In 2021 Tom Dabernig made the decision to establish his own business and relocated to Warrnambool, Victoria in an exciting new chapter. Having worked his whole life at Lindsay Park with his family it was a big decision to come to and not an easy one to make.

With the support of his own young family he made the move to establish his own training operation. Tom has the experience and desire to continue to evolve as a trainer. He is passionate about the country environment as a preferred place to train horses and is eager to incorporate the beach and all of the facilities that Warrnambool has to offer into his training regime.
