Little Avondale 

Home to one of NZ’s leading and proven stallions Per Incanto (by Winx’s sire Street Cry), exciting 2018 recruit Time Test (a son of the legendary Dubawi), and the Group 1 Blue Diamond winner Nadeem, Little Avondale are proud sponsors of the Little Avondale Lowland Stakes.

With the race named after one of the finest racemares produced by the Williams family in 79 years of breeding thoroughbreds in the Wairarapa, Lowland is part of a storied history of the oldest family-owned stud in New Zealand.

And the legacy continues with Per Incanto as NZ's 2019 2nd Leading Sire at Stud, 22 stakes winners in 18 months including 2 Group1 winners and the Time Test first Southern Hempisphere foals blowing away New Zealands greatest throughbred judges. 2020 on the track and 2021 in the ring promises some fireworks for all the right reasons! 

From breeding through to the track, Sam, Catriona and their Little Avondale team offer a comprehensive service which includes yearling preparation, racing syndication, foaling and agistment services.
