We are committed to providing a first class service to our clients, and we pride ourselves on having the utmost love and respect for the thoroughbred.
In 2006, David Greene purchased a small agistment and pre-training farm at Tahuna and took out an owner/trainer licence. Five years of hard work and tough lessons later, the frustrations of struggling to give the racehorses the best opportunities had got the better of him, he sold the farm and moved to a purpose built facility at Te Rapa in the heart of the Waikato - consisting of a 14 horse barn, day paddocking, walker and high speed treadmill, the complex benefits by having the Te Rapa race track on its doorstep.
Whether you are new owner looking to experience racing for the first time, or you have racehorse and are considering a new trainer to add to your racing portfolio, we warmly invite you to join the Greene Racing team and be part of the future of racing with us.
To date, Greene Racing has amassed more than $450k in stake monies during his career - a highlight for the stable has been Beautys Beast winning 5 in a season before heading to Australia and winning the $150k South Pacific Classic a Listed race at Randwick.
The training operations are well supported by boutique breeder/owners and the stable has set a precedent for training fillies ... in fact 95% of those currently in work are fillies.

AboutDavid Greene had always wanted to be involved with racing. Fourteen years ago, and just aged 20, he became an owner of his first horse ‘Anden’. He duly turned his hand to training and racing it, a role that would set him on a new career path in life. Resigning from his role as an insurance agent, he went to work for trainer Richard Otto in Te Awamutu. The rest is history, as they say.
David is ably assisted by his wife, Heidi, who rides trackwork and manages the office. Heidi also manages to find time to raise three beautiful children; Gabbi (5), Keely (3) and new arrival Patrick.
