Bloodstock

The Kelt family has been involved in Bloodstock sale and purchase, breeding and racing for four generations dating back to MJ Kelt who raced horses with Sam’s father, Gordon. Gordon and Sam bred, purchased and raced horses together and now Sam and his family are purchasing horses to race together. They currently own three two year olds purchased specifically to race throughout Australasia in Classic races.

The Story of Gordon's

 
Sam and his father, Gordon, purchased the Dash / Kaapstad yearling filly at the 1999 Karaka Premier yearling sale. This was the last commercial transaction that Sam and Gordon did together as Gordon fell ill and passed away shortly after.
 
The filly was a descendent of the famous Agricolet family which Gordon had been involved with over a number of decades. Agricolet produced many group performing horses all of which were named after various drinks and included Schenley, Tang, Lucozade, Schnapps, Seagers and others.
 
Sam named Gordon’s after his father and Gordon’s gin to reflect both his relationship with his father and to continue the drinks name dynasty.
 
Gordon had been a steward of Hawke’s Bay Jockey Club for over two decades and held an enormous ambition to win the Hawke’s Bay Cup. His previous best effort was a second with Dark Burn.
 
Gordon’s won the 2002 Group II Hawke’s Bay Cup.
