One of Eliza Park’s favourite sons in David Grant (left) has returned to the fold, taking up the all-important role of the soon-to-be-very-busy Stallion Manager.
David previously worked at Eliza Park for four years – initially in the dual role as yearling manager and sales – before concentrating on stallion nominations for the his final two years with the stud.
A tremendous horseman who initially worked as foreman for his brother Michael (a leading trainer in Perth), David landed a job at the Irish National Stud where he worked in the foaling unit before becoming yearling manager.
It was during his time in Ireland that he met David Somers, who suggested he head home to Oz to play a role at Eliza Park.
Seeking a more hands on role, David was lured to Devon Park Stud as manager before subsequent stud managerial positions at Cromartry Park in Perth and at Emirates Park in Victoria.
Fortunately, Eliza Park was able to again secure David’s services for stallion services and he’s looking forward to a busy and rewarding season ahead: “With 11 stallions on board, there certainly won’t be much time for us to sit around and discuss the weather, but I’m looking forward to the challenge and have a really good team around me.
“Eliza Park clearly has the premier stallion line-up in Victoria and with the addition of horses like Wanted, Bushranger and Sharkbite to the ranks, I believe there are exciting times ahead.”
