Summerveld based Trainer Corinne Bestel only has just over a dozen horses in her care, but she is a trainer with a solid record.
Corinne’s first winner was Sheriff`s Star, ridden to victory by Jeff Lloyd, at Greyville on 13 august 1994.
She has a strong racing pedigree behind her, being the daughter to legendary trainer Eileen Bestel. She worked for her Mom as an assistant for seven years, working with some big horses including Speak No Evil, winner of the Mercury Sprint, Swift And Silent who won ten races including the Christmas Handicap, Irish Limerick, winner of the Flamboyant Stakes and Royal Tiara.
Corinne trained the very smart Azuaga, who won the Rupert Ellis Brown Memorial. Olympic Flag won both the Byerley Turk and the KwaZulu-Natal Stakes. St Lazare was also a top-class sort and won the Christmas Handicap.
