VIC: Sinead Hughes (TEA)

Hi All, I am Sinéad Hughes and I come with extensive thoroughbred experience from many thoroughbred farms, both Northern and Southern hemisphere, handling some of the best bloodstock around.

In Ireland I worked for Mountain View Stud were I sold High Chapperal as a yearling. Working solely with high quality drafts, my experience extented to JP Mc Manus’s farm were I worked for 7 years.  The farm Rosemount Stud would prepare the yearlings and breakers for various trainers on the Curragh and elsewhere.
I then became a yearling manager at Cressfield Stud in the Hunter Valley. Whilst there, my dedication and wealth of knowledge, was instrumental in the preparation of the Fastnet Rock x River Dove colt which made $4.6 million at the 2013 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
Now owner of Sunhill Bloodstock, our inaugural draft to Adelaide with a 100% clearance rate, shows the growing reputation of our farm at major sales.

VIC: Kathryne Syer (TEA)

Hi I’m Kathryne Syer and I’m based on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I love the horse industry from breeding, training, racing, through to dressage, showjumping & eventing. Which is why I have a soft spot for thoroughbreds. Such an athletic and versatile breed. That makes me very passionate about off the track rehabilitation and life after racing. I’ve been involved with thoroughbreds for over 20 years. Originally from New Zealand I’ve worked with horses in the UK, WA and Victoria. From weanlings, starting horses, retraining through to eventing* I’m very excited to be working alongside Sharon Lenton and as an ambassador for the thoroughbred girls.

NSW: Tommy Jeffs (TEA)

NSW South Coast: Tommy Jeffs (TEA)

I am just delighted to be an Ambassador for Thoroughbred Events Australia. My family has been associated with the Racing Fraternity back to my Grandfather – Jack Griffiths – who, with my Mum, trained race horses. My brother – John Jeffs – was STC Manager at Rosehill Racecourse for many years as well as Happy Valley Hong Kong and Randwick.

I have attended race meetings for years often competing in fashions on the field. I love the people, the personalities and especially the Fashion which is getting better by the year. It is great going to the races with a nice crew of people that are involved in all facets of race day. I love the punters, jockeys and trainer’s and look forward to meeting and attending many race days throughout NSW.

QLD: Renee Innes (TEA)

To all of my friends near and far who have a love, interest or even a curiosity about Thoroughbred horses this is the group for you. Sharon Lenton has been very generous in allowing me to share her love, appreciation and respect for Thoroughbred horses and their endeavours after leaving the track and celebrating them in their careers whilst on the track.
For anyone that knows me well I grew up on an Arabian farm and my grands parents were into racing and owned and raced thoroughbreds.
My pop who passed last year was a jockey in his younger years and some of my best memories of my childhood were riding the arm of his couch while watching the races and learning how to pick a winner.
I would like as many of you who can to follow our page and unite as we grow stronger and more supportive in our meet ups, dinners, polo events and the rest of our adventures.

Greetings fellow equine lovers and horse racing enthusiasts!

Id love to introduce myself – Roslyn Buerckner, passionate, dedicated, enthusiastic & committed participant of the booming and thriving Australian Thoroughbred breeding and racing industry.

I was fortunate enough to be born into the industry with my grandfather, George Warrener’s addiction to racehorses flowing thickly through the blood in my veins! Last I’ve heard there is still no known cure for this condition?

Western Australia has beautiful landscape, good racing and glamorous fashion and I am exciting to be able to showcase this to all the Thoroughbred Girls across Australia.  2020 is going to be an amazing time where we will not only introducing more women to the racing world but form a strong bond with like-minded women.

Having come from a family with a long history of involvement, racing is in my veins.  To be able to have a safe environment for Thoroughbred Girls to join in, is definitely an exciting element that I look forward to bringing to WA.
