Spacious paddock sizes are one of the main features of the property and a key differentiator in Rosemont’s agistment service. Our paddocks are much larger than average, which means we are able to create conditions for young horses to grow in a natural environment that maximizes the individual development of each horse. Full quarantine and isolation facilities are in place, and Rosemont has a range of long yards and day paddocks available for use, depending on your horse’s needs. If you’re looking for racehorse agistment in Victoria then our Ceres property has everything you could hope for.
Rosemont provides a full foal-down service with a state-of-the art foaling unit, 24/7 night watch in breeding season and dedicated floodlit paddock space for mares nearing foal birth. Trained staff supervise all foalings to ensure mares and foals receive the best care and attention. Rosemont’s resident vet is also on call 24/7 for any emergency issues that arise through foaling.
Rosemont Stud employs a resident vet to oversee the health of all horses on the property, allowing us to offer comprehensive veterinary services to all of our horses. This is particularly important during breeding season to ensure all of our horse are in their optimal condition.
During the breeding season Rosemont facilitates a range of methods for getting mares in foal depending on your needs:
- Resident Mares – Mares agisting at Rosemont are prepared on-site and serviced by one of Rosemont’s stallions. Mares are vetted and monitored throughout their pregnancy and eventually foal down at Rosemont.
- Walk On – Mares are brought to Rosemont from other locations, serviced by Rosemont stallions and return to their residence after servicing.
- Walk Out – Mares agisting at Rosemont are taken to another farm for servicing by a non-Rosemont stallion and returned to Rosemont for the duration of their pregnancy and eventual foaling down.
Rosemont is able to accommodate all options for getting mares in foal and has truck and transport facilities to ensure efficiency, convenience and comfort for your mare, whatever your preference.

It is an education that prepares them for their next stage, whether it be as a sales yearling or breaking-in and lays the foundations for their careers as racehorses.
