Troy Stephens will return to the Yulong Investments fold as the racing and breeding operation’s expansion continues.

Stephens has been appointed Yulong’s racing manager and will join the team in time for the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in January.

“It’s an organisation I know very well, having worked there for two years, and I’m also extremely passionate about Yulong,” he said.

“The growth Yulong has had globally in a relatively short period is already amazing, and it’s great to get back on the team and do my part.

“I eagerly await being on the Gold Coast in January.”

Newly appointed Yulong general manager Vin Cox said Stephens was rejoining Yulong during a hectic period for the farm.

“We look forward to welcoming Troy back to the Yulong team,” Cox said.

“He is well-known and will add to what is an exciting and busy future for the farm.”

Yulong will consign more than 200 yearlings during Australia’s 2024 round of sales, with 43 heading to the Magic Millions ahead of a record draft of 77 at the Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne.
