World class thoroughbred facility
A world class thoroughbred training facility and unique lifestyle property on Victoria’s picturesque Mornington Peninsula.
'Markdel’, a 38ha property located at 160 Sandy Road, Fingal is located on the highly sought after Mornington Peninsula, one of Australia’s premium lifestyle property markets. ‘Markdel’ is surrounded by a wide range of properties from high end holiday homes, boutique wineries, horse studs and intensive agricultural operations, all within an hour’s drive of the Melbourne CBD and Victoria’s premier thoroughbred racetracks.
The opportunity to acquire a property such as ‘Markdel’, with its proven record of achieving outstanding results, is unprecedented in the Australian horse racing industry.
‘Markdel’ was developed from a greenfield site to become a world class thoroughbred preparation and training property. The Freedman Brothers, who dominated Victorian and Australian racing for the best part of 15 years from the mid-1990s were responsible for the design and development of the property which today has an impeccable record of producing race track results. ‘Markdel’ has produced an enviable number of Australian and international results, including Melbourne Cups, Caulfield Cups, Golden Slippers, Cox Plates, plus numerous Derby’s and Oaks, along with many other winners.
“The property is situated on a natural range of sand dunes which enables the training of racehorses all year round. The ‘natural cushioning’ of the sand base is ideal to maintain horses in good health.
The property comprises:
• A modern, 85-box stable complex, including administration office.
• 1,200m rising railed sand-based grass track.
• 1,800m rising railed sand track.
• Enclosed circular sand yard.
• Eight horse automated walker.
• 60 day post and rail day paddocks.
• Heated horse swimming pool.
• Fully automated irrigation system.
• 80 Megalitre bore licence.
• Two machinery sheds with storage.
• On-site property manager’s house.
A significant proportion of the north-east corner of the property offers a further development opportunity (STCA), potentially for a new house site with ocean views.
The achievement of designing, developing, operating and achieving racetrack results from a greenfield site to a world class thoroughbred training facility in Australia’s competitive racing industry is unquestioned. The cost to replicate such a property in terms of its premium location could be argued to be commercially unjustifiable in today’s marketplace.
