About Us

Taghadoe Stud is truly a family run business and long time dream with Peter and Alison Burke providing high end bloodstock care and individual attention to each horse and client. 


Peter and Alison purchased the property in 2015 and Peter chose to make the farm his full time job in 2016.  Peter has over 20 years experience in the Thoroughbred breeding industry at both large and boutique farms.  He has worked internationally at farms including Derrinstown in Ireland and Highview in New Zealand while in Australia working for Lindsay Park Stud, Reavill Farm, Rothwell Park, and Bhima Thoroughbreds. Peter has played a variety of roles throughout his time at these properties which has allowed him to acquire a happy medium from his experiences.



Alison Burke is a 2005 graduate of North Carolina State University, College of Veterinary Medicine and has made Australia her home since 2006.  She has worked on various Thoroughbred studs since 2009 and was a resident vet at Arrowfield Stud for 5 wonderful years. Alison provides the veterinary services for the farm, including reproductive scanning of the mares.
