South Coast

Turpentine Park is a boutique thoroughbred operation that offers all the services for your racehorse preparation requirements.

Our ideal location, within easy reach of Sydney, Kembla Grange and Goulburn  race tracks provides us with a unique opportunity to develop young horses.

This close proximity is an essential point of difference to most other trainers and is unique to Turpentine Park.

Deluxe spelling facilities

After the yearling sales and between training preparations the horses are agisted on the property. The relaxed atmosphere is a distant memory from the hustle and bustle of race day – but close enough to ensure the process of “unwinding” doesn’t get out of hand.

  • Yearling preparation

Turpentine Park is also blessed with immediate access to the superb racing and training tracks of Kembla Grange and Nowra and the stunning 7 Mile Beach at Berry offers the perfect natural surface to work racehorses.

Advanced stabling and training facilities 

enable horses to fulfill their potential. Lock up stables with “quarter acre” day paddocks for each horse, allow much needed variety. This is a vital edge over the city trained horses – and allows for longer preparations and increased success with results.

Swimming facilities
