Thanks for taking the time to visit us at Blackiston Racing, the home of multiple Group 1 winning trainer Nigel Blackiston. We hope you enjoy browsing our website.
We have enjoyed a successful start to the 2016/17 season. Young horses like Getemhel and Sneakers have kicked off their careers with wins. Progressive middle distance types like Groovin' and Electric Aura have won their maidens and look set for more victories. Our old mate Ferro Nero has scored twice at metropolitan level, and exciting three-year-old colt Inside Agent won at stakes level in early October.
Meanwhile, we are loving the development of a lot of young two and three-year-olds ready to break through for their first victories, on the path to future success in higher grades.
Nigel is about to commence inspecting and shortlisting yearlings to target for purchase at the upcoming yearling sales in early 2017. Of course we also continue to privately source horses of all ages for our clients to buy or lease. So please subscribe to our mailing list and connect with us on social media to stay informed.

Well done channel 7 for again using Jockey Cam this Spring. Michael Walker on Inside Agent participated on Saturday at Caulfield.

Ferro Nero, aka Basil, scored his fourth victory on Wednesday on Blue Sapphire Stakes Day at Caulfield.
Inside Agent stepped out at just his second race start to win the Listed Poseidon Stakes at Flemington on Sunday.
Very pleased to welcome the NZ-bred filly, La Vida Loca, to Flemington recently.
At Pakenham on Sunday, Groovin’ kicked strongly in the straight to score a comfortable victory in the three-year-old Maiden over 1600m.
