The track riders are integral to the success of the stable as they provide Steve with the necessary feedback regarding the horse’s condition, the horse’s character, his/her way of moving and the horse’s over all condition. Our riders are pivotal towards our horse’s future as a successful racehorse and each person adds value to our team with various ideas and suggestions. Steve, having ridden for so many years himself has a real affinity and understanding of what it takes to be talented rider and many apprentices have gone on to be successful jockeys under his guidance.
