Welcome to Cangon Stud Farm, the home of thoroughbred stallions Choistar, Dubleo and Ad Valorem. My name is Jock Mackay. Jaime and Jennifer, my parents have been successfully breeding, rearing and racing our own thoroughbreds for many years. Now we would like to share our success with our valued clients by expanding our operation and providing both short and long term broodmare agistment and racehorse spelling. We are owner-operators, so we care for your horses like they are our own and we are always on hand for consultation and advice.

The property has been developed for the specific purpose of breeding horses and no expense has been spared to provide the safest and healthiest environment for your horses.

Cangon Stud Farm is situated just 2.5 hours north of Sydney in the Lower Hunter at Dungog. The property is only 4kms from the town of Dungog providing easy access from Sydney, Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

The Mackay family first settled the farm in 1838, and now we, the fifth generation of the Mackay family continue to add to that rich and vibrant history. Today Cangon Stud Farm comprises over 2000 acres of prime thoroughbred country ranging from undulating hills to the rich alluvial flats of the Williams River.

The property has been a nursery for many successful racehorses including Group-winners He’s No Pie Eater, Miss Kariba, Katima, Whoever, Vanquished and the recent stakes-winning 2YO Golden Millennium, all bred and reared by the Mackay family.

For potential clients I say come and experience the Cangon way and let us take care of your investment and share our success with you. We breed to race ultimately to win, and we want the same for clients.

Be part of that success.
