Australian nursery Lindsay Park renamed

FAMOUS South Australian operation Lindsay Park Stud, once the home of Alzao and Scenic, has been renamed Cornerstone Stud by owners Sam Hayes and Darren Thomas.

The stud, which was established in 1965 and is home to seven stallions including former Arrowfield sire Hussonet, was bought three years ago by its current owners from David Hayes.

"There is a great deal of history and esteem attached to the Lindsay Park name, but equally there was always an element of misunderstanding within the industry," said Hayes in a release. "The new name will help to generate some clarity around our business and the services we provide for our clients.

"The vision we have for Cornerstone is to continue building on the quality of our stallion roster and the quality of our broodmare band, in association with our clients. It is a team effort. Building long term partnerships with leading thoroughbred breeders both locally and internationally is central to our plan.

"We wanted a name that was strong and grounded. When you breed racehorses youare at the start of something and we feel the same way about our business today. In order to be successful you need to start with a solid foundation and Cornerstone reflects that ethos."

Group 1-producing sire Hussonet, a recent arrival from Arrowfield Stud in Australia, heads this season's stallion roster at A$25,000.
