|Macavity salutes for new stable|
|Tue, 08 November, 2016|
Simon Miller has been involved with horses since before he could walk. He has racing in his blood and was always destined to forge a career on the race track.
In his early teens Simon started to think seriously of a career in racing, and not long after joined the stable of Charlie Goggin where he worked weekends and school holidays.
After successfully finishing his schooling Simon was drawn into the business world but the lure of the horses rang loud and he returned to the familiar sounds of racing stables.
Charlie Goggin provided Simon with a solid back ground in horses but after three years, Simon made the move to the stables of leading Cranbourne trainer Robbie Griffiths.
Simon found his niche at the Griffiths stable and quickly rose through the ranks to be Assistant Trainer. In this time Simon was responsible for horses such as Dandy Kid, Big Pat and Solar Antiquity.
With six extremely successful years at the Griffiths stable under his belt, Simon received a phone call from Sydney trainer John O'Shea. The offer to move north to take up the position of Assistant Trainer was hard to refuse and Simon was quickly off to take up the new role.
As assistant to O'Shea, Simon had another tutor in which he could better learn his trade. Top liners Racing To Win, Reigning To Win, Fast'n'Famous, Fooram and Safwa were in the stables winning feature races. However as the team prepared for the spring of 2007 equine influenza hit Sydney and racing ground to a halt.
It was at this time that an offer to train in Perth under the Aquanita name was made to Simon. He readily accepted, but before heading west, spent a further six months under the guidance of Aquanita Caulfield trainers Tony Vasil and Robert Smerdon.
With his degree in race horse training complete, Simon will oversee Aquanita's foray into the west.
Since he has landed in the West Simon has had a great impact with the likes of Late Night Flight, Black Nijinsky, Glenmore, West River Boy and others his attention to detail, professionalism and strike rate are second to none.
