About

Nestled in the rich dairy farming region of Waikato in New Zealand, Curraghmore has developed into a top class nursery for raising great racehorses.

Established by Gordon Cunningham, a grandson of the legendary Irish trainer Michael Collins, in 1994 Curraghmore derives its name from Curraghmore House and Gardens in Port Law, Co. Waterford in Ireland.

Growing up in Waterford Cunningham, was in awe of this property and often remarked that it would be the perfect place for raising horses. And so in 1994 he established his own Curraghmore, originally situated on 160 acres in Ngahinapouri.

In 2008 a second farm, nestled in the countryside of Te Awamutu was purchased and initially used in conjunction with the Ngahinapouri property. In 2016 Curraghmore centralised it's operation at Te Awamutu and now includes a full sale preparation facility also.

The gently rolling contours and lush pastures of Curraghmore provide future racehorses the best possible opportunity to grow and develop to their full potential.

At Curraghmore the focus has always been and will always be on quality. We've developed a reputation for producing sound and durable racehorses, that continue to do us proud on the racetracks of Australasia and beyond.
