Stud pioneers honoured by peers
Sir Patrick and Lady
Justine Hogan were honoured with a special presentation from New Zealand Bloodstock at Karaka on Wednesday, January 30.
Family, friends, staff, colleagues and the public filled the sales auditorium to pay their respects to the couple who have been pioneers in the New Zealand bloodstock industry under their Cambridge Stud banner.
The Hogans and Cambridge Stud are synonymous with excellence and innovation in the breeding and selling of thoroughbred racehorses.
During their 32 years of wearing the leading vendor crown at the National Yearling Sales, they were the first to introduce many of the features that are now regarded as commonplace among vendors.
Included amongst the many milestones achieved by the Hogans in that time is selling the highest price yearling in the Sale’s history, a Zabeel colt sold for $3.6 million in 2000, along with the highest price yearling of the sale on a remarkable 24 occasions.
The couple were presented by a trophy engraved with the names of their most significant sales results and performances.
Cambridge Stud was purchased by Brendan and Jo Lindsay in November 2017 and they will take over in April.
HONOURED: Sir Patrick and Lady Justine Hogan with their trophy presented by New Zealand Bloodstock.
