You are encoruaged to be part of the journey in getting your horse to maximise his/her potential and we always aim to maximise returns for our owners, whether that is by race placement or ensuring that fillies can have a rewarding career that can increase their residual value.
“McVean Racing have given us excellent advice on a “one to one” basis and we have been very pleased with the results in our involvement to date with thoroughbreds.”
“Jeff, Emmalee and David have been training horses for us since January 2012. As Owners, we are often anxious to learn of our horses’ condition, whether in training, resting through injury or whilst spelling. Emmalee and David’s ability to regularly communicate with us about our horses’ progress have been most appreciated by us. Their genuine concern of the horses’ wellbeing at all times speaks volumes of their professionalism. We have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective Owner as racehorse trainers.”
Breaking In and Pre-Training
Breaking In Racehorses
We pride ourselves in being able to take your horse right from day one through to racing. We have been breaking in racehorses since we first began training and love seeing them develop. We have competent riders who use backgrounds in racing, eventing, showjumping, dressage and polo to ensure each horse is broken in thoroughly and competently can go on with racing having a well rounded education.
We also provide a comprehensive pre training program bringing horses back in to work and ensuring their are ready to go on with the next stage of training. We specialise iin bringing horses back in from injury as well as preparing horses for export to Singapore and Hongkong. We can prepare these horses all the way to trial or racing before they are exported depending on the owner and overseas trainers requirements.

Racehorse Syndicate Success Stories
Blizzard; Purchased at the 2012 Karaka Select sale for $35000. He has since go on to run in some of New Zealands biggest racing contests including the NZ Derby, Auckland and NZ Cups. He has won over $120,000 in just 19 starts and is being aimed towards an Australian Campaign this Spring.
Stratocaster; One of our very impressive up and comers and really looks a Group One racehorse in the making. Purchased at Karaka Premier in 2013, He won the Hawkes Bay Guineas Prelude at just his second start and was 5th in Group One 2000 Guineas. He sustained a minor injury during his derby campaign but is such an exciting prospect for next season.
Gotham; Puchased at the 2014 Karaka sales he was given a very light 2 year old preparation as he was bought with the intention of racing at three. He gave us all a big thrill though running a fantastic last to second at the Boxing day 2 year old race and gaining a spot in the Karaka Millions. From just four starts he has brought back over $35000 in stake money and we have so much more to look forward to with him.
