laminitis.
Gina, a very accomplished horsewoman in her own right, not only looks after their four children but also manages her own business EventStars, which retrains and rehomes off-the-track thoroughbreds providing them with exciting and productive futures at the completion of their racing careers. Windsor Park’s international reputation for producing champion racehorses such as Australian great Might And Power, international champion So You Think, and Hong Kong superstar Aerovelocity, is an undeniably important part of their history. Equally vital is their promising future, boldly evidenced in their current youthful stallion roster. From the inception of Windsor Park, the stud’s shared mission and underlying philosophy has been to stand premium stallions which create the opportunity to breed the best racehorses possible. Previous champion sires Star Way, Kaapstad, Montjeu, Volksraad, High Chaparral, Thorn Park and Mastercraftsman illuminate the value of their rigorous selection process. Since 2014, Windsor Park’s stallion roster has been enriched by six immensely talented new recruits, joining two proven sires, each demonstrating a significant investment in genetics and their strong commitment to the thoroughbred breeding and racing industry. Once again, the opportunity to race towards an exciting and successful future awaits.
