The Warwick Farm stable that housed the partnership between Sydney racing legend Fred Peisah and trainer Billy Prain for more than three decades has been listed for sale.
Prain trained Pesiah’s charges at 11 Manning Street for 31 years, producing Group race winners for jockeys including two-time Melbourne Cup victor Corey Brown.
Having started his five-decade career in racing as a jockey, Prain retired in 2018, the same year former solicitor Pesiah sold the Lomar Park Stud near Macarthur he’d operated for 50 years.
CBRE’s Andrew Sukkar and Alex Mirzaian are taking the 2,042sqm Warwick Farm site to market on behalf of the Pesiah family, with Expressions of Interest invited before 4pm AEST on August 5.
The Manning Street property, forever etched in Sydney racing folklore, is being offered with vacant possession, and features a renovated three-bedroom house, 16 stables and a separate feed room.
It is part of a precinct near Warwick Farm racecourse that is currently zoned R2 Low Density Residential, permitting subdivision, but set to be rezoned B4 Mixed Use to allow high-rise residential flats with a 17m height limit.
Within Sydney’s thriving south west, Manning Street backs onto Warwick Farm train station and is just off the Hume Highway, with Liverpool’s CBD, to-be-upgraded hospital, schools and Westfields all in close proximity.
Liverpool will also be the home to Sydney’s second international airport at Badgerys Creek, which is due to open in 2026.
“Developments such as the $740 million hospital upgrade and new Western Sydney International Airport underline Liverpool’s growth and standing as Sydney’s third CBD,” he said.
“Warwick Farm’s racing precinct will be revitalised over the coming years and play a key role in supporting the population growth that will follow the delivery of major infrastructure projects in the area.
“We’re expecting strong interest from speculative investors, owner occupiers and developers who can see the opportunities presented by the precinct rezoning.”
