Her remarkable feats captured the hearts of racing enthusiasts worldwide, and her victory at Royal Ascot in front of the Queen remains a historic moment.

His life took a significant turn when he secured a stable hand’s job with the legendary Tommy Smith in Sydney. Later, he trained in Sydney, Brisbane, and eventually settled in Melbourne, where he clinched four premierships.

Retirement and Return: In 2016, Moody stepped away from training, but his passion for the thoroughbred industry drew him back. He now has stables at Pakenham’s training complex in Tynong.
