Barry Baldwin’s racing life began as an apprentice jockey at Roma in Queensland. He rode a few winners, but by age 18 couldn’t ride under 57kgs.
His training career started in Roma, gravitated to Toowoomba and then to Brisbane where he’s been twice champion trainer.
He picked up a Stradbroke Hcp along the way and has trained many very talented horses.
Barry tells his story in a very earthy way. There’s plenty of Queenslander in this bloke.
