Bluebloods : Karaka 2012 Yearling Sale Preview
KARAKA 2012 YEARLING SALE PREVIEW 38 A A COMBINATION of sharp business skills and hard work has resulted in Belvedere Farm quickly becoming established as producer of high quality horses. “After I had bought the property I spent the next two years getting it up to scratch,” Emery said. “ It was a dairy farm and I virtually stripped it and rebuilt it.” Although it was developed as a haven for his thoroughbred breeding endeavours, the farm is now also home to paying residents. “ Initially I set it up for myself, but in more recent times I’ve been taking other horses and will probably continue to do so. Some of my mares today are residing in Australia so we can accommodate other clients.” Emery has a broodmare band of 25 that has served to propel Belvedere through the Australasian breeding ranks. “ Most of them are in Cambridge and we’ve had our share of success. Relatives of Champagne have performed well, as have relatives of the Palia family like Dr Green. I purchased mares from the United Kingdom a few years ago and some of those have also performed well, and there’s a lot of unraced stock still to come.” George Main Stakes-Gr.1 winner Mr Celebrity has been another flagbearer. ” We’ve had quite a few Group and stakes winners over a short period of time including City of Auckland Cup winner Zarius, Nadege & Martique to name a few.” BELVEDERE FARM Considerable success on the track Bob Emery has enjoyed considerable success on the racetrack as an owner and he took his thoroughbred investment to another level in 2000 with the purchase of a Cambridge property to pursue his breeding interests.
