Pat Hyland enjoyed a highly successful and fulfilling career as a professional jockey, winning over 30 Group 1 races including the Melbourne Cup, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate, Golden Slipper and over 50 country cups. After retiring from riding, Pat and wife Maree searched for a location with a natural environment for horses to reside whilst being trained from the state of the art facilities of the Cranbourne Training Complex. Pat Hyland Racing was established and now, 22 years later, Pat has created amazing success as a professional horse trainer.

Throughout what is considered a short training career to date, Pat has had some memorable success and highlights including six Group 1 winners, twelve Group 2 winners and over 10 Group 3 winners as well as listed races, Grand National Hurdle and steeple and country cup wins.

Pat’s hands on approach, working daily in the stable and riding trackwork each morning, enables him to assess each horse in the stable and it’s campaigns progress personally, drawing on over 40 years of experience and skills.

Over Pat’s time in racing he has seen the industry evolve in more ways than one. We look forward to an insight into some of the superstars and characters of the turf that Pat has known and his view on the SPORT OF KINGS today — a sport that is such a major part of our rich Australian History!
