David Ellis Industry leader as yearling buyer and syndicator. Principal of te Akau StudIt is my pleasure to categorically state my support for a company that I believe the City of Hamilton and indeed the wider Waikato region can be very proud of.

Waikato Equine Veterinary Centre (Division of Hamilton Veterinary Services) has been carrying out my equine work since 1981. Since 1987, Dr Douglas Black has been Te Akau racing Stable and Stud’s veterinary surgeon – a role that he has executed with total professionalism and expertise at all times during this long association.

Waikato Equine Veterinary Centre (Division of Hamilton Veterinary Services) is a well organised practice that comprises highly skilled veterinary surgeons and support staff. As a practice, it also stays in touch with worldwide developments in equine veterinary practice meaning our horses are receiving the best care possible.
