From the original purchase of l40 acres 25 years ago, Blue Gum Farm has gradually grown to its current acreage of 800. From Sheans Creek Road to the foot of the Strathbogie Ranges, the post and rail is unmistakably thoroughbred. With the benefit of two generations of experience, Blue Gum Farm entered a new phase in 2005. The formation of a syndicate to buy into one of, if not the leading racehorse of the moment, Elvstroem, was a well thought out and decisive move in the farm’s future. Impeccably bred with a race record to match, Elvstroem has unlimited potential as a sire. In the spring of 2005 Elvstroem joined proven sires Rubiton and Umatilla as well as the exciting pair of King Charlemagne and Statue Of Liberty, on the Blue Gum Farm roster.From 166 mares covered in his first season Elvstroem got 147 of those in-foal and through the quality of the mares booked to him he has given himself every chance to succeed as a stallion.
