Inaugural TRL Trainers

A larger than life character, Brett Cavanough has certainly done the hard yards, riding track work at the age of 12 for his grandfather. Cav has won the title of New South Wales leading country trainer on 5 occasions, defeating the likes of Paul Perry, Kris Lees and Barbara Joseph, a remarkable effort for an Albury-based trainer.

Last year he won the prestigious Kosciuszko at Royal Randwick with his stable star It’s Me. Cav is without doubt a “likeable larrikin”, and his success is based on the simple principles of hard work and professionalism that come from growing up in outback Queensland. Click here to learn more.

Richard and Michael Freedman are now a partnership again, Richard training the older horses out of Rosehill while Michael nurtures the younger horses from the Randwick stables. Their family history in racing goes back 4 generations to their great grandfather Bill “Midge” McLachlan who rode 3 Melbourne Cup winners.

As a team headed by eldest brother Lee, Richard, Michael and Anthony Freedman combined to carve out their own place in thoroughbred history, winning 5 Melbourne Cups, 5 Caulfield Cups, 2 Cox Plates and 4 consecutive Golden Slippers, in a tally stretching over 100 Group 1 victories.

Gai is arguably the biggest name in racing, her honour roll is amazing, there’s the Golden Slippers, the Melbourne Cup, the Cox Plates and everything in between. She learnt the trade from the greatest of all time, her father Tommy won 33 consecutive Sydney premierships and now she’s passing on that knowledge to Adrian Bott.

It is Gai's enthusiasm that continues to amaze Bott, who can already boast a Slipper of his own amongst many other impressive victories. Their partnership just seems to work, as they continue to train winners together. Click here to learn more.

Joe Pride had no family link with the racing industry, and was actually studying psychology at University when the fascination with the horse struck and he joined the powerful John Size stable, learning his tricks of the trade.

Joe proved himself to be a quick learner and when Size shifted to Hong Kong, Pride took out his own training license and quickly made his mark. He started by focusing on improving tried horses like Vision and Power and reinvigorating them to achieve Group One success. Now from his Warwick Farm stable, Joe is among the elite trainers and boasts 13 Group 1 victories to his name, and the success keeps coming! Click here to learn more.

Kim is a trailblazer, first as a champion harness driver and trainer, before switching with enormous success to the thoroughbreds. She has experienced Group 1 glory winning the Sydney Cup with Mahtoum who went on to finished fifth in the Melbourne Cup.

While training out of the Wyong Race Club, Kim also has a state of the out spelling and pre-training farm within a stone’s throw of the track. It is her passionate love of not only the horse, but all animals that draws people to Kim and her training expertise. Click here to learn more.

Like so many, Mark’s “rapid rise” has been decades in the making. Starting at the age of 15 as a strapper, to apprentice and then as a jockey with over 300 wins. Mark learnt from the best with a long stint in the stables of the legendary Bart Cummings and as a foreman for Gai Waterhouse, before quickly making his mark as a trainer in his own right.

Mark’s trump card can be seen as the fact that he still rides his own horses in work and key gallops, which gives him a unique insight into the horse itself. He already has 4 Group 1 wins to his name in his short 5 year training career, and we are sure they will keep on coming. Click here to learn more.

Adam has been training for the past 12 years. He has had great success with horses such as Mr Moet, Star Exhibit, Real Love, Come Play With Me, Lords Ransom, Enticing Star and has won races like the Group 1 Railway Stakes, Group 3 Perth Cup (3 times).

Adam has won the trainers premiership 7 out of the past 10 years and continues to have an excellent strike rate. His best season tally was in 2013-14 when he trained 77 metropolitan winners. Durrant's hands on approach gives him the advantage of knowing exactly what is going on with all of his horses. Click here to learn more.

The Pearce brothers, born in Bristol, but bred in the West are the new dynamic duo on the training scene. Working out of the 'horse heaven' that is Karnup (60kms south of Perth). With the partnership, our owners will have the best of both the talented horseman, because as Ben says, “For me, the partnership works really well because Dan can be in the shed running everything and I can have the confidence knowing he’s all over it while I’m out riding", which he still does on a daily basis.

Playing AFL and training racehorses are two exceptionally time consuming and tough professions and while most footballers would be eyeing a break to rest and rejuvenate at the end of their careers, Ballantyne said his competitive nature made him want to get straight back into racing. In saying this, he isn't new to the sport, with his dad being a horse trainer in Perth for many years.

Ballantyne started training following his retirement from AFL in 2019, and has a small stable at any one time in work. He defied the odds as a small powerhouse forward in the AFL, and is now trying to do the same in racing! Click here to learn more.

