Now we hear that you keep yourself pretty busy, tell us what else you do? I like to keep myself very busy, so when not working with Sarge (usually in the evenings) I do some racing journalism- I am the Racing Editor for Patriots Riders Management (write all their blogs for the website). When not doing that I also write for G1X Racing (general interest articles), I have my own horse racing blog which is sharing my life inside the racing industry (www.horseracinglife.blog). Then every fortnight on Friday nights, I do all the on course announcements at the Bankstown Paceway – so yes life is 100% horse racing and I am loving life so much more now! Tell us your horse’s names and who trains them? Well unfortunately Hawaiian Rose is long retired as is my other mare I had a share in, Belle Voleur. I currently have a 5% share in an All Too Hard filly named Fidelius Charm trained by the powerful combo in Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, hopefully she will get to the races soon and we get to see what she is made of.
The horse I have had for quite a while now is Ravitude (Pendragon x Ravissant), he has had a change of trainer and is now with Nick Mitchell Racing located at Gosford. He has been a troublesome horse but the team are working him out and hopefully another win is not too far away, it has been a long time between drinks for this boy but I still love him to bits. So would you say you are living your dream life? I absolutely am! It has taken me a long time to get to where I am and now that I have achieved my dreams there is no looking back. I am proud of my accomplishments that I have obtained in life but waking up every day knowing that I never lost sight or gave up on my dream makes me the most happiest. I have had some real low moments in life and it has always been racing and horses that have kept me focused. Just goes to show that if you can dream it, really want it bad enough then you can and will achieve it.
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.
