About Us

The Byerley Park complex is owned by a father and son who share a common passion and interest in thoroughbred horse racing.

Daniel Nakhle
Daniel says of the exciting Byerley Park development: "This is the first project for us with a mix of business and real pleasure. " Daniel graduated from Auckland University with a conjoint degree in Law and Commerce. Apart from property investment and development, the Nakhles also have interests in restaurants, child-care centres, motels and an aluminium joinery factory. They also own a small band of broodmares and some 25 race and younger horses.

Elias Nakhle
Elias has a real love of animals and especially horses. He came to New Zealand on holiday in 1969 and immediately fell in love with the country and its people. He owned orchards and shops in his native Lebanon but turned his hand to building upon his arrival to New Zealand. Very much self made, working from the ground up, Elias made a permanent base in Manukau where he and his wife have three boys, the oldest being Daniel and does not often miss a race meeting where his horses are carrying his sky blue on peacock blue colours.
