Passing of Basil Nolan Jnr

Wednesday, 7 November 2018

The Brisbane Racing Club is saddened to hear of the passing of Basil Nolan Jnr late yesterday evening, Tuesday 6 November. 

A well-known identity in racing and thoroughbred breeding circles, Basil was a Brisbane Racing Club Member who ran the well-known Raheen Stud alongside his father Basil Nolan Snr, mother Diane and wife Natalie.

The stud is known as one of Queensland’s most successful thoroughbred nurseries, selling horses up to $480,000, including at the Magic Millions Sales at the Gold Coast.

In late May this year, the Brisbane Racing Club hosted an event "Evening with the Nolans" to highlight the family's contribution to the racing and breeding industries in Queensland. 

The respected community man and thoroughbred breeder is survived by his wife Natalie and four young children.

Brisbane Racing Club send their condolences to the Nolan family.
