“Pancho” Francisco Jimenez - Farm Manager
Pancho is another of our secret weapons. He has been at the farm for the past six years and has done a fantastic job the agronomy, pasture improvements, irrigation, weed & pest control and maintenance of the 1200m turf track.
A recently inducted racehorse owner he now has the bug and will no doubt be wrecked for life.
FROM: Pancagua, CHILE
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THE FARM: Working with a great team of people and getting satisfaction from seeing the property developments we have undertaken over the past six years and planning the next steps from here. I love seeing something I've built in action and seeing the horses happy around the farm with great pasture in the paddocks and facilities.
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THE SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS: I love living in the Southern Highlands, it's pretty peaceful, the locals are really friendly and everyone knows everyone else. I guess it's a pretty affluent area, so the cafes and bars are top notch too.

FROM: Hawkes Bay, NZ
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THE FARM: The ducks in the dam, the porch, the ute, the open fire in the Pinnaroo Homestead & the buggy.
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT SOUTHERN HIGHLANDS: Flash Tough one, probably the porch, the birds & new food. Maggie - Look, I'm a natural born killer. Show me a rodent and I'll show you something with a limited life span. There's certainly a lot of new targets over here - can't wait to get my teeth into it.
FAVOURITE THING ABOUT AUSTRALIA: Flash - Have to be those good looking Aussie bitches. Maggie - Well, I feel a connection to my Aussie Terrier heritage that was just missing in NZ, y'know?
