Living Legends, located just outside Melbourne, has been established to bring retired champion race horses back to the public. It is situated at Woodlands Historic Park, an ideal location for a family outing or day trip.
Living Legends is home to some of Australia's finest retired racehorses. The latest star to join the Living Legends will be Apache Cat. Sportsbet has pledged to sponsor his retirement to the International Home of Rest for Champion Horses at Oaklands Junction.
“Apache Cat has long been a fan favourite with his outstanding record and striking looks, and we’re delighted we can help in a small way to bring this champion back to the public,” said Sportsbet.com.au’s Haydn Lane.
Horses residing at Living Legends past & present: Apache Cat | Better Loosen Up | Bomber Bill | Brew | Bullish Luck | Doriemus | Fields of Omagh | Might and Power | Northerly | Paris Lane | Regal Roller | Rogan Josh | Saintly | Silent Witness
It's a rare opportunity to interact with some of the greatest to race on the Australian Turf. Set in a fantastic country environment, you can enjoy a picnic lunch among the River Red gum trees and visit the historic homestead.
If you're planning a function, Living Legends is the perfect venue for an unforgettable social event. Located just 5 minutes from Melbourne's Tullamarine airport, the beautiful grounds are ideal for a marquee with views to the retired champions and Mt Macedon.
It is also an outstanding Melbourne location for photography, film and television projects.
Living Legends is open to the public seven days a week from 10.00am to 4:00pm, with daily public tours of the horses at 11:00am and 2:00pm.
