Leilani Lodge has been the home of champions for more than 40 years. Nestled in the heart of Sydney, the stables are situated on course at Randwick racetrack enjoying access to world class racehorse training facilities. Stabling at Randwick also allows horses access to the best care of veterinarians, physiotherapists, dentists and farriers that service the facility. With high trees and bushery, it is easy to forget that the horses are training in a suburban area. Open spaces, peace and quiet and fresh air provide an ideal location for the horses to rest and recuperate, and combined with 5 star dietary programs, the horses are guaranteed the most optimum chance to produce their absolute best.


Leilani Lodge has 60 stables and facilities include its own equine weighing machine and an on-site iced spa to cool off horses legs post gallop.


Named after James grandfather Bart’s, well renowned Group I mare in Leilani, the list of occupants of the stable is impressive with the likes of Ming Dynasty, Beau Zam, Sky Chase, Campaign King to Dane Ripper and Saintly, and most recently Empire’s Choice, Roman Emperor, So You Think, Rock Classic, Norzita, Lunar Rise, Empress Rock, Eurozone and Hallowed Crown. The stable consistently produces top class horses year after year.


Training at Royal Randwick racecourse means that the horses have access to three grass galloping tracks, an all-weather dirt track and sand track for daily trot and canter exercise. The “bull-ring” provides the younger horses with a more secure area to further their education and for others it is a place to help freshen the mind from usual track work routines where they can jump logs and exercise in the open. Barrier trials are held once a fortnight and jump outs will often take place every week during the Spring and Autumn. Swimming is also an important part of the training – the horses make good use of the Randwick pool all year round and regular trips to the beach ensure that they enjoy a change of scenery as well as exercise and cooling benefits for horses between races.


Leilani Lodge ensures that each horse is given every opportunity to perform at the best of their ability.
