WELCOME TO HOPE RACING

Hope Racing is a family run business and is headed by the successful Father and Son training partnership of Lee and Shannon. It operates 2 boutique training establishments based at Seymour and Kilmore to provide diversified environments for the horses.

Lee has over 39 years experience as a trainer and Shannon has 20 years experience and between the two they have enjoyed numerous success over the years. They are frequently positioned in the top list of Trainers in Victoria through their ability to place their horses to perfection. They have encountered Black Type success with "Folding Gear, Vandalo, Gold Sands" to name a few and last season achieved their first Group 1 winner with "Fenway" in the Vinery Stud Stakes. In addition they won the Gr2 Angus Armanasco Stakes & Gr3 Kevin Hayes Stakes with "Sabatini", Gr 3 Frances Tressady with "Madam Gangster" and the Listed MMS Security Stakes with "Pittsburgh Flyer". This season in the Spring of 2015, "Fenway" won the Gr2 Stock Stakes, "Madam Gangster" Gr3 Cockram Stakes & "Pittsburgh Flyer" Gr3 Mumm Stakes. Come Autumn 2016 they are looking to build on an impressive record with their horses.

Both Lee and Shannon work very closely together on a daily basis and each Trainer brings a different prospective to the partnership. They ensure that every horse they train receives the best of individual care sometimes overlooked in the bigger operations. They also recognise that their clients are equally as important and strive to provide their owners with an ultimate racing experience.
