Merricks Station is committed to assisting you horse reach their peak performance.

Having had a long and fruitful association with trainers Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra from EZ Racing at Flemington, Merricks Station has been proudly spelling their elite athletes for a number of years. Trainer, Lloyd Kennewell has found a home for his gallopers to spell, including Group 1 Moir Stakes winning mare, Viddora recently enjoying a well-earned rest on the Peninsula. Merricks Station has some exciting young horses in training with Lloyd.

Merricks Station provides thoroughbred agistment and spelling for other leading trainers and looks forward to developing these relationships more as we expand in the future.


The Merricks Station silks and brand represent the proud heritage of the area and the modern future of the operation.

The ‘M’ brand is designed to resemble stable barns and a horse with blinkers. The lime green base with the white brand can be compared to the bright white fencing along the lush, green pastures framing the immaculate Mornington Peninsula property.

Formally, part of the Cole Estate, and held in their name for generations, Merricks Station was named to remember the property’s past; both a cattle station and having the old Mornington Peninsula railway line travelling along a corner of the property.


Our success on the racetrack is credit to the professional team of like-minded people that share the racing passion.
