After selling Hawa to New Zealand the ambitious Colin Hayes AM OBE decided that Beaufields was becoming too small for their plans and started looking for a larger property.
With the help of Adelaide stock agents Coles Bros. Ltd they acquired Lindsay Park from Sir Keith Angus and the newly named Lindsay Park Stud Syndicate took over from July 1, 1965.
While still in its infancy, Lindsay Park raced from success to success. In 1967 Captain Paddy Hardbord Managing Director of the historic Curragh Bloodstock Agency visited Lindsay Park saying: “This could be the start of a small Kentucky….”
From the 70’s through to the 90’s Lindsay Park was home to some of Australia’s best credentialed stallions including Without Fear, Godswalk, Habituate, Arch Sculptor, Scenic, Bluebird, Military Plume and Jeune.
Lindsay Park has also had a major role in shaping Australia’s top broodmare sires such as At Talaq and Rory’s Jester. The dams of racing heavyweights, Manikato and top sire General Nediym, were bred at Lindsay Park; while the dams of Golden Slipper winners, Ha Ha and Belle De Jour, and the Blue Diamond winner, Road to Success, were also trained at the Hayes family base.
