The team of staff and specialist personnel are an integral part of the success of Cadet Lodge. They all share the same passion for the horse as Greg and therefore their commitment to the day to day running of this training complex is second to none.
We are always looking for good staff and often have positions available.
Please call Sarah in the office on 03 59964599 to enquire about our job vacancies.
Jim doesn't need an introduction to most. A G1 winning trainer in his own right with a Caulfield Cup winner under his belt he is a huge asset to the stables. He brings a world of experience to the table and is an extremely caring and astute horseman.
Jim's role with us is very much hands on and he overseas each and every horse on a daily basis before and after they work. His attention to detail and level of care is second to none. He is also in charge of booking jockeys and liases very closely with Greg to decide race programming for our horses.
CROWN EQUINE VETERINARY SERVICES - DR BEN MASON
Having a good vet is essential in any racing stable and we are confident we have one of the best with Crown Equine Veterinary Services as our stable veterinarians headed by Dr Ben Mason who is an exceptional diagnostician and provides our horses with state of the art equipment and World Class Veterinarians specialising in all aspects of racehorse practice.
The Practice has borrowed from Benjamin Franklin with the belief that "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
Sarah has been riding and competing all her life and has always worked with animals. Starting as a Veterinary Nurse & riding track work in her home town of Bendigo. In 1998 she decided to make racing her career, kicking off with a year at Lee Freedman’s before joining the David Hall stables where she was a leading hand for 5 years, followed by a couple of years managing agistment at Vinery Stud and working for herself breaking/educating race and show horses before a serious spinal injury saw her step into a behind the desk role with John Mcardle for two years before she joined Greg's team as Racing Manager where she has been firm entrenched since 2007.
She is very actively involved in all aspects of the stable, is first port of call for any owner enquiries and is very proud of her achievements over the years in rehoming our Off The Track horses to lives after racing.
Di has been on the team for quite a few years now and is responsible for the general running of the office, accounts payable/receivable and payroll. Her role is varied and she has a very broad knowledge of the day to day runnings of the stable.
Whilst her role isn't hands on with the horses Di loves her horse racing and is often seen at Cranbourne Races and on big feature days like the Caulfield Guineas.
Some of our very long term clients may remember Fiona from many years ago as she used to be a senior team member back in our Ballarto road stable days (yes it was quite a while ago!)
Fiona left us to get married and have kids etc but when she wanted to come back to racing Greg was very pleased to be able to offer her a role in the stables.
Fiona is a great asset to the team and oversees the staff every morning making sure things run smoothly and taking care of the general day to day administration.
Fiona is also our resident Treadmill guru - she has spent many an hour working our treadmill horses and has it down to a fine art!
Not only is she a valuable staff member she is also actively involved with ownership in a number of handy horses over the years and is often seen at the races saddling up and always willing to catchup with our owners for a chat about their horses who she knows inside out.
