About Us

A little bit about the people behind the passion of what we do!


Lyn Shand – Trainer

Lyn attended Pony Club from the age of 8 until she was 21, during which time she competed (up to State Level) in many disciplines including mounted games, dressage, showjumping & eventing.  Lyn trained extensively with the late Charlie Moffat (International Showjumper & Member of 1996 World Equestrian Games Showjumping Team), and qualified to compete internationally in Eventing. She spent a number of years training alongside many Olympic team members/medallists in the United Kingdom, Belgium and Italy and was actively involved in training Thoroughbreds for CCI**** (Olympic) Level. She was the Chef d'Equipe (Team Manager) for the Italian Eventing Team competing at Bonn-Rodderbeg CCI in 2001. She completed her British Horse Society Professional Qualifications (Stage 2) in 2001 and Equine Specific First Aid in 2002 whilst in England. Back in Australia, Lyn completed her Certificate IV in Thoroughbred Racing in 2007 & was granted her Racehorse Trainers Licence and continues to train a small team of racehorses. Lyn is also a Racing Victoria Acknowledged Retrainer and a qualified Accountant, however much prefers not to be desk bound!


 

Jamie Bayliss - Jockey / Breaker

Jamie was a successful jockey in Queensland for a number of years with a career highlight being his 1989 Ipswich Cup win on Dixie Kid. Jamie then turned his hand to training and had a successful racing stable based in Ipswich, prior to his move to Victoria in late 2010 to launch his son's (Jake & Regan) careers as Apprentice Jockeys. After a 20 year break from race riding, Jamie regained his Jockey licence in Victoria. Jamie has had many years’ experience breaking in and training Thoroughbreds. Jamie loves exploring all the disciplines thoroughbreds can be used in and spends many hours a day either being a Jockey, trainer or breaker.  He is known in the industry as a master with young or difficult horses.
