TRAINERS PROFILE: TONY MCEVOY
Tony lives and breathes thoroughbred racing and has done so from a very young age. As an apprentice Jockey in 1975 McEvoy rode more than 100 winners over a short period of time before his weight got away from him. Coming from a riding background has really helped Tony hone his skills as a trainer and continues to attribute to his ability to find quality horses.
McEvoy Mitchell Racing was formed in 2011 when Tony was approached by Melbourne businessman Wayne Mitchell to become his partner and Head Trainer of Lindsay Park ‘Raceside’, now known as ‘Kildalton Park’. The stables success has been building since then and all strategies put in to place are proving to pay dividends.
