Welcome to 'Baker/Forsman Racing'
Licenced 'Class A' Public Trainers
Few will need an introduction to the dynamic Baker / Forsman Racing team.
Originally Murray Baker trained in partnership with his son Bjorn, the latter moving operations to Sydney.
Andrew’s love affair with racing began when he worked with Trackside having studied Film and Television in Auckland. The Trackside role was part time and worked in well with working at the Baker stables doing the morning rounds.
Later Andrew Forsman moved into the role of Stable Foreman prior to forming the training partnership with Murray Baker – the partnership this year enjoy their 4th season together.
The racing partnership is fortunate to have great clients stemming back throughout Murray’s illustrious career – the same owners supporting the stables for years and years. And during the last 10 years there has been an increase in new owners as they grow their racing business.
These days the ownership interests come from all around the world, the most recent included those from Asia , where the Mongolian Khan story commences.
The training partnership operates out of the Cambridge Training Centre where 60 boxes are onsite. Adjacent to the training centre is Murray’s 10 acre block, which also has large boxing and paddocking enabling their horses chill out time.
The training partnership currently maintain 70 – 80 horses in full time work, with a staff of 25.
