Cangon Stud Farm is situated just 2.5 hours north of Sydney in the Lower Hunter at Dungog. This historic farm was first settled in 1838 by the Mackay family who emigrated from Scotland via Prince Edward Island in Canada. Cangon is still held by the Mackay family and is run by the fifth generation, Jaime and Jennifer Mackay.

The original homestead was built in 1840 and is surrounded by outer buildings constructed of stone and brick. Traditionally the Mackay family has had a long association with the primary industry, but for over a century have been successfully breeding thoroughbreds for racing.

The property has been a nursery for many successful racehorses including Group winners Miss Kariba, He’s No Pie Eater, Katima, Whoever and Vanquished, all bred by the Mackay family.

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 Miss Kariba, He’s No Pie Eater, Katima, Whoever and Vanquished, all bred by the Mackay family.

This grounding of “hands on experience” has proven most valuable for the development and running of the farm and provides clients with the highest level of assurance.

Cangon has the pasture, space and terrain to develop and strengthen young horses."
