THE MORTON RACING STORY

THE MORTON RACING STORY

    

Dan Morton commenced as a trainer in 2003 and now has one of the leading stables in WA. He is a highly regarded trainer, having pulled off many big wins in some of the greatest races both in Australia and overseas.

Working closely with each horse and with his background as a professional jockey, Dan often rides track work in their preparation, giving him an advantage of knowing where horses are at heading into a race. Together Dan and his father Len have over 40 years of experience in the racing industry and lead a dedicated and talented team who bring their skills and knowledge from many countries around the world.

Dan attributes his success not only to his parents, Len and Annette, but also to his loyal band of staff headed up by stable foreman, Kelly Kinninmont. He hand picks exceptional staff with the same passion and drive and it is very much a team effort.

Both Dan and father, Len, possess a keen eye to find a good horse. Stable stars, Scenic Shot and Scenic Blast were both purchased through the same thorough process they go through with every horse, which includes examining everything from the pedigree to inspecting the yearlings.

Morton Racing are renowned for their ability to travel horses, not just to the major race carnivals throughout Australia, but also internationally. Sensational campaigns interstate and across the world, including triumph at the prestigious Royal Ascot meeting in England, comes down to the attention to detail. Morton Racing's motivated team leave no stone unturned in each horse's day to day training needs and this is what has cemented Morton Racing as a leading racing team in Western Australia.

Morton Racing agist a number of horses on their rural property in the fertile area of Pingelly, approximately 100kms from Perth. The intention is to develop this property and expand the operation to include pre-training, and an ideal alternative to city training for those horses looking for a change of environment or a 'refresh'.
