Quotation from Joe O'Neill, Prime Thoroughbreds founder:

"I hope you decide to join Prime and experience racing a horse with us. Year in, year out, we prove by our results that you don’t have to spend a fortune to get into a nice horse."

"We had 40 winners in the 2014 - 2015 season with stakes and metropolitan winners in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Tasmania."

"This places us at the forefront of syndication companies in Australia."

Nineteen Years

Our company was established in 1997 and has forged successful partnerships with some of Australia’s best trainers. Initially, we worked exclusively with Bill Mitchell. Upon his retirement, in 2005, we split the horses between David Hayes and Kris Lees.

Today, our business has greatly expanded from those days and we now have horses trained in five states.

Our trainers are carefully selected and are top class; names both well known and respected:

Darren Weir, Kris Lees, Tony McEvoy, John Moloney, Charlie Goggin and Leuella Meaburn, John Thompson, Tony Gollan and Patrick Payne.

Norm Rance, Client since 2006. "Communication is an important part of the industry and in this area Joe O’Neill excels. I have been kept informed of the progress of my horses on a daily basis either by email or phone and Joe is always there to answer the phone if I need to contact him."

Peter Selleck, Client since 2002. "It has been a wonderful way to become involved as a hobby owner. It was hard not to be excited when my horse, Too Many Reds, ran on Melbourne Cup day with Glen Boss aboard. If he'd won, there would have been way too many. I built and I maintain this site. Joe O'Neill is as good a syndicator as you will find and is a delight to work with."
