About Big Sky Ranch

About Big Sky Ranch

We are delighted to have been able to acquire a farm with more than 135 years of thoroughbred racehorse heritage. Big Sky Ranch (formerly known as the Gary Player Horse Stud) was founded by the Ellis family in 1883 as a horse stud. The Ellis family bred numerous champions and studbook dynasties on the farm including Prestisimo, Hey Presto, Magic Charm, Magic Link, Mowgli, Lavonia, Pussmoth, Preston Pam and Pipes of Pam.Gary Player acquired the farm in 1974. His personal involvement with the stud and winning philosophy produced Creator, My Advantage, Amajuba, Kadarko, Foreign Source

Big sky ranch never fails to impress from the bedding to the great English breakfasts. It is set in a secluded green oasis in the middle of the arid karoo. An added bonus is the simple 3 course dinner available and an honesty bar.
