GETTING TO KNOW HAYLEE DAY...

Oct 22, 2019

Q: WHERE ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM AND WHAT IS YOUR BACKGROUND

A: I was born in Goulburn NSW and have spent most of my childhood years there.

Q: WHEN DID YOU FIRST GET INTERESESTED IN HORSESA: My Dad was involved in Harness Racing so my interest in horses started from a very young age. I always had ponies growing up and I decided to leave school at 15 and start working. I would help Dad at track work – driving the Harness Horses. I then got involved in breaking the horses in from about the age of 16. At about 17, I started working for Guy Walter at his Goulburn stables and started riding track-work for him. After Guy passed away I moved to Wollongong and spent about 18 months with Kerry Parker. After that I have been with the Snowdens ever since.


Q: WHAT GIVES YOU THE MOST SATISFACTION WORKING WITH HORSES AND BEING IN RACING
A: The learning and development process – watching the young horses develop with training and racing and hopefully graduate to become good horses.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HORSE
A: At the moment it is Zavance – she gives me the most satisfaction and is so honest but Pariah was my ultimate favourite.

Q: WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE IN RACING
A: There is so much to learn in the racing business – not just about the horse, the training and travel side of things but also the administration side. I am currently working in the office and this gives me a greater understanding in what is involved in running a Horse Racing Stable. I just want to learn as much as I can about the whole business.

Q: WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF WORKING WITH SNOWDEN RACING
A: In a word – opportunity. If you are prepared to work hard for Snowden Racing, the opportunity is there to learn, better yourself, and have a successful career.

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANY INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF RACING
A: Horses and racing take pretty much take up all of my time but I do like to keep active and spend time with family & friends.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOTY TEAM

A: The South Sydney Rabbitohs
