Kyle Marshall Racing to relocate to Cranbourne, Victoria

posted in: News

Kyle Marshall Racing have announced plans to relocate to Cranbourne, Victoria, in the first half of 2023.

Head of Racing Kyle Marshall said the move opens up many opportunities for him and horses that will be stabled at the Cranbourne training facility, about 40 minutes from central Melbourne.

“We believe this is a move that needs to be done sooner than later. I and my partner, Sophie Jefferies, are looking to give the move 110% and we really appreciate the support that’s been given so far,” Marshall said.

Marshall will take horses across the Tasman to set up the Kyle Marshall Racing operation in Victoria.

Trainers based at Cranbourne have full access to three training tracks, including a 950-metre race track, a 1200-metre jog track and a 600-metre sand track.

The home track hosts 26 meetings a year and two neighbouring clubs race 24 times a year.

Cranbourne also hosts 26 trials a year.

“The facilities are excellent,” Marshall said. “We’re really looking forward to a fresh start.”

While looking forward to the new-look operation, Marshall said he will miss the people who had supported him at Cambridge, especially in 2022.

To them, he said: “Without your support and faith in me as a trainer, I would not have been able to continue to grow and succeed as a business in the harness racing industry.”

Marshall said KMR had enjoyed a good year, taking all six yearlings bought at the 2021 yearling sales to the racetrack.

“I was fortunate enough to travel south with two of those (Son of Mac and Yogi Son) with Son of Mac running third in the Harness Millions final which was a massive highlight for me.”

Marshall said the stable had a two-year-old colt and a two-year-old filly due to qualify in February, and they would complement the older horses on the team, providing plenty to look forward to in 2023.
