Daley's Playrio

Well respected northern Australian campdraft genetics now available for ALL Australia.

[Ben Hall & Daley's Playrio, Normanton 2014.  Photo by Purple Fairy Imagery.]

Ben, Jaye, Madison and Wyatt Hall operate Bibil, a property near Longreach in Central Western Queensland.

“We breed and sell Brahman Bulls, have a crossbred commercial cattle herd, and breed, draft and sell our own horses. We believe in what we breed, and they must prove themselves to us.

As a stallion PLAYRIO has to play by the same rules, we make no exception. If we didn't like what he is, how he looks, how he performs, how he behaves and how he breeds, we wouldn't still have him.” 
Ben & Jaye Hall.

Service Fee:

  • $2,200 inc GST.
  • Chilled semen available.

Ben & Jaye try to make Playrio accessible to everyone, so apart from mares from Central and Western Queensland Ben and Jaye always manage to bring mares home for clients from both Warwick and Tamworth. 

They also collect PLAYRIO from home with semen going from Longreach on Toll with overnight delivery. Their only drawback is if it is too wet to get to town on their dirt road!

Almost anything is possible if you really want to do it!

[Jaye Hall & Daley's Playrio winners of 2009 Paradise Lagoons Stallion draft.]


Ben and Jaye were late getting PLAYRIO progeny as Jaye’s family didn't have any mares that weren't related to him.

Since then, they now have Ben's mares and have acquired a few mares through foal for foal deals. Consequently the PLAYRIO‘s are now starting to come through.

  • They have had every type of mare imaginable, from highly strung thoroughbreds to very placid mares, and 3 things consistently shine through in his offspring:  They have great temperaments, cool minds and are good to ride.
  • They have natural cattle sense, a very strong point in PLAYRIO himself from a very young age.

His foals don't need much work and the Hall's futurity them as 3 & 4 year olds.

Playrio's successful progeny:

Lineup of some Playrio's bred and currently ridden by the Halls, varying from their eldest 9yo to 2yo's.

Playrio's successful progeny.
Raevio (Rave), Visionsario (Vista), Sayplay (Oak Rumours), Portrait (Gloss), Mini Rio (Mini), Curio (Dry Acres), Privilege (Gossip), Cleo (Cleva Oak), Remio (Remenisce), Santa Rio (Santa Girl), Mink Rio (Mink), Eltorrio (Citori), Bushranger (Wishes), Jackson (Caprice), Poetic (Gloss), Painted Rose (Rosenoak), Designerio (Design Acres), Cleverio (Cleva Oak), Miss Abbey R (Abbeyoak).

  • 2016 ACA Finals - Champion Sires Progeny Award 3rd
  • 2015 ACA Finals - Champion Sires Progeny Award 3rd

Playrio’s 3rd place in both 2015 and 2016 is a major achievement considering he is a young sire with far fewer progeny competing than his rivals in this category.

Also of significance when considering the Playrio progeny is the number of ACA Horse Titles these young progeny have won.

Playrio’s bloodlines have been in  the Daley family for over 40 years.

Jaye drafting Daley's Playrio 1979
Grand Sire: Daleys Rio

Daleys Rio was ACA Champion Sire of Australia for 3 years in the 80's for Jaye’s parents, Noel and Dallas Daley. He won over 70 open drafts for Noel, carried Dallas to two ACA Lady rider titles.  In addition, Jaye and her brother Kelly both won numerous Junior drafts on him and Noel picked up, roped & bulldogged off him, often all in the same weekend.
