Three of Ontrack Thoroughbreds young horses are setting off on their journey as racehorses under the skilled eye of master horse breaker Greg Bennett.
The man who broke in champion staying mare Makybe Diva has set up a breaking and pre-training operation at Wadham Park near Canungra and Ontrack yearlings by Epaulette, Spirit of Boom and Dissident have just competed their second week of breaking in.
Greg Bennett broke in thousands of horses during two decades as a breaker at Scone before setting up as a trainer around 10 years ago, but after moving to South East Queensland last year he has returned to doing what he loves.
“I really enjoy working with young horses and breaking and educating them. I have had great support since opening the operation at Canungra and have some strong stables sending me horses to break or pre-train,” said Greg Bennett.
He is being assisted by experienced horseman Paul Metcalf and the pair are now riding the Ontrack trio and report they are coming along perfectly in their first steps towards becoming racehorses.
