My Association with Wylie Dalziel began many years ago when he and Roy Higgins began their horse racing syndications. Since Roy’s passing, Wylie has continued having great success with many winners. I have encouraged many of my friends and acquaintances to come on board to share in the excitement. I still remember my first win with Lord Soffel in a Ballarat maiden ridden by The Gauch. This thrill and the comradery of the syndication have kept me in involved over the years. Communication by phone email and video are second to none.
You know at any given time exactly where your horse is and weekly video reports advise how it is progressing. I have always found Wylie to be honest and frank in his assessment of his horses and his actions reflect this. Last Saturday I had my first Group One runner in the Oakleigh Plate although he didn’t win, having a horse start favourite in a Group One was a dream come true. Wylie is a hard-working family man who I am proud to call my friend.
