Swapping the saddle for the stopwatch in 2006 Mitch Newman set out with the ambition to provide a premium training service with a work ethic to match.
Claiming the Apprenticeship Title his master also won on multiple occasions, Mitch under Ron Quinton shone through the New South Wales riding ranks with his incredible knack for horses. With his mantelpiece filling with raceday silverware the infectious talent lost his ‘battle with the bulge’ much to the disappointment of the Sydney riding ranks.
These days the cabinet is being filled with silverware of a different kind in his quest to further enhance his résumé from his Hawkesbury based stable. With 10-15 horses in work at any one time Mitch aims to provide a boutique and hands-on training experience focusing on attention to detail.
Broadening his horizons to spend time with the prestigious Darley Stud, Mitch has also gained a reputable title as a pre-trainer preparing horses for leading Syndey trainers including Gerald Ryan, Bjorn Baker and Joe Pride.
With a reputation for being a particular, passionate and gifted horseman Mitch has turned these skills into an asset in the Horse Racing industry. Mitch recognizes that raceday strategy and placement of his horses is just as paramount as there condition.
Working on the mission statement 'the harder you work the luckier you get' you can ensure Mitch will be going the extra mile to ensure each of his thoroughbreds is given every opportunity to succeed on the racetrack.
Mitch assigns grey gelding Net Worth as his career achievement - having been with three leading metropolitan trainers prior to coming into Mitch's care. The horse had lost his form and zest for racing but thanks to the patience and hands-on treatment was able to win at metropolitan level in just his third run for the stable.
