2022 has started off a GOOD YEAR.
1st January …. I finished working at Telfer mine in Western Australia and have now transferred with Macmahons to Dawson South Coal mine @ Moura South East Queensland. Only 4 hours drive from my home, 7 – 7 roster, no more interstate flights to work, No more sleeping at airports, No more getting stuck over the border for months on end. Telfer mine @ Western Australia was a great place to gain experience on the haul truck with CAT 793 D & F haul trucks but at Dawson South I will be driving the NEW Komatsu e830 Electric Haul Trucks. LOVED my time at Telfer but happy to be moving fwd to NEW things.
Moonshine Lady WINS @ Randwick
Also on 1st January …. Moonshine lady had her first race with her new trainer
Kristen Buchanan. The last 12 months she had been plagued with problems and raced so bad that we nearly retired her. We decided to relocate her to NSW in the hop of finding better trainers. She is now with Kristen Buchanan Stables at Wyong NSW, She had her first race with Kristen @ Randwick 1100m on the 1st January 2022, It was a tough field with most of the horses already winning back to back races. Moonshine Lady BLITZED them with a beautiful run leading the whole way and finishing with a good lead over the field. Next race for Moonshine lady with be late January or early Feb…. See Race Video
