OTI Gazette | Issue 60

In the 60th edition of the OTI Gazette, we learn more about trainer Andrew Bobbin, who had his first runner just 12 months ago.

We discuss the potential sale of Sandown Racecourse and Matt Stewart chats about the Jericho Cup (to be run this Sunday). Also, we meet one of our loyal owners and introduce Tom Melbourne’s half-brother!

A CONVERSATION WITH ANDREW BOBBIN

“Horses were always around, Dad broke in a few horses for fun, and my brother and I rode horses up the steep rise, taking inspiration from the movie Phar Lap. It was on one of those rides uphill, that I decided I wanted to be a jockey or a trainer. Since I’m over 100kg now, that ruled being a jockey out!”


MORE INFORMATION NEEDED ON THE SALE OF SANDOWN

“It has been announced that RVL and the Melbourne Racing Club have signed an agreement that such a sale would only occur should it be in the best interest of racing. For many in the industry, it’s akin to saying ‘kids, we might move Christmas, we can’t tell you when, but it will be better!’.”
