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?

VIC: Kathryne Syer

Hi I’m Kathryne Syer and I’m based on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. I’ve been involved with thoroughbreds for over 20 years.

I love the horse industry from breeding, training, racing, through to dressage, showjumping & eventing – that is why I have a soft spot for thoroughbreds. They are such an athletic and versatile breed which is why they make me very passionate about their off the track rehabilitation and life after racing.

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.

VIC: Sinead Hughes

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.

I just love a day at the races and immediately fell in love with the millinery side of racing.  While continually study this skill, I have entered many competitions and have had success.  A member of the Australian Turf Club and Hawkesbury Race Club, racing is my social outlet.

NSW:  Julie Steel

I have been attending the races longer than I should remember.  My fondest memories are those Ansett days where I ran the Ansett marquee at Melbourne Cup carnival – boy, was it exciting.  From Ansett I went to Emirates where I had a long association.  I am a member of both the ATC and VIC and have attended race meetings all over the world where I have hosted racing tours.

TAS: Alycia Hall

Horses have been a part of my life since before I was born, my mother Rhonda still riding whilst I was in the womb. I have represented Tasmania at the show horse nationals in Victoria on a couple of occasions and also compete at various shows statewide on a regular basis.

I am also the ambassador for the Tasmanian Racing Club 2020. Where I have been quite involved in promoting the summer racing carnival in Tasmania.

Currently my mum Rhonda Hall and myself find homes and have a retraining program for off the track thoroughbreds where they can go on to compete in disciplines such as, hacking, show jumping, eventing, dressage and also for pleasure pursuits. I feel now more than ever it is important that we educate the public about life after racing and becoming an ambassador for this sport has given me the tools to communicate my own personal experiences and reassure the public about the welfare of the horses and life after racing.

I look forward to promoting The Thoroughbred Club and feel honoured to become one of their ambassadors.

WA: Kyles Delic

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.
