TRAINERS PROFILE: MICK PRICE AND MICHAEL KENT JNR
Mick Price has firmly established himself as one of Australia’s leading racehorse trainers since taking out his licence in 1991.
In 2003 Mick trained the trifecta in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Preview with Halibery, Gaelic Princess and Roedean, while World Peace took out the race for the stable in 2004.
Mick kept his fantastic record with two-year-olds intact by winning both the colts and fillies divisions of the Blue Diamond Preludes in 2005 with Perfectly Ready and Doubting.
In 2007 he continued his stakes winning trend by taking out the Group 1 Underwood Stakes with Rubiscent, the Group 2 Sandown Guineas with Schilling and the Group 3 Sandown Stakes with Gotta Have Heart, just to name a few.
Mick Price on Michael Kent – “Exciting to have him aboard. Very well educated both personally and professionally and a rider who can provide expert feedback.”
“All I have ever aspired to is be a good horse trainer. I now have that opportunity and I am going to make it work. I am walking into a Group One winning stable and our aim is to become better and better at what we do…” Michael Kent (Jnr)
