Edinglassie History

Edinglassie Homestead in it’s original glory days

Welcome to Edinglassie Thoroughbred Stud. Edinglassie has always been a well-known landmark and has provided a community focus over a number of generations from the turn of the 19th Century.

Edinglassie is nestled on the banks of the Hunter River which has always been associated with top Agricultural land with an abundance of water resources. The property is steeped with Australian pioneering  heritage and was the initial settlement for the White families leading pastoral dynasty before being purchased by the Oatley family, famous for their involvements with yachting, equestrian , wine and thoroughbred breeding. 

The White family as well as being great pastoralists were also racehorse breeders and owners. One of the Whites greatest successes was on the track in 1877 when his horse Chester won the Victoria Racing Club’s Derby-Melbourne Cup double. It’s ironic that the successful racing tradition White started continues at Edinglassie today.

Today Edinglassie under the management of Mick and Michelle Talty has proven to be a successful thoroughbred broodmare farm comprising of 500 acres of fertile, irrigated pastures – undulating hills for growing strong yearlings and gently river flats for nurturing mares and foals.

The property provides clean, healthy pastures and spacious safe grazing.
