Racing NSW Equine Welfare Fund
Team Thoroughbred NSW is the heart of Racing NSW's commitment to the thoroughbred horse in every stage of its life. It supersedes the NSW Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Trust, which has been providing retraining for racehorses to help them find quality new homes and careers in retirement since 2011.
More than three decades of military service took a heavy toll on Shane Cheney but he’s found solace in an equine therapy course run jointly by Racing NSW and RSL LifeCare.
“Of course I’m going to try and beat her!” They say blood is thicker than water but when Hayley Robl and her mum Elaine saddle up for the One Star event at Denman Horse Trials this weekend, family ties will be left in the float.
Elaine Robl developed a soft spot for Pirellone as his trackwork rider and adopted him at the end of his career. While he wasn’t a star racehorse he & Elaine are winning plenty of ribbons in retirement.
