Bart was probably the best trainer of stayers that Australia has ever had and was one of the few people to keep the staying dream alive in a country obsessed with breeding sprinters except at Melbourne Cup time.

The trainer of 12 Melbourne Cup winners is testimony to his ability to train stayers.

Many will also remember his very dry ands wicked wit and his fondness for steak and eggs.

A true legend.

I am a Small breeder of Thoroughbred horses for commercial sale and to race. I Started this site to provide a selling and marketing alternative for breeders with weanlings and yearlings to sell. Small breeders in particular can find it hard and expensive to leave their properties to go to the major sales. This site provides us with an online alternative to the major sales. The site can also be used to advertise youngsters being sold at the major sales and, if any youngsters are passed in, the site is an ongoing marketing platform to continue to market yearlings and weanlings after the sales are over. Trainers can also use the site to advertise shares in yearlings that they have bought at the sales.
