Despite being the most important skill in the trade, racehorse training is not all about saddling up winners.
Hiring the right staff, selecting quality yearlings and open-and-honest communication with clients are some of the many aspects that are required by successful racing stables.
Experienced and professional, SJ Wolfe Racing is now in a position to provide all of these services and more to our ever-growing list of clients.
1. Yearling or tried horse selection
We have been very active at sales across Australia in recent years and in the past 12 months have purchased yearlings at the Gold Coast Magic Millions, Inglis Sydney Classic and Perth Magic Millions. We have also enjoyed considerable success with tried horses in the past.
Our stable is a value for money purchaser selecting horses from usually anywhere between $5000 and $60,000.
2. Breaking in and pre-training
SJ Wolfe Racing has recently teamed up with professional young horseman Adam Ferry, from Ryalie Equine in Forrestdale.
Adam is our stable’s sole breaker and we are very impressed with his work. He pre-trains and educates some of our ‘problem’ horses.
SJ Wolfe Racing choses to spell their horses at the south-west properties Mungrup Stud (Narrikup), Shady Acres (Baldivis) and Rosewood Thoroughbreds (Albany).
Some horses are also spelled on our Collingwood Street property in Albany.
4. Training and Pre-training
The leading regional stable for the past 20 years, SJ Wolfe Racing offers a unique service being the only country-based stable with full time operations in Perth.
This gives all our horses access to a variety of training facilities, which allows for tailored individual horse programmes.
It also gives SJ Wolfe Racing an edge in finding races your horse can win at city, provincial and/or country levels.
5. Client Communications
SJ Wolfe Racing has identified client communication as a key element to a successful racing stable and have developed our website to strengthen this side of the business.
This website promises to provide monthly progress reports on all horses in work or spelling, and provide regular updates for those currently racing and/or trialling.
Through the website, owners are encouraged to be actively involved in their horse's day-to-day routine.
We also strongly encourage owners to participate in SJ Wolfe Racing's various social occasions.
