MEET THE OWNERS
Horse racing has been a part of me since I was born, I often get reminded how my dad would put me in front of him as we would ride his very slow picnic horse "Archie" up the Kilmore monument.
Fast forward to 6 years and I was sitting on Pop's lap cheering home Efficient in the 2007 Melbourne Cup after letting me have $25 each way on it. Ever since that moment, for as long as I could remember every Saturday Pop and I would spend our day at the Red Lion Pub and now recently Kilmore's Irish pub "Macs." Cheer winners home!
As much as I love having a bet with family and mates the thing that I love about racing is the positive effect it has on so many people each day. I love scrolling through social media each day, hearing the stories and seeing photos of how a horse has change a persons life for the better.
My love for racing will never end. I will support till the day i die. My two goals in racing are to visit every track in Victoria and like everyone else win a group 1!
The first memories of Horse Racing for myself stretch all the way back to when I was 5 years old in Kindergarten. Our teacher kept all us back after the bell had rung and rolled out those old Big, Box TVs. We all sat there with our legs crossed waiting in anticipation to watch “The most important race on the Australian calendar”, The Melbourne Cup.
From that day, I was infatuated with The Melbourne Cup and for years to come begged my mum to allow me to wag school on this day. Luckily, I was very convincing, and my mum obliged on many occasions to let me skip the day, go have lunch, place a few bets and watch the race where my love all started!
Over a decade on, my love of the sport was reignited through a major life setback. I was lost in life and felt as though I had nowhere to go. Fortunately, all my main loves of sports, mathematics and predicting outcomes clashed and now my life is devoted to studying horse racing.
I have always had a love for fashion being a creative person myself and I thought it would be cool to one day have my own clothing line. Luckily, once again 2 main interests of mine have clashed here with Punters Wardrobe being a horse racing clothing line.
I cannot wait to get stuck right into things!
