If Andrew could change one thing it’s that he would have started training horses long before he did.

In his 50s when he decided to pursue his lifelong passion, Andrew didn’t take long to establish himself in the Southern District racing scene.

After collecting three wins in his first season, Andrew captured 12 victories in just his second campaign as a trainer.

As he enters his sixth season, Andrew has already celebrated over 50 career winners with his number of starters and victories increasing year on year.

Among his achievements are success with tried horses, including New Zealand-bred Lautaro who contested the $400,000 Country Championship Final at Randwick in 2017.

Andrew’s training philosophy is considered and measured, he builds confidence in the ownership party while creating long term partnerships with clients.

Prior to his working life Andrew was a talented Australian Rules footballer, reaching the sport’s highest level.
