OTI Gazette | Issue 71


In the 71st edition of the OTI Gazette, we have a chat to Murray Baker, who recently retired as a racehorse trainer and was also former trainer of Australian Derby contender Regal Lion.

We also discuss the famous Warrnambool Carnival, look at our recent winners and upcoming runners, introduce a new colt by Vadamos and Matt Steward talks about some of the great equine adventurers including Phar Lap, Strawberry Road and now Verry Elleegant.

All that and much more!

A CHAT WITH MURRAY BAKER

“For me, given the sort of horses I trained, giving them plenty of time to develop was an essential ingredient to my success. I always felt that with the staying types, time was a huge asset. Giving them time to develop was a huge benefit.”


WARRNAMBOOL CARNIVAL IMPACT

“Local and Melbourne people moulded with trainers and jockeys to produce good times on and off the track and to raise funds for local charities. The passion and excitement of the carnival matched it with any carnival witnessed around the globe.”
