Yirribee was established in 1985 by Rod Woodhouse and Ian Walsh, and was officially opened in 1986 by Darren Binskin and David Aitken.
Yirribee Pacing Stud has since grown to be one of the leaders in the Australian Standardbred breeding industry. Rod and Ian were business partners in an unrelated industry and shared a common interest as trainers and drivers. Ian retired from his interest in Yirribee in 2009 and sadly has since passed away after a long battle with illness.
Yirribee Pacing Stud is situated close to Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia and encompasses over 400 acres of rich alluvial river flats which is all under irrigation and has extensive frontage to the Murrumbidgee River.
The purchase of US stallion Jeremy Lobell to stand his first season in Australia in 1986 combined with the picturesque and fertile environment allowed Yirribee to establish itself very early as leader in the breeding industry. From very early on it has been considered by the Yirribee team that the very best of care combined with the best possible environment would a recipe for success.
