In Episode One of this documentary series, we’ve been granted unprecedented access by some of Australia’s leading thoroughbred stud farms to document their foal’s journey from birth through to becoming a racehorse. We’ll be documenting the formative stages of a select group of foal’s life and their dams with the people involved who raise, care, and educate our racehorses. You’ll witness the precious early stages of foal’s life as they take their first breathe, first steps and understand the processes each stud and their experienced team of staff take to ensure the foals are given the greatest opportunity to be healthy and successful.
In this episode, we accompany the Australian thoroughbred auction houses of Magic Millions and William Inglis as they inspect nearly 10,000 yearlings entered by the stud farms for their 2023 sales season.
In celebration of #BlackHistoryMonth, Leading The Way series 2 continues as we visit Kendrick Carmouche. Carmouche discusses his career in the saddle, his journey as a jockey and reflects upon the history of African-American jockeys in US horse racing.
An inspirational group making a real difference in the Compton community, changing and in some case saving lives, the group was set up by 10 childhood friends on a mission to challenge stereotypes around African-Americans and horseback riding.
