Tom is our head foreman here at Kacy Fogden Racing and is integral part of the business; overseeing the daily running of the stable, managing staff and saddling on racedays in Kacy’s absence.
Tom started in the industry a fresh-faced boy in at his local home track in Gippsland, Victoria. This is where he learnt to ride trackwork and was strapping on race days. He then furthered his knowledge with a year at Darley in Flemington, a breeding season at Northwood Park, Seymour and then onto riding work at the beach for Shea Eden.
Fast forward to 2016 when Tom joined the team. He gets a real sense of achievement knowing that he plays a huge part in the smooth running of the stable and the high morale of the staff. He loves working within a team, seeing the young horses develop through to racehorses and being entrusted to represent Kacy on race day.
Recently, Tom has got back into showing horses, something he competed heavily in his younger days; and has some very exciting prospects in his care that he is going to target the Off The Track series with!
