Shane Nichols Racing is a boutique training operation based less than 60 minutes from Melbourne in picturesque Mornington, which encompasses all that the Peninsula Region is about: friendly people, a serene location, fresh air, and a unique environment for humans and horses.
Shane Nichols Racing is one of the few training and racing operations situated close to Melbourne that embraces a truly personalised approach to both horses and their owners. With a maximum of 30 horses in work at any one time, the preferred method of communication is via the owner’s choice of personal contact whether that is phone call, text message or email.
The Shane Nichols Racing approach to horse management is in alignment with this ethos, with Shane personally overseeing the management of each horse’s preparation on a daily basis. Horses are stabled on Shane’s properties on Mornington Racing Centre which provides the benefits of year round grass track gallops (7 days of the week) and an all weather sand track surface that has recently been upgraded. Utilisation of the steeplechase course allows for variation of work patterns on the flat or hill surfaces.
Owners are encouraged to be involved with their horse’s preparation and are welcomed by Shane Nichols Racing friendly staff at track work or on race day.
As an owner, the only way to understand the service and value of the Shane Nichols Racing experience is to come and see the operation for yourself.
