Stable Shout - Gavin Smith

This month’s Stable Shout winner is Gavin Smith.

The Stable Shout is a monthly award from the HRNZ Owners Sub Committee to recognize trainers who are going the extra mile to deliver exceptional service to their owners.

Gavin was nominated by owners Diane Radcliffe and Ian Kedzlie, who had the following to say:

“We would like to nominate Gavin Smith for the Stable Shout. Gavin is always very approachable even on race day when he is extremely busy, he is always friendly and happy to discuss any concerns.

We have shares in seven horses with Gavin including Scarlett Banner and Bright Diamond who are currently racing.

Gavin sends regular texts and emails and we are always up to date as to where the horses are in their preparation, any problems, nominations and updates after each race/workout/ trial.

Gavin is a very sincere hardworking young trainer and driver with a real passion for the industry and the wellbeing of his horses.

As owners we rate Gavin very highly and consider him worthy of the shout.”

Gavin will now receive $100 to shout himself and the staff morning tea to celebrate their wonderful performance in customer service.
