This year marks the twentieth anniversary of the Swettenham property at Ngambie.

To take advantage of the newly launched VOBIS in 1995, the Sangster family relocated many of their stallions from the NSW Collingrove property to Victoria. Renowned sire of precocious speedsters, Rory’s Jester (Crown Jester – Rory’s Rocket, by Roan Rocket), was one of the first to stand at the new property, originally named Collingrove Victoria. When the family asked the late Bill Stutt about buying land in Victoria, he said “You want to be north of the divide and on the river” to which Robert Sangster quipped “And next to a vineyard.”
