We have been meeting with Des O’Keeffe & Matt Hyland from the Australian Jockeys Association and developing strong business relationships with them and the association to create career paths for Jockeys. Currently, we have employed 2 Jockeys in the past few months who have made the transition into the Super Gardens family within the racecourses. Their knowledge and skills with horse etiquette and the track has proven to be invaluable. A win win for both parties!
Super Gardens are able to offer stable employment and many opportunities for career advancement to retired jockeys into many different areas within the growing customer portfolio across both grounds maintenance and landscape construction.
We look forward to continuing these relationships and partnering with them.
