Trainer Profile – Gary Colvin

October 8, 2021No Comments

 

Gary’s father, Fred Colvin, was an amateur jockey and trainer and his brothers Noel and John were professional Jockeys. He moved from Tullibigeal (Western Districts) to work in Wagga in 1973. When Fred moved to Wagga from Tullibigeal where he trained a small team of horses, Gary and Fred teamed up and purchased land opposite the Wagga Racecourse in 1984 and built 6 stables. They then increased the stables capacity to 12 in 1986. This is when Fred retired, and Gary took over the reins, only hobby training and renting some boxes out to friends. It wasn’t until horses started to increase He decided to train full-time, building a new stable complex in 2004 to accomodate for the increase in our team. Now they are equipped with an indoor horse swimming pool and a 10 horse walker.
