Alfred Grant

The Basics

Categories: Owners/Breeders
Region: South East Queensland



A land developer he had a dream of creating a major racing empire in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He believed in buying top quality fillies to race and then later out them to his sires at his stud Gainsborough Lodge. Unfortunately, an economic downturn saw Grant forced to sell his horses in a fire sale like Queensland had never seen. But he should be remembered as a man of vision and he had many outstanding racehorses including the QTC Derby winner Intrepid Clipper. His other good horses included Foi de Boheme, Belle of Burgundy, Wild Irish Rose, Setaria, Brisbane Bell and Foundland.
