Aldebaran Park is ideally situated in the heart of the Goulburn Valley Stud region in Victoria on The Goulburn Valley Highway approximately 10 minutes north of Nagambie and 20 minutes south of Shepparton with direct access to Browns Road from the Goulburn Valley Highway. The farm consists of 2 properties of almost 150 acres of pastures with irrigation and water rights to the nearby East Goulburn Channel.
 
Established in 2004, Initial construction at the property included an individually designed shed and barn facility, vet room and office facilities along to AQIS certified standards with an extensive paddock and fencing program complimented with the planting of some 5,000 trees and the installation of an automated sprinkler system to the 20 main paddocks. 
 
These initial facilities were then complimented by the completion of a ten stall yearling barn, roundyard and staff accommodation areas along with the house, horse walker, additional stallion and AQIS certified quarantine facilities and new and redeveloped mares and agistment paddocks over some 15 acres of land along with the planting of an additional 2500 trees.
 
Since 2015 extensive paddock rehabilitation and soil improvement has been undertaken along with the upgrading of the irrigation system. These improvements have seen paddocks flourish in the off seasons and with the continued pastoral improvement we have undertaken we are sure that this will continue to have an impact on the success of the rearing of our progeny.
 
2016 saw the completion of roof structures to the horse walking area and a covered vaulted roof structure to the stalled and specific Yearling Barn area.
2017 saw the completion of another fully enclosed 12 stall yearling barn complete with tack rooms and storage facilities along with improved and reconfigured foaling yards. 
 
Aldebaran Park continues to develop and improve its infrastructure as we go forward and we strive to be a Standardbred property with state of the art facilities which allows the property to be an operation of International standard. 
 
All development compliments the objective of the team at Aldebaran Park - to provide individual care to horses and to set standards of quality of horse agistment and stud duties at international levels.
 
With in excess of 35 Trotting Mares in residence the Breeding season in 2018/2019 has been extremely busy. Our 2018 Foals have arrived and we are excited at the opportunities which will be afforded to purchasers of our Foals at yearling sales in 2020. 
 
Solid patronage of our resident stallions - second season Group 1 USA winning Aldebaran Walkabout USA T3 1.52.2 (Muscle Hill USA - Letsjustalkboutme USA ) and Australasias No. 1 colonial stallion Skyvalley NZ T 1.56.2 ( Muscles Yankee USA - Chiolas Lass NZ) - has been just reward for these stallions and no doubt breeders will reap the rewards with their progeny in the coming years. 
 
We look forward with anticipation to the continued preparation of our yearlings for the upcoming 2019 Prydes Easifeed Australasian  Premier Trotting Sale in March in Victoria which sees us offering 18 superbly bred progeny with bloodlines and genetic opportunities available to those who wish to race the horses and in the case if the Fillies, for those who may wish to breed. We are equally excited with our 3 foals in New Zealand who will be offered at the 2019 NZB standardbred sale in Christchurch in February 2019.
