Where it all began
Allison has a gift with horses – gained through her upbringing in the show arena where she learned the foundations of caring and presenting a thoroughbred for competition.
With experience in equestrian and showjumping fields Allison decided in 2005 to transfer her knowledge into preparing racehorses and has done so seamlessly – renowned for her second-to-none care and attention to her horses. Crediting her ability to ride her horses in trackwork – this helps Allison gauge accurately the progression of each horse and prepare a work schedule she see’s fit.
Allison’s philosophy is simple and has proven effective over time with a band of successful racehorses to develop under her care. She believes in individual attention and keeping a horse in a relaxed and natural environment together with placing the horse where she seems to be most competitive.
“I love seeing a young horse develop and mature into an athlete and the thrill their owners get of seeing it come to fruition on the racetrack – I’ll never get tired of training winners!”
Gaining the reputation of an astute and patient horse trainer – her uncanny knack with the sometimes highly strung thoroughbred has been admired. Allison can hang her hat on many proud achievements but none more so than TACKLEBERRY. A winner of five races and over $143,000 in stakes – the son of Lago Delight’s highlight was winning three consecutive races culminating in a metropolitan win. Courtesy of VILLA ALVARADO, Allison also has the Lilydale Cup ran at Yarra Valley in her trophy cabinet along with countless silverware – including that of multiple city winner and group performed mare now at stud ANDRASSY.
