Angela Smith joined the Ascot Bloodstock stable trainers list last year when she successfully took over the reins of Successful Spin.
Based in Wagin on her own property and with her own uphill sand track, Angela is best known for her stunning efforts with former rogue Time Frame, who won the 1997 Perth Cup. Angela won nine races with Time Frame, coming out of the Fred Kersley stables, with total winnings of almost $475,000.
A former apprentice jockey in New Zealand, Angela is ably assisted by husband Malcolm who does all the trackwork riding and strapping. Each year, the two support the Albany / Mount Barker circuits in the summer months, followed by five months a year chasing the sun in Broome, where they take a team of horses.
With a truck to make most professional trainers envious, Angela and Malcolm are equipped to travel anywhere in the state, with Wagin only a few short hours from most tracks, including Ascot and Belmont.
Angela prides herself in keeping happy and healthy horses and maintains a close connection with her stable performers, who generally excel in the bush environment she provides.
