Depending on their role they may look after a single horse though a lot of the time they have multiple horses they need to take care of. They look after the horses in the stables, in the yards and on race day. They do everything involved in looking after the horse (or horses) assigned to them.

The exciting and impressive colt with incredible bloodlines is close to selling out with only limited units remaining in the David Hayes-trained filly. A son of one of the most exciting sires in Australia racing, Zoustar, this colt has taken to training really well with his temperament, that of a champion and future stallion.

Water Training: more than just splashing around

Water training has become an integral part of racehorse training programs but perhaps more importantly, a fun part that nearly all racehorses look forward to. When you think of water and training it is natural to think of rehabilitation but for a racehorse it can be the vehicle to better balance, higher workload rates and co-ordination. Looking first at deep water or pool training, swimming is very intensive: for a horse 10 minutes of swimming equals a normal 1 hour-training session. It is good cardiovascular training in which endurance is built under almost non-existent impact conditions. It ensures the horse…
