Candy is our (and your) go to girl for all things office and administration related! Whether you are one of our loyal owners, suppliers, stakeholders or staff members, Candy is there to answer your phone call or email! From updating the company database, correlating supplier invoices to registering your horse – Candy does it all and everything in between!
Being very experienced in the administration world of the industry, Candy has worked for some very reputable organisations such as Sun Stud (previously Eliza Park), Racetree and also Willowbend Stud, prior to joining the team in 2016. She still remembers when she first started with us, there only being one large wooden table in the break room, a single feed printer and one Apple computer to work with – It is fair to say things have come in leaps and bounds since then!
Candy’s first introduction to riding horses and mustering cattle was growing up on a cattle and stockhorse property in Hillview. She then moved onto a chicken property at Kerry near Beaudesert, and then did a stint in Cairns before making her way back down to start in the thoroughbred industry. With a menagerie of animals including a TB weanling, a TB yearling and a TB 2yo being broken-in; plus, three dogs, a cat, two parrots, chooks, turkeys and two miniature ponies – Candy is certainly kept busy outside of work!
Candy loves the everyday challenges her role as Racing Administration can provide her but wouldn’t have it any other way! Candy is an extremely important part of our senior management team.
