Welcome to Medowie Lodge, Harness Racing Stud located at Medowie in the Port Stephens area of the Hunter Region in New South Wales, Australia.
Run by Darren Reay and family, Darren is a licensed Harness Racing Trainer, Studmaster and also a successful breeder and owner. He is also the Vice President of Harness Breeders NSW.
Medowie Lodge is excited to announce that TIGER TARA NZ, the 2019 Horse of the Year and Grand Circuit Champion and one of the greatest pacers ever raced in this country, will stand his first public season at the Medowie Lodge for the 2020-2021 breeding season.
His service fee is $3,500 including GST with chilled semen in Australia and frozen to NZ. He served a few of his owner’s mares between racetrack campaigns and his first small crop of yearlings have been broken in and have shown up as natural, bold pacers.
In a career spanning eight seasons, Tiger Tara amassed $2,375,065 from 37 wins and 40 placings in 112 starts and took a mile mark of 1:49.8 – the fastest time ever recorded by an Inter Dominion champion.
He notched seven wins at Group 1 level and won a staggering 22 Group races overall and earned $100,000 or more in six consecutive seasons.
Tiger Tara, a top flight pacer and a real iron horse, won over all distances from 1609 to 2760 metres and emerged successful in three States in Australia and both islands of New Zealand.
Tiger Tara set the harness racing world abuzz from October 2018 to February 2019 winning seven races – six at Group level – highlighted by an unprecedented treble in Grand Circuit events - the Inter Dominion Final, A. G. Hunter Cup (smashing his own track record) and the Victoria Cup – by a combined margin of 41 metres.
