Kylie Gavenlock’s early life revolved around her devotion to horses and her love for the NSW Central Coast. Now at age 57 Kylie is still based at Gosford, and is in her fourth decade as a professional trainer. She begins by talking about the Gosford Race Club’s plans for expansion as a training centre.

Kylie talks of the 75 acre property at nearby Somersby which gives her horses the “best of both worlds”.

The trainer pays tribute to her elderly Mum who still helps out around the farm.

Kylie looks back on her early days as a trackwork rider  and pays tribute to the veteran trainers who helped to get her started.

The talented horsewoman talks of teenage daughter Skye and husband Terry, a former top flight Rugby League forward.

She pays a fitting tribute to pioneer syndicator Harry Lawton, one of the first to recognise her affinity with horses.

Kylie looks back on the special horses who’ve shaped her career.

She speaks affectionately of a talented apprentice who has since developed into a multiple Gr 1 winning jockey.

Kylie talks about her association with John Singleton, another owner to appreciate her ability with horses.

She closes by acknowledging the efforts of a long time stable foreman and two valued track riders.
