Mill Park Stud is located in the upper south east of South Australia, close to the world renowned Coorong National Park. The farm consists of 10,000 acres of undulating limestone based country with renovated lucerne and veldt grass pastures. The horse enterprise has been established on 2,000 acres. Their low stocking rate of 1 horse per 8-10 acres enables a natural free range upbringing which they believe is part of the successful raising of competitive racehorses.
Apart from their breeding operation the Watson’s also spell racehorses for some of the leading South Australian trainers. The family also owns a 300 acre irrigated lucerne property in Meningie which allows the supply of consistently high quality fodder to the farm.
Chris became a director of both Aushorse Marketing and Thoroughbred Breeders Association in October, 2012.
