Recognised as one of the best jockeys in the world, James McDonald is a high flying sportsman from New Zealand with many racing accolades and over 700 career wins under his belt. Starting from humble beginnings as an apprentice rising at 4am every morning for track work and racing in modest New Zealand events, he moved to Sydney in 2012 to seek a career in Australian racing. Within two years had won two of Australia’s biggest races (Golden Slipper and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes) and topped the Sydney riders premierships.

Katelyn Mallyon became the youngest woman to ride in the Melbourne Cup in 2016, at just 22 years of age. After surviving an almost career-ending fall in 2012, she recovered from a fractured spine, spleen damage, a broken cheekbone and a four-day coma to become the first woman to ride a Group 1 winner in the Moonee Valley races. Katelyn announced her retirement earlier this year after a colourful career and 266 wins.

Starting his career working for local trainers in the small town of Wyndara, Peter Moody came a long way before training one of Australia’s greatest racehorses, Black Caviar. Learning from some of the greatest minds in racing, he made his way from Sydney to Brisbane before finally settling in Melbourne and making a name for himself with four premierships in Australia’s Racing capital.

Hear from all three of these Racing Legends and get the inside scoop on the Spring Racing Carnival at this one-day-only event.
