We have a fantastic team of staff working for us and we always strive to achieve the best results for our clients. We would like to introduce some of our team to you.
Colin Alderson , Horse Trainer
Colin is well known and respected for his honesty and pro-active approach in the industry. He is a past President of the Victorian branch of the Australian Trainers Association and the Federal body - taking over the Victorian Presidency of the Australian Trainers’ Association in 1992 and assuming the President of the Federal Australian Trainers’ Association in 1997. From this position Colin has been able to advocate for industry wide improvements for both the trainers and owners. In 2000, Colin became the proud recipient of the Medal of Australia commemorating Australian Sporting Achievement from Prime Minister, John Howard.
Colin has a reputation as a ‘straight talker’ and has a deep enduring passion for horses and the racing industry.
He retired from training mid 2016
Cindy Alderson , Horse Trainer
Cindy may have served the longest apprenticeship ever in horse training. Since getting on a horses’ back at the age of three, Cindy has been under the watchful, coaching eye of her father, Colin. She went on to compete in many Equestrian disciplines including winning a State Level Championship.
After completing her Teaching Diploma in 1987, Cindy enjoyed a two year sojourn overseas, where she worked and gained experience at stables in the UK, USA and New Zealand.
In 1990, Cindy obtained her Training Licence, being among the very first women in Australia to be granted a permit to train. She achieved metropolitan success with the first horse she trained – ‘Old Magician’.
For a brief period, Cindy was employed by Racing Victoria to implement and run a Traineeship program for the industry. Later, she was employed by Victoria University to write resource materials for racing industry training.
In 2000, Cindy committed to training full time and draws on her own experiences and the shared knowledge and experience of Colin. Cindy is an excellent student of bloodlines and has a keen eye for a future champion.
