about us

In this highly competitive industry, Eldon Park is fast building a reputation for service beyond the norm. With value and service as a cornerstone, Eldon Park has built a client base of loyal supporters who are made to feel very much at home here.

All facets of horse husbandry are catered for and a program that best suits your needs can be tailored for you. Steve Allen who is well assisted by a team of enthusiastic horsemen and women manages Eldon Park.

Eldon Park began as a weekend retreat for Melbourne couple Don and Elizabeth Byrne and their family. Don Byrne, a medical practitioner, had a long-held interest in racing and a passion for pedigrees that needed exercising.

The beautiful Mornington Peninsula property provided the perfect venue. Their first mare Across The Wind was purchased on a trip to Ireland in 1979 and so, from humble beginnings, Eldon Park has slowly developed from a hobby farm to a seriously commercial thoroughbred stud.

We welcome your mares and their progeny in 2006 and assure you of the utmost care managed by our well assisted team of enthusiastic horsemen and women. As is only possible on a smaller stud farm, our team is personally involved in all stages of your horseís care, from delivering your foal to calling you with the good news. Dr Hugh Cathels of the Cranbourne Veterinary Clinic & Rod Craig, Performance Horse Shoeing complete our staff line-up continuing a long and very successful partnership with the Studís management.
