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.

Bryan Guy began training in 1992 after the sudden passing of his father, successful trainer Ray Guy. Bryan tasted immediate success winning with his first starter, All Our Mob which would later go on to deliver Bryan his first Group One victory in the QTC Stradbroke Handicap. During the preceding years Bryan continue to train a vast amount of winners and was a constant in the top ten of the Sydney trainers premiership. Bryan decide to establish a satellite stable at the Gold Coast in the year 1998 and while only small in horse numbers, the winners flowed. After two years Bryan made the decision to move the entire stable to the Gold Coast and what a move it has been. In this time Bryan has trained the winners of many of the South East corners feature races and has won the Metropolitan Trainers title as well as the South East district tittle twice and also the Ipswich trainer’s premiership twice. Bryan is also amassing an impressive record at the state’s feature race day, the Magic Millions winning most of the races on the card. While he is yet to win the big won he has been placed on a couple of occasions. Bryan has won three group one races and has won over seventy stakes races and well over 1000 winners and this record holds Bryan in the top echelon of trainers in Queensland with very few other trainers having a record to rival Bryan.
