Morning Rise Stud

Located on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula is the newly established property Morning Rise Stud. A privately-owned, boutique stud farm Morning Rise Stud is the vision of thoroughbred devotee Robert McClure.

Morning Rise aims to achieve breeding excellence through breeding a select group of quality broodmares to the best commercial stallions available in Australia with the view of selling the progeny at the major sales in Australia.

Situated in a lush valley overlooking beautiful Port Phillip Bay, Morning Rise is a 77 acre farm located in the picturesque Red Hill. With ten state of the art stabling facilities, irrigated pasture, horse mesh fencing, post and rail fencing as well as a fully equipped foaling facility, Morning Rise is able to ensure the maximum breeding potential out of its high quality band of broodmares.

As well as the stud facilities Morning Rise also features three farm houses and a guest house. An experienced live on manager ensures all horses on the property get the best of care.
