His initial moderate success with Surefoot drove Colin to expand his operations and he set up stables called 'Surefoot Lodge' at Semaphore. He won his first Adelaide trainers' premiership in 1956 but decided he wanted to expand his operations into breeding winners as well.
Colin chose a place in the Barossa Valley approximately 80 kilometres north-east of Adelaide, with many people saying it was too far out of the metropolitan area to succeed.
A syndicate of people was formed to purchase the property known as Lindsay Park, a 800-hectare property of very rich pasture land and superb paddocks. The centrepiece of the property is a magnificent 38-room mansion built in 1840 by George Fife Angas from sandstone and marble quarried on the property.
In making the move Colin lost several owners and promising horses, reducing his stable from 40 to 16 horses.
He officially began training there on 1 August 1970 and over the next 29 years created one of the most successful breeding and training establishments in the world.
A sign of his success is the world record 10 individual winners in a day, a feat he achieved on 23 January 1982.

Famous quotes containing the words success and/or initial:
“Its not a field, I think, for people who need to have success every day: if you cant live with a nightly sort of disaster, you should get out. I wouldnt describe myself as lacking in confidence, but I would just say that ... the ghosts you chase you never catch.”
—John Malkovich (b. 1953)
“No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes. On the contrary, whatever the punishment, once a specific crime has appeared for the first time, its reappearance is more likely than its initial emergence could ever have been.”
—Hannah Arendt (19061975)
