Trainer Profile - Aiden St Vincent

Based at Coffs Harbour, a tranquil community town on the north coast of New South Wales, Aiden is perfectly positioned to give those horses that require something a little different to what is offered at our metropolitan bases.

Aiden was born and bred in the racing industry, a son of successful and well respected Tamworth trainer Paul St Vincent, he’s been surrounded by the thoroughbreds from an early age. For many years Aiden played a large part of his father’s training operation that was responsible for hundreds of winners including the popular sprinter The Jackal, who twice won the Ramornie Handicap and pocketed over $1 million dollars during his career.

We met and were impressed by Aiden when he managed Chris Munce’s Sunshine Coast satellite stable and supported him in his move to Coffs Harbour. He has excellent on course stabling, restricted use of the course proper, two sand tracks, a roomy “trot up” track and a swimming pool. The jewel in the crown for all Coffs trainers is spectacular Boambee Beach, a 5.7km stretch of paradise on the far North Coast. The beach provides a perfect galloping surface at low tide, while horses can be waded “chest high” when the tide is in.

Whenever we’ve sent Aiden a horse that needs to drop in class from the metropolitan competition, a change to a more relaxed environment, to take advantage of the benefits Boambee Beach offers, or to try and capitalise on BOBS bonuses, we have found he does a fantastic job getting them to the winners stall. He’s hands on and has the advantage of riding a majority of his own work. And he’s always happy to travel them from Brisbane to Sydney and everywhere in between in order  to place them in the best races. He provides our owners with open and transparent communication and does it with the biggest smile you’ll ever find on a race track – and why not? He and his horses spend their days working in paradise!
