Sire: Ascot Classic Silk AI (Westacre Concerto UK dec x Ascot Satin Doll)
Dam: Ascot Lisa Marie AI (Strindesdale Matador UK x Downland Solitaire imp UK)
In December 2008, after the news of our own colt’s inability to serve as our sire, we purchased the sensational colt Ascot Magnum Silk from the Ascot Stud in Victoria. This colt represents years of diligent breeding by Melanie and the breeding we most admired out of the UK. Not only did his breeding stand up, so did his siblings, being a full brother to Ascot Choir Master and the sensational filly Ascot Elizabeth Arden who is continuing her showring successes. His dam is a multi Royal show champion under saddle and his sire has produced countless Royal show winners.
Magnum is an exceptional colt not only chosen for his breeding but also his exceptional looks, movement and temperament. This divine little colt will cross superbly with our mares and we anticipate some extraordinary stock.
His debut show saw him follow on his families footstep.

Thorne Park Pony Stud
Sarnau Victory (imp) x Glyndebourne Minnelli (SOD Keston Royal Occasion imp)
Morticia is our beautiful Keston Royal Occasion Grand-daughter. We were very fortunate to be able to obtain this mare from John & Janet Petty of the Glyndebourne Stud.
Tish is a 14.1 1/2hh Liver Chestnut Riding Pony mare. She is out of the Champion Large Pony Melbourne Royal winner Glyndebourne Minelli and she is a half sister to Janevelyn Hearts of Fire who is making a huge name for himself on the East Coast show circuit. After a short ridden career Tish was retired and has produced four beautiful fillies for us Thorne Parks Capri and Thorne Parks Romany Rose both being Royal show Champions. Tish then produced an absolutely divine filly to Oakvale Serenade called Thorne Parks Heavens Above. Tish was AI’ed to Rotherwood Peter Pan (UK) and has produced us in 2007 a spectacular bay filly who will be retained by the to secure this rare and sought after bloodline. Her name is Thorne Parks Little Darling

Some influential lines in her pedigree include Lechlade Quince, Bwlch Zephyr, Bwlch Valentino, Carolinas Cats Whiskers as well as other famous lines such as Trellech and Sarnau.
Anna is 12.1 3/4hh and she is a lovely dark Chestnut Riding Pony Mare. Anna has the most extreme front and movement to die for!!! She has produced three magnificent foals already including Blandford Waterloo (Kirreway Ambition) a gelding who is ready to commence his ridden career, a colt by LJS Limited Edition iiu who is now standing at stud in Sydney and the lovely liver chestnut filly that we lost.

Kinlieth Prima Donna
Cennen Pioneer imp x Starlight Kingdom TB
Prim was purchased for Stacey Nash by her Mum Sharon and Helen. She was purchased from Ann Smiley and Veronica Manifold of Victoria.
Prim is a 14.2 1/2hh rich mahogany bay mare with the most amazing movement and the most divine face. Before traveling to Western Australia she had won Runner up National Newcomer at the National Riding Pony. Prim carries all the bloodlines we wished as a future broodmare that we had lost with the infertility of Pendragon. Prim had two successful seasons with us until injury forced us to retire her. Prim has produced us a lovely bay colt Thorne Parks Poetry by Rathowen True Blue (Courtland Boy Blue x Rathowen Russet) who has consistently proven himself by winning a broad sash at every show he has attended and recently come with Supreme of Supreme’s at a recent breed show as a two year old colt.
Primadonna foaled a superb dark brown colt with a blaze and two front white socks on the 8th of November. This super colt will be available for sale upon weaning to the best of show homes.
Prim is currently empty but will be covered by Penmain Heir Apparent for a 2011 foal
