Thoroughbred Careers On Offer Through New Cadetship


Thoroughbred Industry Careers are inviting young people with a passion for horses or racing to get involved with the industry through a new Explorer Cadetship program.

The cadetship is a thoughtfully designed and managed 12-month stud and stable horsemanship program, offering an educational pathway to mentor young Australians into a career within the world-leading Australian Thoroughbred Industry.

Lead Trainer Tony McEvoy joined Anita on today's Country Viewpoint to share the details.


The cadetship begins with a three-month practical and theoretical learning block at the Australian Racing and Equine Academy (Richmond, NSW), with students residing at Western Sydney University.

Students will then be allocated to a leading trainer where they will spend 4.5 months on their first paid work-experience in a racing stable, followed by 4.5 months on a leading stud farm.

Upon graduation of the program, students will be further guided and mentored into an area which interests them.

The first intake of 40 students will commence studies in February 2019, with applications closing at the end of this month.
