Nanoli Stud is the fulfillment of a life-long dream.

Set up by Khushroo Dhunjibhoy in 1994, the Stud today is the embodiment of one man's far-sight, vision and dedication to an ideal.

Situated on the banks of the Indrayani River, the Stud is superbly laid out in over 100 hectares of peaceful and verdant sylvan countryside. This carefully selected natural backdrop provides the perfect locale for the breeding of champion thoroughbreds.

Employing the latest methods and technology of modern thoroughbred breeding in harmonious conjunction with age-old traditional wisdom and horse sense, the Stud has already proved itself by its production of spectacular winners.

Nanoli Stud's commitment to quality has kept its number of foals lower than the foals produced at older, more established stud farms; and the success of this approach is indisputable. The Stud's meteoric rise to the upper echelons of the Indian Turf Industry in the comparatively short time since its inception is a matter of record.

In 2003 alone, colts and fillies bred at Nanoli Stud won 20 out of an All-India total of 94 graded races. This is an amazing record considering the lower numbers of racehorses produced at Nanoli Stud as compared to other establishments.

This thoughtfully designed nursery has every facility one may expect on a modern stud farm - comfortable spacious stabling, extensive lush paddocks, an equine hospital, an enormous covered shed for exercise in inclement weather, indoor and outdoor walking rings, an undulating sand track, a turf track, an aqua-treadmill, mechanized horse walkers, and every convenience required to keep a thoroughbred healthy and content.

Nanoli Stud takes the trouble to hire the finest staff members available. The welfare of its personnel is attended to so very well, that every individual on the Farm is inspired to efficiently and happily give off their best at all times.

The Stud is managed by a dynamic team of professionals, with inputs coming in from various international quarters.

The finest bloodstock is sourced from around the world. The foundation stallion was Fappiano's son, Cristofori [USA], whose stud career was unfortunately cut short when he was in his prime. Despite this, he was able to produce no less than 11 millionaires from just 110 foals!

In recent years, Nanoli Stud has acquired a number of new stallions. The Stud also enjoyed the services of the highly successful Glory of Dancer, who we unfortunately lost in April 2011. He was the sire of consecutive Indian Derby winners Hotstepper & Antonios, and his other top flight performers included Beautiful Stranger, Adrian, Blurr, Dancing Dynamite, Cabriolet, Glorious Breaker, Onassis, Kyles of Bute & Juventus to name only a few.

The Stud today stands the only Australian stallion in India, Kingda Ka and the Bob Baffert trained Midnight Interlude, winner of the Santa Anita Derby Gr.1. Nanoli continues to use the services of Western Aristocrat (Mr Greeley ex Aristocratic Lady, Kris S) & Whatsthescript (Royal Applause ex Grizel) both of whom stand at the Nanoli managed Capricorn Stud near Pune.
