Former top jockey turned trainer, Garth Puller is now a force to be reckoned with in the South African training ranks. See more here, on how this professional outfit ticks over.

A horseman by nature he has excelled in conditioning racehorses since 1 August 2012, when he trained his first runner which ended up being a winner. That was a filly called Foreign Gal, ridden by Anton Marcus and many more have followed since. It is his attention to detail and passion for the game that has bought a lot of success to his yard.

“I get to Summerveld just before 04h00 in the morning and leave after 18h30 in the evenings. I am busy all day with the horses, staff, administration and customer communication. Naturally I wouldn’t be committed if I didn’t love what I do, and I believe hard work pays dividends no matter what kind of work one does.”

The Hollywood Syndicate currently has Uncle Charlie and Simply Russian under the care of Garth and both horses are ticking over nicely.
