The Tony Gollan Story
Queensland’s Premiership winning trainer for the last four years running, Tony grew up in Toowoomba, Queensland where he would often frequent the Clifford Park races with his mates. It was his love of racing which drove Tony to take out a trainer’s license at the age of 20 and at only 22 he secured his first metropolitan winner with Nova Serrure and subsequently set up stables in Brisbane.
Enjoying early success in Brisbane, Tony soon had a stable of 14 horses while continuing his education with his father Darryl and legendary trainer Jim Atkins.

Both horses went on to Group 1 success with Spirit of Boom now the hottest young sire in the country.
