Contact Phone: 0418 476 562

Specialise in: Pacers 

Facebook: HARASETAK STABLES

Bio: We are a small quiet country stable in NSW, we have great facilities and paddocks/yards for the horses to relax on days off and during the day. Each horse gets individual and personalised training and attention and we especially like to work babies and see them grow and improve each prep. We generally breed our own and maybe buy 1 yearling at the sales but looking to grow on that base as the babies are the future racing stock. We have had 2 stand out performers in 'The Dancing Posum' and recently 'Ned Pepper' who won 5 country cups in NSW in one season and has won from 1700m to 2900m. We currently have room available from pretraining, training, racing and rehab.

Contact Phone: 0412 979 793

Specialise in: Both Pacers & Trotters

Bio: 

Husband and wife duo Joe and Mary Rando founded Rando Racing and were the first official training partnership in New South Wales.

The multiple Group-winning trainers specialise in the preparation of both trotters and pacers and pride themselves on attention to detail with their team.

Horses live in a very natural setting and thrive on their 25-acre property in Sydney’s North West.

The undulated sand track has helped the gait of both trotters and pacers, building their hind quarters and muscle.

In recent years, Rando Racing has experienced success with trotters and has also been accomplished with pacers too.

Feature wins include the Bathurst Gold Chalice, Simpson Memorial, Redcliffe Cup, Bulli Trotters Cup, La Coocaracha (VIC), the Australian Franco Trotters Cup and the Keystone Del.

Specialise in: Both Trotters and Pacers

Bio: 

Dylan Stratford is a 30yo, up and coming trainer who is already starting to put together an impressive record in just his 3rd full time season training in Victoria.

Dylan spent his formative years learning from some of the best trainers in his native New Zealand, including Tim Butt and David Butt and in America with renowned horseman Chris Ryder.

He now trains from the state-of-the art Cranbourne Training Centre. The Centre not only gives him access to outstanding facilities but also affords Dylan a cost structure which allows him to offer his owners very competitive/affordable training fees.

Boasting an impressive strike rate, Dylan’s aptitude with young horses is borne out by his having qualified horses for a number of feature races last season including Victorian Trotting oaks, Breeders Crown finals and Vicbred Super Series finals.

Dylan puts a strong emphasis on giving owners an enjoyable experience, with regular updates through the MiStable app, transparent and honest feedback, and open lines of communication.

Prospective owners are encouraged to contact Dylan and he will gladly assist with sale day pedigree advice and yearling inspection.

Highlights included finalists in both Breeders Crown finals for 3yo pacing and trotting fillies and finalist in the Vicbred Super series for 3yo trotting fillies, with over 70% of our runners winning 3 races or more for the season. We are delighted that season 2021 is continuing in a similar fashion.

All bar one of our purchases from major sales have been winners and welcome any inquiries from owners and yearling sale purchasers.

About Us:

Clinton:  An ‘A’ grade trainer/driver who has worked for some of Victoria’s leading participants in John & Maree Caldow (3 years) , Graeme and Gavin Lang (9 years) , Glenn Douglas/Anderson racing (3 years) as well as respected trainer of the trotter, Russell Thomson (2 years).   Having worked for a variety of trainers he has experienced many differing training methods and quality of horses therefore, understanding the needs and requirements of each individual horse are different.

Joelene:  Has previously worked for Bruce Morgan, and also has a long time family involvement in the sport. Joelene has a thorough understanding of the industry and the requirements of running a professional training environment. 

What we can offer:

In the past few years we purchased a small property on the outskirts of Bendigo, Victoria.  This property has become the home of our training establishment.   The property has been developed with a training track for our personal use and stables to accommodate the horses in our care.

Recently we have made some new acquisitions to cater for all kinds of horse needs, these include a 6-horse walking machine and an Equissage unit. The Equissage unit we be used on all our horses in work at least once a week unless indicated by yourself. In the near future we will also develop one of our properties dams to accommodate horses for bungee swimming.

We do not claim to have the best facilities or to be miracle workers, however can assure that each horse is cared for and trained to the best of our ability.  One on one care will be provided to each and every horse with welfare paramount.

Bio: I am a Group 1 winning trainer of both Trotters and Pacers. The majority of these coming from juvenile races with horses sourced from yearling sales. I am a self confessed yearling sale addict and most recently drove 8 hours overnight to attend a sale in country NSW. I try to cater for clients of all budgets including syndication. I recently did a podcast with Paul Campbell on what I look for in a yearling the link is below, or alternatively go to David Miles Racing Stables Facebook page and listen to it there. Look forward to seeing you at Oaklands Junction.
