Roy Higgins Racing Horse Trainers
Roy Higgins Racing is delighted to have the advantage of using the services of Australia's leading trainers, bringing the best out of our team at all times.
Peter Moody today is one of Australia's leading trainers - the conditioner of the world's highest-rated galloper Black Caviar. He has dominated the Victorian training ranks in the past few years.
Moody had a reputation for handling fillies and mares, but now he was recognised for earning stallion prospects vital Group 1 honours. He did so with Magnus, Reward For Effort and Wanted, and in the Spring of 2010 he added Anacheeva when the colt won the stallion-making Group 1 Caulfield Guineas.
Leon Corstens has been around horses all of his life on both sides of the fence. He was an up and coming jockey in South Australia, until a tragic track fall took race riding away from him. After the fall Leon was approached by the mercurial Bart Cummings to take over the reins as stable foreman, which he accepted and the rest is history. The pair proved a formidable force for 25 years, wining Derby’s, Oaks and numerous Melbourne Cups with such horses as Hyperno, Think Big, Kingston Rule, Shiva’s Revenge, Shaftesbury Avenue and Let’s Elope. In 1994 Leon decided to part ways with Bart to train in his own right and it wasn’t before long that he tasted group 1 success with Cherontessa, wining the South Australasian Oaks. He has trained a swag of group winners including Miss Power Bird, Royale Exit, Night Chaser, Lord Luskin, Magic Music, Mr Martini and the triple group one winner Helenus.
