New South Wales Breeders Thank’s The Inglis Family
Thoroughbred Breeders New South Wales, on behalf of all breeders in
NSW and throughout Australia, present a plaque to William Inglis and Son
as a mark of our appreciation of the company, its directors and staff
on the opening of Riverside stables in 2018.
Riverside stables, is a magnificent modern facility to house and showcase
our horses for sale and will benefit many generations of breeders into
the future.
The concept of having a sale ring within a five star hotel is truly
revolutionary and Riverside will be a lasting tribute to the vision of the
Inglis Company and represents an enormous investment not only in the
future of Inglis, but also in the Australian thoroughbred industry.

We were saddened greatly to learn
of the death of TBNSW Life Member
Don Storey after a long illness at the
age of 86 on May 15.
Don Storey served on the Board of TBNSW for more
than 30 years, filling the role of Treasurer for much of
that period.
Founder of a still thriving legal practice at Parramatta,
Don Storey rendered great service to TBNSW, his
knowledge and experience as a successful small breeder
combined with his legal expertise proving very valuable.
Don and his vivacious late wife Val were popular
regulars at Sydney race meetings for more than 40
years with Don also a long serving and much respected
racing administrator as a Board member of the
innovative Sydney Turf Club.
While only a relatively small breeder, Don Storey
achieved sustained success, first coming to prominence
as an owner/breeder in the mid-1970s through the
deeds of brilliant, multiple stakes-winning two-yearold filly Rainbeam (Vain), a descendant of the 1945 VRC
Melbourne Cup winner Rainbird.

Don Storey later sold Rainbeam to fellow Sydney Turf
Club director, the late Jim Fleming, who bred from
her the high class performer Centaine (Century), who
became a leading sire in New Zealand, but he retained
other Rainbird descendants who produced for him in
1980 top two-year-old Been There (Boucher) and some
years later in 2007 the outstanding sprinter Rain Affair
(Commands), earner of more than $1.55 million racing
in his famous black and gold colours.
