LITTLE STEPS, BIG DREAMS
The Stridyl team have over 60 years of experience working in racing across the globe and are on a mission to make ownership possible for everyone. It’s fair to say we’ve gotten to know some of the biggest names in racing over that time and heard all sorts of interesting and insightful stories – stories and knowledge that are worth sharing.
That’s why we’ve made Stridyl an open platform, meaning you’ll never run out of interesting podcasts or curated content to keep you entertained and informed on all things racing.
David Rorison: Managing Director
David’s career in the thoroughbred industry started as a stablehand, working for leading racing operations in the UK. He then moved to Australia where he gained knowledge in the breeding sector with Godolphin and added bloodstock experience to his skill set with Inglis Digital. He has also held roles with the Gai Waterhouse stable and Michael Freedman Racing. During this time, David realised that technology and its ability to connect with and grow the relationship with clients was being underutilised in the racing industry.
David then embarked on a new venture and pioneered Rorison Media in 2018, a business that produces engaging video and promotional content to improve a stable’s ability to communicate with their clients and a wider audience. This has enabled David to work with Australia’s premier breeding operations, racing stables and industry participants.
Hayley Blythe Devlin-Rorison: Creative Director
Hayley has dedicated her entire working career to the thoroughbred industry across the globe. She has gained experience in all facets of the industry including breeding, yearling preparation and selection, racing and beyond. Her skills have been crafted with Godolphin and trainers Clive Cox, Grahame Begg and Joseph Pride with whom Hayley held the position of racing manager prior to joining Stridyl.
She is the voice of The Thoroughbred Network Podcast and is passionate about sharing the industry with a wider audience. Hayley’s love of the thoroughbred extends beyond work as she events her own off the track thoroughbreds and has been instrumental in finding new homes for retired racehorses.
Morgan Meyer-Clipperton: Business Manager
Morgan is somewhat of a newcomer to the thoroughbred industry. Joining the Australian Turf Club marketing and sponsorship team in 2015, she quickly learnt of the depth that this industry has to offer.
Over the years, Morgan has been lucky to travel and experience other racing jurisdictions globally, including 2.5 years in Asia’s racing capital, Hong Kong.
Upon returning to Australia, Morgan has held positions in industry-based marketing agencies. Working closely with leading participants and brands to create content and learning the intricacies of the Australia’s breeding operations. Outside of Stridyl Morgan manages her cattle operation in the lower Hunter region.
Haylee Day: Junior Marketing Coordinator
Some would say Haylee was born with horse racing in her blood. Her childhood years were spent around the harness racing stables of her parents in Goulburn, NSW where her ‘love of the horse’ began and extended to horse education through the retraining and breaking in young horses for her father’s clients.
This led Haylee to follow her passion for horse riding and branch out into the thoroughbred industry where she secured her first role as a trackwork rider for Hall of Fame trainer, the late Guy Walter. From there, Haylee fine-tuned her skills, not only with the horses themselves but behind the scenes as well through opportunities to work alongside multiple Group 1 winning trainer Kerry Parker and the formidable father and son duo of Peter & Paul Snowden where she most recently proved instrumental to their marketing team.
