Ontrack Thoroughbreds has welcomed the news that its long-term Melbourne trainer Mick Price is forming a training partnership.
Price has trained many good gallopers for Ontrack from his Caulfield base and this week announced he is taking young trainer Mick Kent Junior into a partnership.
“I think the partnership is fantastic news and a big step forward for the stable,” said Ontrack Thoroughbreds Managing Director Grant Morgan.
“Training partnerships are the way of the future and enable trainers to spread themselves across the various tasks they have on a day to day basis.
“More importantly, it gives them the opportunity for a life outside of racing. The stress and pressure of being a racehorse trainer is immense and I believe that training partnerships are a winner for everyone involved.
“I have known and worked with Mick for more than 20 years now and I believe he is training better than ever. I feel this step plus the strengthening of his Warrnambool base through Matt Williams is also a big step forward.
Whilst I have only known Mick Kent Jnr for a short period, I have been impressed at his communications, knowledge and presentation. He has an outstanding background having learned his trade under his father Mick Kent Senior who is also a high class trainer.
“At Ontrack we are looking forward to continuing our very successful association with Mick Price and Mick Kent and their team going forward,” said Grant Morgan.
