2022

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

Home for a month as the WA border is closed to Queenslanders because of Covid. Loving the extra time with the baby. looking fwd to summer so we can swim. I brought a SHOTGUN baby bike seat for my mountain bike and have been cycling with the baby every day.. … ALOT of FuN and great bonding time.

Other Things … Working at Telfer is going well. Su is SUPER buzzy with her Massage business as ALWAYS. Moonshine & Lytafyre have not been doing so well last 12 months of racing. Lytafyre has a leg injury again so we have retired him and Moonshine has a cew issues so she has also retired from racing and has been put to stud.

We have our new horse MYBELLADONNA that has just started racing in NSW, she is showing alot of promise in her first few races and we hope 2021 – 2022 to be good times for her…. 2 more months intill Alyssa has her 2nd Birthday.
