Driven by our great love of horses
Lauriston Park is a boutique breeding and spelling farm situated at Creightons Creek near Euroa, with easy access to the Hume Highway. Its establishment is the culmination of a combined 40 years experience in the horse industry by the owners Chris and Kathie Bakker.
Driven by their great love of horses the vision Chris and Kath have is to provide a farm where total professional care is given.
Care for all the needs of your horse
The focus is to care for the foals at birth and then nurture them right through their early years. When they go into training for racing to have them come “home” to the farm for their spelling periods.
Keeping the operation small and using experienced staff will not only ensure consistency in handling from birth but also enable the provision of first class horse management at a realistic cost to owners.
Surrounded by nature
In the 70s and 80s Lauriston Park had operated as one of Victoria’s top thoroughbred farms for Gunnersons under the guidance of Thelma Harris, and was quickly acquired by Chris and Kathie when it came on the market in 2003.
The farm boasts arguably the finest water supply in the district with Creighton’s Creek running through the property. It is also blessed with several spring-fed dams that provide adequate water for all farm needs. The property also possesses many beautiful well-established gum trees. This is not only a great guide to the excellent quality of the soil, but the trees provide shade in summer, and protection from the winds that move through the valley in which the property nestles.
