Welcome to Garnett Taylor Racing

Garnett Taylor Racing is located Sunshine Coast, a family thoroughbred racing stable, which has so much to offer owners and their horses.

Garnett took out his trainers licence in 1993, and has been established in Caloundra for the past 2 years. Garnett works with the support and hands on assistance of his wife, Kaye, and daughter Alisha, jockey to the stable. Sons, Clinton, a former jockey, works the property and assists in the stable when required and Cameron rides work, although more recently spends much of his time riding bulls in rodeos!

Based on course at Caloundra, we have access to a variety of facilities, which enables the flexibility to train horses as individuals at all times.

As a hands on trainer it is not unfamiliar to see Garnett Taylor and Co. working horses on the beach and taking full advantage of the track facilities providing the best of both worlds for their team of horses.

"As a family run business, you can rest assured staff are always on time, our location means our fees are competitive with the horses trained in the city and at the same time racing for the same money, adding great value for our owners"

Success and Highlights include winning the Capricorn Classic three times in 2008 with Falverosa, 2011 with Bonny The Viper and Zerocity in 2012 and one of Garnetts earlier successful gallopers was Speedie Gonzales who raced 31 times for 9 wins, two of those were at Eagle Farm. Divine City recently retired won 6 races from only 28 starts 4 of them wins being in metropolitan meetings.

"We focus on a relaxed training style, hands on, patience and attention to detail. We welcome our owners to be a part of the stable, and always endeavour to keep them informed on their horses progress, we believe that the racing experience with Garnett Taylor Racing is the ultimate one and invite you to join us for one hell of a ride!" - Garnett Taylor
