Our Stable Staff
Our enthusiastic workers consist of and Administration Executive, an Assistant 'B' Trainer, a Stable Supervisor and Syces.
David and Ima run our stable office, Michael White assists Michael with the training of the horses, and Sidek, Airy, Wei Xuan and Gok supervise our Syces.
Gareth Pepper assists Michael with the communications between his Owners.
Our Syces handle the horses on a daily basis. They prepare the horses for their morning exercise and wash them down thereafter.
In the afternoons they care for and clean the horses, thereby establishing a relationship with all of them. This enables the Syces to maintain their horses in top condition.
Our Track Riders
Our group of dedicated and skilled track riders is responsible for the daily exercising of our horses.
Nin has been track riding for over 20 years, and Shafrizal who is a licenced Apprentice Jockey, head up the co-ordination of our team of riders. They are assisted by Acang, Kif, Alif, Jali, Munir and Chew, our trainee Apprentice Jockey. They all carry a wealth of knowledge and experience with them.
They enjoy their interaction with the horses they ride and they get to build a close bond with them.
By following Michael's daily workout instructions for each horse, they play their part in keeping the horses content, fit and in good form. Their feedback on how the horses are feeling provides a good guide to Michael on every horse's progress.
