About Emirates Park
The two-state Emirates Park operation is the vision of His Excellency Nasser Lootah, a Dubai-based businessman introduced to Australian thoroughbred racing and breeding in the mid-1980s.
His Excellency Nasser Lootah's initial foray into the domestic bloodstock industry was the purchase of a long-established thoroughbred property located at Murrurundi directly on the New England Highway in the Upper Hunter Valley. Previously known as Blandford Park Stud, the property had been home to a succession of successful stallions including Twig Moss (Fr), the Champion Sire of Australia in 1985/86.
Emirates Park has long since gained a reputation for breeding outstanding racetrack performers. These include the likes of FAT AL, THESEO, SHAMEKHA, COUNTY TYRONE, DASH FOR CASH and ELEGANT FASHION, racehorses which were conceived, foaled and reared by the stud before triumphing at the very highest level of thoroughbred competition.
The past two decades have laid the foundations for a very bright future waiting ahead and the Emirates Park breeding and racing operation appears certain to prosper for many more years to come. His Excellency Nasser Lootah's son Hussain is taking a very keen interest in all of the outfit's affairs and has become a regular visitor to these shores.