The Taylor name is arguably the most famous of names in Western Australia racing. There isn't a major race in WA that Jim Taylor hasn’t won as a jockey or as a trainer. In fact, he rode the winner of Ascot Gold Cup, the day his daughter Brittany was born.

Jim Taylor's first major winner was Country Blazer in 2001 and first Group One winner was Barakey in the 2012 WATC Winterbottom Stakes. The most recent major winner for Jim Taylor was at the highest level when Magnifisio won the Group One WATC Winterbottom Stakes. Click here to learn more.

Simon Miller has been entrenched in racing since a very young age, with his family being involved in many facets of the industry. He spent his weekends as a youngster mucking out stalls in Geelong, before he started working as a stable hand for Robbie Griffiths. He quickly climbed the ranks and spent 8 years as an assistant trainer to Robbie Griffiths, John O'Shea and Robert Smerdon.

In 2008 he moved to Perth and started as one of the smallest on the block, having just 4 horses in work. Since then, the stable has become one of the largest and most successful racing entities in Perth, having won numerous Group and Listed races. Click here to learn more.

Todd was destined to be a racehorse trainer with 3 generations of trainers in his family before him and he is now a fourth generation trainer. At the age of 20 Todd applied for his licence and became the youngest licenced trainer in Perth at that time.

His first winner came with a horse named Cartridge at Mt Barker and his brother Clint Harvey rode the horse to victory. In his short time of training Todd has trained some very nice horses including the retired Lachino, Keystone Lady who looks to be going places and he played a major role in Always A Devil's successes. Click here to learn more.

Chris Anderson wasn’t born into the racing game but he has certainly made up for the lost time. A one time successful publican & executive in the liquor game, he cast that career aside to follow his passion.

Chris’s bold move to try his hand at training, again showed his tenacity, and dedication. His late entrance into the training industry, has given him the advantage of having no preconceived ideas, or outdated family habits to shake, allowing him to focus on developing more modern, and effective training techniques. Click here to learn more.

There was hardly a major race Chris Munce didn’t win as a jockey. Boasting a long list of honours, Chris’ main achievements included an overall of 42 Group 1 wins culminating in the ‘Big Four’ – Melbourne Cup, Cox Plate, Golden Slipper and Caulfield Cup.

As a trainer, Chris is now developing his Eagle Farm based stable with quality youngsters and he has already tasted feature-race success with the likes of Boomsara ($2M Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Winner) and Ours To Keep (first Group winner), as well as having had three starters in the $2M Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Click here to learn more.

Michael Costa Racing, based out of the Gold Coast, is fast becoming famous for its innovative training methods, dedication to horse welfare and its fresh and dynamic emphasis on the client experience.

Since Michael relocated the Michael Costa Racing stable from Sydney to the Gold Coast in 2016, he has established one of the leading stables in Queensland from only a boutique sized team of horses. In the 2019/2020 season, Michael Costa Racing was crowned in the top 5 winning strike rates in the country and we are on target to break our winning record for the next racing season. Click here to learn more.

As a young man Rob travelled the world in the tourism industry, then he conquered the world with his all star sprinter Buffering beating the best in Dubai. There’s been the multiple Brisbane and Queensland training premierships, over a thousand winners, and the Group 1 glories.

Rob believes that owners are the most important people in racing, some he has had from the first year he started training, which is a true testament to his great communication and his very approachable personality that makes owners feel like part of the 'racing family'. Click here to learn more.

Toby Edmonds relocated from Warwick Farm to the Gold Coast not for the sun or the surf, but for an opportunity, setting up his own stable in 2011 and he has never looked back. There’s been Magic Millions success with Houtzen, and now the entire family are entrenched at the state of the art stable with an official training partnership between Toby and son Trent.

The stable consistently has winning strikeouts which are industry leading and in season 2018 Toby trained 106.5 winners at a strike rate of 21.7% which placed the stable in the top 3 Nationally in terms of winning strike rate. This cemented him as not only one of Queensland’s, but one of Australia’s leading thoroughbred trainers. Click here to learn more.

Champion trainer Tony Gollan was more than a promising rugby league player. He represented Queensland in the Under 19s and had aspirations of being a Brisbane Bronco. However it was his undying love of the horse that saw him take up horse training full time.

Tony Gollan has achieved the feat of winning the Metropolitan Queensland Trainers’ Premiership for 5 seasons in a row and currently holds the record of Metro wins breaking his own record in the 2017/18 season previously set in 2015/16. He has numerous Group 1 wins to his name and continues to dominate the ranks in QLD. Click here to learn more.

INAUGURAL TRL HORSES

Our owners third purchase at Magic Millions came from Tyreel Stud by Hellbent x Fimantino. As a half sister to the 2YO Magic Millions winner Shaquero, we had our eye on her from the start as a horse that we wanted in our teams stable.

