The studs have selected ready-to-run horses, so there’s no waiting for a yearling to be broken in and pre-trained before you can see your horse hit the track. We will be racing as soon as you join up!

The SRC stable is represented by stud farms in the heart of horse country in Cambridge and Masterton. We always endeavour to make it easy for you to keep connected to your stable through trainer visits and stud tours. We have a strong focus on horse welfare, from their racing career right through to life after racing. Our aim is to provide you with front-row insights into what it takes to prepare and care for high-performing thoroughbreds, while educating and strengthening your connection to the sport and horse.

The Stride Racing Club Syndicate looks after the racing side of the club - authorised by the sport’s governing body NZ Thoroughbred Racing. See full details here.

Louisiana Man has finished his brief break to freshen up at Lansdowne Park and has now returned to Foote Racing Stables. His coat has come up and he's put on some nice condition. We're expecting a strong preparation where hopefully we'll see him break the maiden ranks and work through the grades over time.

Since stylishly winning his South Island debut (check out his win here), He's The Man has struggled with firm tracks and wide draws. With winter now upon us we'll keep him on the fresh side to tackle upcoming assignments. He's certainly a horse with considerable ability and now just needs the conditions to suit.

Our stunning Per Incanto - World Away filly has had her initial prep at Sharrock Racing and is currently spelling for 6 weeks. She'll come into work to prepare for Spring racing at the end of June. She's a 2yo half sister to smart 3yo Karman Line, so we're looking forward to some fun with her next season.





He's The Man

5 year-old Snitzel gelding

Stride Racing Club is really excited to announce that HE’S THE MAN has joined the racing team. HE’S THE MAN is a royally bred gelding, the son of SNITZEL and the Group 1 winning mare SHARVASTI. Snitzel stands at stud for a service fee of AUD$165,000 so very rarely will opportunities like this occur. HE’S THE MAN is a race winning gelding in the Stephen Marsh barn, he last raced in the North Island at Ellerslie on Boxing Day finishing 5th. He joined the Marsh stable in the South Island recently and has already posted his first win - check out his impressive win at Ashburton on St Patrick's Day.



Stephen Marsh

Trainer

As the trainer of five Group One winners including the 2019 New Zealand Derby with Crown Prosecutor, Stephen continues to excel year on year. After a record breaking season in terms of winners in 2018/19, having trained 97 winners, Stephen had a stellar Covid-impacted year in 2019/20 finishing 2nd on the trainers’ premiership, as he did in 2020/21. He has established himself as one of the top trainers in New Zealand.

Per Incanto - World Away filly


She’s a lovely 2yo Per Incanto filly out of World Away (out of a Group 1 winning mare from the US). 

Per Incanto has been flying of late being the top sire in Hong Kong this past season. This filly is World Away’s second foal with the first being ultra-impressive first-start winner Karman Line check this out. Our filly was broken in back in April and had a stint in training before heading out for a break. She’s back in pre-training and will be trained by Allan Sharrock who has one of the best strike-rates around. Can’t wait to see what this filly can do on the track. She’s a big, impressive filly so hopefully she can run up to her looks.


Allan Sharrock

Trainer


One of the best in the business, Allan has a strike-rate second to none. A leading trainer in the central/lower North Island our World Away filly will be in great hands.

Louisiana Man

Vadamos - Cajun Two Step
3 year-old gelding

Louisiana Man is an impressive, athletic gelding with a bright future. By red-hot sire Vadamos, Louisiana Man is a dual trial winner who's had had two strong placings - a win isn't far away. Check out his  run at Pukekohe on 23rd March - he fought on extremely well on an unsuitable soft track. After a month's break he's now back in work with Ben Foote.

 


Ben Foote

Trainer

Ben Foote is a Cambridge-based trainer with a knack of training smart horses including Travelling Light, Babylon Berlin and Sakura Blossom.  He’s the trainer of several Group and Stakes winners and largely flies under the radar.

An astute trainer and top-notch horseman he really knows how to set a horse for a race. He's built a great relationship with Louisiana Man - we're sure he can maximise his considerable talent.
