Shocking wins the 2009 Melbourne Cup. Congratulations to Mark Kavanagh on his win.

Since 2004 pelletised straw bedding has been used successfully around the world. Utilising product imported from Europe, successful trials were completed with numerous Australian trainers and studs during 2007. Following the success of these trials, a production facility was committed to in Finley NSW. Since the commissioning of this plant in September 2008 pelletised straw bedding has been supplied across Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and Singapore with thousands of horses currently using the bedding.
