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 doesnt 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.

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 life, kicking off with a year at Lee Freedman’s before joining the David Hall stables where she was a leading hand for 5 years, folllowed 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 Mc Ardle for two years before she joined Greg's team as Racing Administrator 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 joined the team at Cadet nearly 3 years ago and has very quickly established herself as an integral part of the team. She is responsible for the general day to day running of the accounts office and is always happy to make herself available to help in any areas she can.
An active owner, Di loves her horse racing and is a very enthusiastic part owner in "Platinum Ruler" and keen race goer with her family.
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 overseas the stable base every morning making sure things run smoothly and taking care of the general day to day administration.
Not only is she a valuable staff member she is also a proud part owner in We've Got This and is often seen at the races and always willing to catchup with our owners for a chat about their horses who she knows inside out.
