New thoroughbred property launched


Well known owners and breeders, Tim and Jackie Hughes, have launched a new boutique horse property “Carinya Lodge” at Cloud Valley Farm, Yarramalong.

Carinya Lodge has been built to cater for quality racehorses who will spell and agist in the picturesque and peaceful Yarramalong Valley, less than 90 minutes from Sydney’s CBD.

“Given our involvement in racing, we have been looking for a farm for some years. We acquired Cloud Valley Farm in late 2009 with the concept of turning it into a place we could not only enjoy, but could turn into a first class racehorse spelling farm,” Tim Hughes said.

“Last year we appointed Dean Melton as Manager. He has over 25 years experience in racehorse farm management and has operated as a licensed trainer.

“We believe the natural beauty and peacefulness of the valley provides an ideal environment for racehorses to develop, refresh, spell and recover.”
