Had Glen Colless decided to remain in his native Coffs Harbour, he would have carved out a stellar career riding around the northern rivers.
As soon as his apprenticeship finished with the Trevor Hardy stable, he decided to pull up stakes and head for the Gold Coast- a decision he has never regretted.
He forged a spectacular association with trainer Alan Bailey and got to ride many talented horses. Glen has more than 1000 wins behind him and multiple Gr 1 success. He’s had to overcome the rigours of a couple of freak accidents, but is keener than ever. Great to catch up with one of Queensland’s best.