Sire Hellbent had four starts in Gr1’s never worse than fourth, and his form was impeccable in every G1 he contested. He was a winner of 7 races and won more than $900,000 in prizemoney, including the 2018 G1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) in near record time; second in the 2017 G1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) and third in the G1 Oakleigh Plate to Russian Revolution. Click here to learn more about this horse.

Headwater is the young sire that ticks all the boxes! He’s bred for pure speed being by a Gr.1 Newmarket Hcp winner, out of a Gr.1 Oakleigh Plate winner.

Headwater had early 2yo speed, winning on debut in December of his juvenile year before going on to win the Gr.2 Silver Slipper as a 2yo. He was then one of only a few to go on as a 3yo and defeat older horses at Stakes level inc. subsequent Gr.1 winner The Quarterback when victorious in the Kensington Stakes, a sprint down the Flemington straight. This filly is considered an absolute steal from the Magic Millions sale. Click here to learn more about this horse.

Pierro needs no introduction. He was the unbeaten Triple Crown winner as a 2YO and a dual Gr. 1 winner as a 3YO. Pierro is the highest-rated Australian juvenile since 1977, and was the highest-rated 3YO sprinter in the world in 2013.

Pierro has already proved himself at stud, being a champion first, second and third season sire in Australia. He is already the sire of 7 individual Group 1 winners including Levendi, Pierata and Arcadia Queen. It is no surprise that he currently stands at a service fee of $137,500 at the renowned Coolmore Stud, and how lucky are the NSW Tycoons to have a colt by this super sire. Click here to learn more about this horse.

Star Turn was a Powerhouse Sprinter and drew first blood as a Spring 2yo in the Pierro Plate at Randwick before a 2nd to Flying Artie in the Blue Diamond Prelude in the Autumn. His only unplaced runs in a 12 start career were 5th and 6th in Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper respectively.

As a 3yo Star Turn returned for a Spring campaign with a dominant victory over Golden Slipper winner Capitalist in the San Domenico Stakes Gr.3 and was then sent to Melbourne, where he won the WFA Gr.2 Schillaci Stakes against older horses (Malaguerra, Fell Swoop). Our Bloodstock Team thinks this son of Star Turn will be an early runner – click here to learn more about this horse.

The Sherpa is the first tried horse for the NSW Tycoons and is trained by Brett Cavanough in Scone.

Everyone has always wanted to own a superbly bred Grey. This beauty of a Colt was one of the most talked about Yearlings leading into the draft, and the QLD Rogues were thrilled to secure him on their team. His sire Fastnet Rock was a 2 x Gr.1, Gr.2 and Gr.3 winner as a 3YO, and has now sired over 40 individual Group 1 winners.

A legend both on and off the track, Fastnet Rock continues to impress all in the industry with the types he produces, and this grey looks a champion in the making. Click here to learn more about this horse.

Sire Hellbent had four starts in Gr1’s never worse than fourth, and his form was impeccable in every G1 he contested. He was a winner of 7 races and won more than $900,000 in prizemoney, including the 2018 G1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) in near record time; second in the 2017 G1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) and third in the G1 Oakleigh Plate to Russian Revolution.

In-bred 3×3 to Green Desert, Hellbent is I Am Invincible’s fourth G1 winner and 29th Stakes winner and is out of Volksraad mare Volkaspray who is from the family of 1963 Golden Slipper winner Pago Pago. We can’t wait to see what this colt can do on the track. Click here to learn more about this horse.

By sire Flying Artie – Australia’s highest rated 3YO sprinter in 2016/17. An Exceptional Juvenile, Flying Artie won the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude defeating Star Turn, ran a tremendous Blue Diamond running 2nd to Extreme Choice, and ran 3rd in the G1 Golden Slipper. He won the Group 1 Stallion-Making Coolmore Stakes defeating the likes of Extreme Choice, Astern, Star Turn, and Russian Revolution.

He is the sire of Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes Winner Artorius, and is already the sire of 5 Australian Fire Crop Winners to Date. Click here to learn more about this horse.

I Am Invincible was an exceptional sprinter, having five wins at 1000 & 1100 metres and winning $270,050 in prizemoney. These included the Group III SAJC DC McKay Stakes, Listed MRC Sir John Monash Stakes and second to Takeover Target in the Group I SAJC Goodwood Handicap.

There is no denying that I Am Invincible is most notable for his success as a stallion, having sired more than 60 individual stakes winners. His progeny include the likes of Viddora, Loving Gaby, Brazen Beau and Voodoo Lad, all winners of numerous Gr. 1 races. He stands for a whopping service fee of $209,000, the most expensive stallion in Australia. The QLD Rogues will have a lot of fun with this impressively bred filly.
