Over the years the Laing racing has been involved in some ripper horses including Blue Diamond and Coolmore winner Star Witness. Gai Waterhouse classic winners Magic Alibi and Dorf Command (who broke the 35 year old Randwick track Record only to be beaten!), and The Rosebud winner One More Grand. More recently Glenlogan Park Winner, Peace Force and our old buddy Red Excitement who is the winner of 13 races and over 1 million dollars in prize money.
