About Us


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 picturesque Red Hill. With ten state of the art stabling facilities, irrigated pasture, horse mesh fencing, posts and rails 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.

Amongst the many outstanding individuals bred on Morning Rise, it is perhaps fitting that the very first foal bred on the farm, Break A Theory, is an ultra promising two time winner in Japan who race fans can expect to hear even more of in the upcoming Japanese season.

And with Morning Rise Stud buying into a nice selection of race horses including; Group One winning filly Yosei, Melbourne Cup Winner Fiorente, Glencadem Gold and Julienas it would seem there is plenty more in store for Morning Rise Stud.
