Gainsborough Lodge is a long established thoroughbred nursery located on the outskirts of Toowoomba, Queensland, on the famous Darling Downs.
The family name of Richards has been synonymous with Gainsborough Lodge for more than two and a half decades. It was prominent Queenslander Col Richards who acquired the property in 1991 and proved to be its patriarchal figure until his passing in early 2015.
Col’s daughter Melinda now oversees the property with the invaluable assisstance of her husband, Craig Wallace, and long-serving stud manager, Christine Frohloff, who is responsible for its day-to-day running.
Gainsborough Lodge has built an enviable reputation within the Australian thoroughbred racing and breeding industry and can be associated — in one form or another — with 1000s of individual winners. We hope to be able to assist you in either breeding, rearing or racing your future winners with the same degree of satisfaction as we have enjoyed in the past.
