On The Move!



Kendrick Racing is relocating headquarters to Sunshine Coast. KENDRICK Racing is making an exciting move to the Sunshine Coast.

“I think the timing is right to relocate south,’’ said trainer Stuart Kendrick. “We’ve won the last five premierships in Mackay, we have excellent owners and the quality of horses in the stable has never been better,’’
he said.

“The fact Mackay is set to lose race meetings next season, which would have forced us to travel even more, also helped make the final decision.”

Kendrick Racing recently set up a satellite stable at Deagon. Those horses and the Mackay stables will now relocate to Caloundra, which will become Ken-drick Racing’s main headquarters.

“The facilities at Caloundra, including stables oncourse, are excellent,” said Kendrick.

“Our owners have been very supportive of the move.”

Kendrick, who is on top of the Queensland provincial trainers premiership, said the likelihood of Mackay losing up to seven TAB meetings had helped him make the final decision.

“We are already doing a massive amount of travelling and any cuts to race meetings here will only make it tougher for anyone trying to earn a living from training in Mackay.

“It is a shame as my family and I love living in Mackay and racing in North Queensland.”

A decision is yet to be made on whether Kendrick will keep a small satellite stable in Mackay. Stable jockey Adrian Coome, who leads the Queensland provincial jockeys premiership, is also moving to the Sunshine Coast.

Kendrick, 41, began his racehorse training in Mackay part-time at the age of 18. He later moved to Brisbane and trained full-time there. He built up a stable of 18 horses in Brisbane before returning home to Mackay in 2004.
