WELCOME GLEN AND KATE

Ballymore Stables (Australia) is pleased to announce the appointment of Glen Thompson as assistant trainer.

For Thompson, it marks a return to Flemington having run the Patinack Farm stable operation and he is excited to be back.

“I couldn’t be happier really,” Thompson said. “I knew Mike from my time here and would always see him at yearling sales around the country so when he spoke to me about joining him it was literally an offer I couldn’t refuse.”

Thompson was granted his own training license in 2015 after leaving Flemington and had stables at Eagle Farm where he prepared several winners from a small team. Family reasons took him back to Warwick Farm in 2017 and now he is happy to be back involved in racing.

“When Mike spoke to me about joining he didn’t have to sell it - he’s a Melbourne Cup winning trainer after all so to be a part of the Ballymore team is particularly exciting,” Thompson said.

“We had Group 1 winners like Nechita, Gathering and Small Minds for Patinack trained out of Flemington and I’m looking forward to being part of a Group One stable again at Ballymore.

“I’ve been back now for a couple of weeks getting my hands dirty and the staff have been terrific, welcoming and easy to get along with so I’m looking forward now to pumping out the winners.”

For Ballymore it is a double victory as Glen’s fiancee Kate is an internationally recognised trackwork rider and she has embraced the return to Flemington with open arms.

“For me, Flemington has the best training facilities in Australia and I love riding here,” Kate said. “I’ve already worked out a couple of favourite horses here and like Glen, I can’t wait to see what the future brings.”

Mike Moroney said Glen and Kate joining Ballymore strengthens an already solid Group One team.

“I’m personally delighted to have Glen and Kate join us,” Moroney said. ‘I know what a world-class horseman Glen is and when we knew he would be interested it did not take us long to sort it out and I’m so happy that they both decided to come to us.

“I’m looking forward to having Glen with me sharing a lot of the day to day hands on with the horses and race day work as well. Having him on the team is a real value add for the business and I’m glad to say we are already seeing the benefits.”
