Join Louis Mihalyka of Laurel Oak Bloodstock on the very enjoyable annual tour to New Zealand to inspect Tony’s 2011 yearling purchases. There are two options:-

Five Day tour – departing Sunday 14 August and return Friday 19 August. Fly to Auckland on Sunday, then on Monday we travel to Cambridge and see our yearlings in training at Tony Pike’s Cambridge stables. We also visit several NZ studs on this day. On Tuesday we travel to Taupo where we fish on Lake Taupo on Tuesday afternoon while ladies have the option of enjoying day spa. On Wednesday we enjoy lunch at the magnificent Huka Lodge before returning to Cambridge area on Thursday to visit several other studs. We return home on Friday arriving back in Sydney or Melbourne mid-afternoon. All aspects of the tour are subject to appropriate numbers

Two Day Tour – a shortened option is to return to Australia on the Tuesday 16 August after the visit to Cambridge.

The cost will be determined by the number of tourists. The studs to be visited will be determined by the mix of tourists, so that you do not visit exactly the same studs as the previous year.

An RSVP to Boo in our office (5976 2607) or direct to Louis (0418 962 858) is required by next Wednesday 27 July so that appropriate transport, accommodation and airline flights can be finalised as suitable accommodation can be in short supply in some parts of NZ.
