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.
