OTI Gazette | Issue 100

This week we’re celebrating the 100th edition of the OTI Gazette!

In doing so, we have a chat to leading Victorian jockey Blake Shinn following his premiership success, assess our weekend runners, celebrate recent winners, look back at our milestone victories and also feature a piece from one of our owners.

All that and much more to look forward to in this edition!

“The lesson learnt was to take nothing for granted, there are no second chances and whilst I have always been a fierce competitor, in Hong Kong winning is everything and nothing else really matters. From this I learnt that every race is important.”


“The challenges aside, the Gazette will continue to focus on those issues that most interest our owners – winners, key participants, featured horses and general issues of interest. The team at OTI thank you for reading it and welcome your feedback on how we might keep it relevant to you and indeed the wider racing community.”
