Stephen was brought up in the Hunter Valley, Australia’s home of Thoroughbreds, and has spent a lifetime around horses.
He trained successfully at Coffs Harbour, before moving to Ballina in the early eighties. The location of Ballina, is ideal for attendance to many country race meetings throughout Northern NSW, in addition to Provincial and Metropolitan races in QLD, thereby giving the opportunity for horses to be placed carefully with success.
Stephen knows what it takes to train top class horses with multiple metropolitan winners in Brisbane and Sydney. Additional to winning two Northern Rivers Racing Association Premierships, and numerous country cups.
Stephen's philosophy for success, and main aim for training a racehorse, is to ensure they are content and happy in their work and environment, to achieve their full potential of their ability and success. The racehorses receive the highest level of care, and individual programming for feeding, and a diverse work regime tailored to the needs to each individual.
Stephen's work ethic is very hands on as he is very passionate about spending as much time as possible knowing his horses, and for them to feel confident with him.
