Dear Followers,

As you may have heard by now – I have been very fortunate to be appointed recently by Racing Victoria Limited as the Apprentice Jockey Coach, whereby I can pass on my skills as a former jockey to train and mentor the next generation of young riders.  This is a role that I am looking forward to immensely. 

Therefore, on Monday September 16, I handed in my Trainer’s License to Racing Victoria Limited.  A training career which spanned over 17 years, I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the caper and I am grateful for the opportunities and support you all have given me.

This time provided me with plenty of highlights, and I was very fortunate to meet and train for many loyal clients who have been the backbone of support for my stable over many years.

Whilst this opportunity came about unexpectedly, I know the time is right for a change of direction, and I’m excited about the chance to develop my skills in a corporate environment within the racing industry.

We will continue agisting and breeding horses at the farm in Officer, and we hope you will keep sending your horses to spell with us, as we will maintain our top quality feed and care.

Kate and I would like to thank you all for your support during my training career and look forward to catching up with you at the races or on the golf course sometime soon.

Kind Regards and Best of Luck with your horses in the near future.
