In Part 1 Steve brings us up to date with his current role at the famous Macedon Lodge training complex.
He reflects on his apprenticeship to trainer John Meagher and his early winners.
He remembers that first exciting Group 1 victory in the SA Oaks, and John Meagher’s move to Flemington when the developers took over the Epsom training precinct.
He reflects on his friendship with Leon Corstens, the man who was instrumental in securing him the ride on Let’s Elope. In Part 1 Steve looks back on the great mare’s wins in the Caulfield Cup and LKS McKinnon Stakes.
