Westbury Park is located near the heart of the Western Australian breeding industry between Pinjarra and Coolup. Owned and operated by Phil and Lindy Ibbotson, the stud is home to promising young sire My Admiration who has made an immediate impact with several city winners from his first crop in Perth.

My Admiration was a Group 1 sprinter in Hong Kong and is bred on the same Encosta de Lago – Redoute’s Choice cross as Zoustar. The Ibbotsons purchased My Admiration as part of a syndicate comprising leading local breeders Graham Daws (Dawson Stud), Alan & Sue Olive (Gold Front Thoroughbreds), Kevin Berry (Impressive Racing) and Alan Macalister (Redwood Park).

Westbury Park yearlings are also climbing the leader-boards at local and interstate auctions. They commanded up to $240,000 at the 2017 Gold Coast Magic Millions Sale and the Perth market has been just as productive through its involvement in Western Breeders’ Alliance.

Launched in 2015, Western Breeders Alliance is a partnership consisting of Westbury Park, Darling View Thoroughbreds and Einoncliff Park. Its first yearlings were offered at the 2015 Perth Magic Millions for turnover exceeding $223,000 and a year later it had reached $890,000.

Phil Ibbotson is also Chairman of Pinjarra Race Club and a Committeeman of Thoroughbred Breeders WA. He can be contacted by broodmare and racehorse owners and trainers for further information on 0429 341 211.
