Ultimately though, a trainer needs to have an affinity with horses that enables them to coax the absolute best out of them on any particular day. So that along with their passion for racing and the will to win it enables you, the owner, to enjoy THE THRILLS OF RACING!

First and foremost, stockman and people whose interest in the animal translates into an innate ability to read how a horse will develop. I’ll see a foal at LA and Sam or Buzz will tell me how they expect it to develop. I’ll see it during my Karaka inspections 12 months later, and you could blow me over with a feather
