Join Melbourne Cup winning trainer Danny O'Brien
Contract Type
Full Time, Part Time

The time is now to expand your horizons with a working holiday in Australia. Our borders are open to the fully vaccinated with no need to quarantine.

Join leading Australian trainer Danny O'Brien at one of his three training facilities. The stable has won the Big Three - Melbourne Cup, Cox Plate and Caulfield Cup and the 22-time Group 1 winning trainer has on-course stables at the famed Flemington racecourse in Melbourne as well as on-course at Geelong Racecourse (just an hour from Melbourne). The jewel of the crown for O'Brien is his private beachside training facility at 13th Beach (which is just over an hour from Melbourne).

We are always on the lookout for experienced and enthusiastic track riders and stablehands to join our successful team based in the state of Victoria.

Our stables are based in Melbourne or close to an hour of Melbourne, and our Geelong and 13th Beach facilities are in close proximity to the famed 13th Beach and Bells Beach.

To become an integral part of our team the ideal candidate must be experienced in a thoroughbred racing stable through trackwork riding or as a stablehand.

Wages will be competitive and attractive salary packages are negotiable dependent on your level of experience.

Hours of work from Monday to Sunday (slightly vary from stable to stable):
Mornings: 6am – 11am
Afternoons: 2.30pm – 5pm

Working on a roster, you will have 1-2 afternoons off per week and every 2nd Sunday to explore what Melbourne or the beach has to offer.

Accommodation is subject to availability.

This is a tremendous opportunity to join a thriving Group 1 winning stable and work and holiday in Victoria.
