Chris Kent has joined Twin Hills Stud as its Stud Manager. He will be responsible for the farm’s operations and the management of its staff and horses, which include the stallions Smart Missile, Peltzer and the 2022 Blue Diamond winner Daumier.
Chris has a wealth of experience in the thoroughbred industry, having worked for Bellerive Stud, Greg Bennett and Lanwades Stud in the United Kingdom. Most recently he has held senior positions as the Operations Manager at Bluegum Farm and the Manager of Noorilim Park in Victoria. Under his guidance Noorilim Park consigned the top priced yearling at the 2023 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale, the I Am Invincible filly out of Special Lover that sold for $1.1 million.
“We are delighted that Chris has joined us to be the Stud Manager of Twin Hills and that he and Catherine and their two boys will be making it their home” said Olly Tait.
“Chris has a wonderful track record and brings both experience and enthusiasm to our business”.
Chris Kent commented “Twin Hills is a farm with wonderful land, facilities and history. Olly and Amber Tait have made a real impact since they purchased the farm in 2017 and I am looking forward to leading the team at the farm and working with its many great clients”.
