Profile

A young trainer in the prime of his career, Tony moved to Mornington in 1991 and made Greendale his home.

Our aim is to train fast horses but at the same time not as a singular or selfish passion. Being in a position to share it with others enhances a victory. Family, owners, staff and friends give winning a more enjoyable purpose. We like winning and we like sharing that experience. Tony has spent much time interstate and overseas developing his passion and skills. He loves training and the racing industry.

He has an excellent strike rate in Group and Listed races with over 40 Black Type winners.
