With a view to the Bluestone Stables, The Stables Room was traditionally reserved for family members and guests that were most interested in horse sports such as polo, hunting, eventing, and racing. The Barr Smith and Abbott families had a strong affinity for a range of horse sports, especially racing horses, having owned Thackery, a two-time Grand Annual winner, and part-ownership of Gurners Lane, the 1982 Melbourne & Caufield Cup winner.

Mount William Station has had a strong connection to horse racing from the start. The Chirnside brothers (who established the Station in 1842), also owned the race horse, Haricot, the 1874 Melbourne Cup winner.

Mount William Station also birthed and stabled Alice Hawthorn, a decorated mare who raced Veno, the fastest horse in New South Wales, in a race that pioneered the Melbourne Cup.

MWS-Illustration-polo

Robert Barr Smith played in the first recorded polo game in Adelaide in 1878. Since then, the Abbott and Barr Smith family have had a longstanding connection to Australian polo. In 1985, Charles Abbott was the president of the Victorian and Australian Polo Councils and hosted royals Lady Diana and now, King Charles in Werribee.
