“You keep giving us thrills that we can only dream about”

“Over 2 years ago when I was managing Yarran, Shannon and Dee came out to the farm with clients to look at a yearling which was heading towards your stable. I said to Shannon to jump in the ute, but he wanted to get on the back and stand up and look around as we drove around the farm. It’s funny how certain things stick in your mind, and after working in the industry for a period of time, you soon work out the horsemen from the pretenders.

When I made the decision to move Madam Gangster from Mornington, that was one of the main reasons I chose your stable. The other was Mark Thomas. I spoke to Mark around six months before she came to you, and asked him who would he recommend at Seymour as a trainer. He was adamant, your stable was the one.

Yesterday you all gave our syndicate something special. Some big owners believe they deserve it, but for us as small owners, that was an experience we will all cherish forever. You keep giving us thrills that we only dream about, but you and your staff make them reality.

As you were well aware of, the syndicate had gone through some sad times over the past 12 months. Yesterday you gave everyone a day that we will never forget, and for that, we all thank you so much.

Once again, thanks to everyone involved.”
