Five generations of renowned Hunter Valley horsemanship
Cangon Stud Farm comprises over 2000 acres of prime thoroughbred country in the lower Hunter Valley and is run on a hands-on basis by renowned horseman Jock Mackay, an internationally celebrated Polo player who represents the fifth generation of an immediate family that first settled on the property in 1838.
Jock grew up on Cangon and became a thoroughly competent rider well before his teenage years. He's since traveled the globe playing professional Polo in more than 10 different countries and reaching the handicap of 5 goals. He's also been an Australian representative player many times over.
Polo and general horse husbandry is very much in Jock's blood. His father Jamie was also an acclaimed Australian Polo player himself, making his test debut against New Zealand in 1974 before being appointed captain of Australia in 1986. In fact Jamie's father Ken, too, was an equally revered horseman, with both of Jock's forebears being inducted into the Hunter Region Sporting Hall of Fame.
Cangon Stud Farm has been constantly developed for the specific purpose of breeding horses and no expense has been spared to provide a thoroughly conducive environment. We offer both short- and long-term broodmare agistment as well as racehorse spelling, and care for your horses like they are our own.
