OTI Gazette | Issue 74

In this edition of the OTI Gazette, we have a chat to Lisa Coffey, founder and director of Racing Hearts, an off the track business which also offers equine assisted therapy.

We discuss the famous Royal Ascot Carnival and our runners, recap recent news, look at our winners, upcoming runners and update you on an exciting three-year-old who is ready to race, Glens Top Cat.

All that & much more!

A CHAT WITH LISA COFFEY

” At Racing Hearts we also retrain retired racehorses to find them excellent homes when they complete some further education and training. We tend to focus more on the horses that are more difficult to rehome, for example older horses, horses that are perhaps not pretty enough for the show ring, horses with previous injuries and horses that are simply not athletic enough for higher level equestrian disciplines.”


THE FAMOUS ROYAL ASCOT CARNIVAL

“However, the important action was on the track where patrons were treated to a feast. For us Australians, Nature Strip, Chris Waller and James McDonald made us feel very proud in witnessing the great win. Although there were far more valuable races for the horse at home, the impact of the win helped reinforce Australia’s position as the preeminent breeder of sprinters.”
