Malua to make mark

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Malua Racing is a new racing stable in Melbourne and are fast making a name for themselves as one of the best in the business.

The team includes

  • Troy Corstens as Racing Manager.
  • John Sadler as Head Trainer.
  • Brent Stanley as Assitant Trainer.   


And they are backed up by other great staff. Troy, John and Brent are all highly respected people in the racing industry and have a great amount of knowledge each, but when put together can offer people a unique chance to race horses with such astute horsemen in their new business.


Amongst their strong stable are Epic Dragon, Under The Hat, Heidilicious, Flat Chat, Rusticated and The Chevron. I thought it would be good to catch up with Brent Stanley to see how The Chevron and Heidilicious are heading into the weekend.

As well documented Heidilicious has missed the start hopelessly it’s last two starts costing it dearly, and has had to have a successful jump out to race this weekend. She wore a barrier blanket and jumped well, and now the team are keen to take on the Derby with the classy filly. Brent said she has pleased the camp since the oaks, she will wear a tongue tie as well in the derby and they are looking forward to her lining up.

I also asked Brent about The Chevron. “We will sit on the fence to see if he gets into the derby or not, he might get to first or second emergency. If he doesn’t run in the derby he can go to the Brisbane cup.” Stanley told us.

With the rain predicted Saturday the stable are not to worried about The Chevron as he has won in the wet, but the filly is untried.

There are two others that I have a lot of time for in the Malua stable and I couldn’t leave without asking Brent for a quick comment on Flat Chat and Epic Dragon. “Epic Dragon will run Saturday at Flemington second up and his first up run was very pleasing. And Flat Chat is back in work on his way to the spring.” Brent commented.

There is no doubt this stable is making their mark and are going to be a real force wherever they take horses. They also have a good website that is worth checking out and an interesting concept called the Malua stayers fund:
