Tags: Cambridge Rural

One of the country’ s leading equestrian bloodstock farms in Cambridge, the equine capital of New Zealand, has been placed on the market for sale.

Milan Park is a 20 hectare (50 acre) property on the banks of the Waikato River, just five minutes west of Cambridge township and 22km from Hamilton.

Bayleys Cambridge salesperson Alistair Scown says Milan Park exemplifies the reputation of Cambridge as being home to stud farms of an exceptionally high calibre.

“The opportunity is there for the new owner to walk into a proven equine preparation and agistment property with everything needed to continue on its strong reputation and with the support of a passionate equestrian community,” Mr Scown says.

The property is comprised of around 33 paddocks with post and rail fencing and free draining sandy loam soil.

A full range of equestrian facilities including a 10 horse stable block, horse walker, veterinary horse crush and a sealed parade ring are being sold with the property.

Accommodation includes a modern four bedroom Lockwood home with internal access double garage, and a separate two bedroom cottage. Bore water provides excellent supply to the farm and buildings.

Milan Park is widely recognized as having produced some of New Zealand’s top performing racehorses and is set up to provide the perfect environment for the breeding, foaling, weaning and sales preparation of thoroughbred bloodstock.


Known as the Town of Trees and Champions, Cambridge is home to 18,400 people including many elite athletes who base themselves in the village while training at Lake Karapiro or the recently opened Avantidrome indoor cycling venue.

There is a strong equestrian community in the region and a number of specialist saddlery stores close by.
