Tony McEvoy is planning for the future with a new stable complex at Ballarat.

The facility will run in conjunction with his base at Angaston in South Australia and his current Victorian stable at Flemington.

But with training to be fazed out at Caulfield and fearing the end of training at Flemington, McEvoy has decided to develop a complex at Ballarat that could potentially accommodate 100 horses.

Weather permitting, McEvoy hopes it can be completed within 10 months.

“I’ve been thinking about this for a long time,” McEvoy said.

“The Caulfield trainers have been given a timeline and I believe it will only be a matter of time when the Flemington trainers will get the same.

“There’s that component plus there’s the uncertainty of what the government is doing in Adelaide.

“I’m finding it more difficult to get my owners to take their horses there until something’s done.

“I just think you’ve got to plan for the future, and Ballarat’s a fantastic facility.”

McEvoy says the training property, the old Lindsay Park Racing stables now known as Kildalton Park, at Angaston in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, will still form an integral part of the new operation.

“My investment there is still very large. It will keep going,” he said.

“It’s dear to my heart that place.

“There’ll be a reduction in numbers I’d say but there will still be horses raced from there.

“The hills of Angaston are famous for putting a base on horses.

“It has done it successfully for years and I’m not going to give up on that.”

McEvoy said the Ballarat stable was presently a blank canvas and he was still deciding on the number of boxes with the complex to have “everything known to man”.

When complete the Ballarat stable will be overseen by McEvoy’s son Calvin.
