TRELAWNEY STUD was established near Cambridge, New Zealand, in 1930 by Seton Otway and continued in Otway family ownership until the 1990s, when it was purchased by the Taylor family. The stud's first, and biggest success came from the purchase of the Son-in-Law colt, FOXBRIDGE, who only ran eleven times in England at ages three and four, and won once, when he took the Liverpool Atlantic Cup (1-1/4 miles) at age three. At age four he was purchased by Otway, and in New Zealand, with only two crops racing in 1939-40, he was sixth on the leading sires list. After that he led the sires list for eleven successive seasons, by far the most successful stallion ever to stand in the country, with numerous classic winners; he was later leading broodmare sire in the country for a record eleven times. ALCIMEDES was the next good stallion, with two winners of the Melbourne Cup among his progeny, and leading sire in Australia in 1966-67. KINGDOM BAY was another New Zealand champion sire to stand at Trelawney, whose offspring won more than eleven million dollars. --PE
