MICHAEL'S PROFILE

WELCOME

It’s a euphoric feeling celebrating your horse’s win ! 

Welcome to Michael’s website and the exciting world of horse racing in Singapore.

Let Michael walk you through the process of owning a racehorse, and you’ll learn how enjoyable, cost effective and financially rewarding the experience can be.

The excitement of cheering your own horse to victory and the post race celebrations is an experience of a lifetime. An exhilarating time in which having a personal photo taken with your winning racehorse, horse trainer and jockey in the winners enclosure will serve as a constant lifetime reminder of this awesome experience.

Corporations are also invited to come racing with Michael, as racing a racehorse is an ideal way for employees to socialise and bond away from the office in a relaxed and friendly environment – a common interest will bring your team closer together.

Michael will ensure you’ll get to know other racehorse Owners by arranging social functions in the Owners Lounge of the Singapore Turf Club during Friday night and Sunday afternoon race meetings, and at his stables on Saturday mornings.

Please take an informative tour of our website and see how easy it is to become involved.

OUR TEAM

OUR STABLE STAFF

Our enthusiastic and experienced team of stable employees consist of and Administration Executive, an Assistant Trainer, Stable Supervisors, Track Riders, Syces and Farriers.

Ima runs our stable office, Michael White assists Michael with the training of the horses, and Airy, Sidek, Gok and Nizam supervise our Syces.

Vernon runs our social media platforms and website maintenance.

Callum and Zol and his assistant attend to the Farrier works on our horses.

We also have two staff who prepare the daily feeds for all of our horses.

Our Syces handle the horses on a daily basis. They prepare the horses for their morning exercise and wash them down thereafter. 

Our horses all go out for training with our Track Riders or Jockeys, six days a week, Monday to Saturday. Sundays are rest days for our horses.

In the afternoons our Syces care for and clean the horses, thereby establishing a relationship with all of them. This enables the Syces to maintain their horses in top condition.

OUR TRACK RIDERS

Our group of dedicated and skilled Track Riders are responsible for the daily exercising of our horses.

Acang has been track riding for us for over 9 years, and Shafrizal, who is our licensed Apprentice Jockey, head up the co-ordination of our team of Track Riders. They are assisted by Alif, Munir, Ewan, Hud, Epul and Khai. Chew, our trainee Apprentice Jockey, is currently gaining riding experience in Cambridge, New Zealand. All of our riders carry a wealth of riding experience and knowledge with them.

They enjoy their interaction with the horses they ride daily and they get to build a close bond with them.

By following Michael’s daily workout instructions for each horse, they play their part in keeping our horses content, fit and in good form. Their feedback on how the horses are feeling provides a good guide to Michael on every horse’s progress.

MICHAEL AND VERNON

Michael and his son Vernon reside in the Holland Village area of Singapore, close to the city, and a 20 minute drive from the racecourse.

They have been in Singapore since August 1998, and arrived when Vernon was 6 months old.

Vernon is now 21 years old and is currently furthering his studies in Singapore. He is working towards becoming a Life Coach.

They both ride horses, and often partake in leisure riding when on vacation.
