The founding partners of “Bred In The Blue” are: The very well respected John Coffey of Patrician Park & Alabar Bloodstock fame. John is undoubtedly one of the most well respected names in the harness racing industry through not only his long standing association with Alabar Bloodstock, but with his very own farm in North Dandalup WA, Patrician Park which was established in 1982.

John has been involved in Harness Racing for well over 30 years, and in fact, Patrician Park has been the only continual vendor at the Perth Yearling sales since 1982. John’s knowledge in relation to all things breeding is simply second to none whether it be mares, yearlings or the requirements needed for a successful stallion, John has the knowledge and experience to steer you on the right track.


Joanne Andersen makes up the second half of Bred In The Blue. Joanne is the very passionate, President of Harness Breeders NSW and resides on a small acreage property in the Hawkesbury region in NSW.  Joanne was previously the NSW Rep for Alabar Bloodstock, which saw her develop some wonderful working relationships with many breeders and owners throughout the state. It has also allowed her to gain invaluable knowledge in working alongside John Coffey. Joanne is relatively new to the breeding game having only commenced about 9 years ago. Today Jo and her husband Brett breed anywhere between 4-10 mares annually.


They both sell progeny at the various yearling sales and usually retain one or two to race themselves.


Should you be wanting to sell your broodmare & foal or your current race mare because you are not “a breeder” or perhaps some advice on purchasing a stallion or future mates for your mare or even selling an unwanted stallion service we can help, so be sure to give us a call or drop us an email at info@bredintheblue.com.au
