About Ron Quinton
Ron Quinton was a leading figure among Australian jockeys in the 1970s and 1980s. He now ranks among Sydney's leading trainers. A successful Group One trainer with an eye for talent, Ron is focused on bringing out the best of each horse for race day, achieving maximum results with a hands-on approach to training. His stables are located within the Royal Randwick Racecourse complex where each horse has access to some of the best training and conditioning equipment within the industry and a long standing relationships with Centennial Park Veterinary Services: farrier Reg Urving and dentist Kenny Stone.
SAM CLIPPERTON Sam has been with the stables since the age of fifteen and has matured into one of the rising stars in the industry. His natural talent and balance are key to his talent and after many years of hard work he has proven himself to be a jockey to follow.
ELIZA HUGHES Eliza is calm, intelligent, caring and has a true love for horses. The horses couldn’t be in better hands.
TAYLOR MARSHALL Taylor is one of Ron’s latest apprentices He is already showing great potential and natural ability.
ZENA WALSH Zena is a loyal and compassionate member of the Ron Quinton Racing Stables team. Her experience is not limited to her time at our stables, having perviously worked in other leading stables. She is devoted to the care and attention of all the horses with a big smile.
This edge, this instinct has been translated into training jockeys and race horses with proven results.
It’s a bit like Niki Lauda’s winning combination of diver and technician but without the attitude.

OWNING A HORSEThere has never been a better time to get involved in the Sport of Kings. Prize money levels, particularly in NSW, are at an all-time high in the city, provincial and country races. The advent of BOBS (Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme) has been a great success and gives owners at all levels an extra incentive to race a horse in this State (NSW). Yearling prices have come down – in a lot of cases – so owning a horse, or taking up a share, is now more affordable than it has been in past years. Above all, the best reason to own a horse, whether it be the whole horse or a small share, is fun and excitement. There is nothing like being at the races and watching your horse compete, let alone win. They are memories that will stay with you for ever. Even just getting along to the stable for a visit and a pat is what it’s all about. It is possible to purchase a horse outright, enjoying sole ownership or shared between a family. You may wish to form a partnership with a group of people dividing the ownership into various percentages. This is a common method, preferred by people who love getting together on race day to share the fun and prize money, making a great day out.
I’m more than happy to chat to you about these options including what horse ownership is all about.
All the best, Ron
HANDSOME chestnut Boss Lane took his earnings beyond the $200,000 mark when posting his second consecutive Randwick Bm80 1200m win last weekend. The son of Dubawi's most recent victory was almost a carbon copy of his comfortable 1.3-lens win on George Main Stakes day at HQ on September 20. Trainer Ron Quinton is attributing Boss Lane's surge in form in part to the drier surfaces in Sydney this spring. "No doubt it about,'' Quinton said,''his
Quinton could easily ice the cake on a memorable Spring Champion Stakes day with Boss Lane lining up in the ATC Xirrus Sprinter (1200m) over the same track and distance that sparked his impressive last start win. "He's trained on beautifully, I am really happy with the way he's gone on, he's gone forward and has probably improved a little bit again. Naturally he's up in the weights but we're off setting that with the
Quinton is tipping a bold showing from classy galloper Monton who was beaten 2.5-lens by Lucia Valentina and 2.7-lens by Terravista in consecutive runs prior to his even last start fifth behind comeback kid Manwanui in the Group 3 Bill Ritchie. ''A little bit disappointing on face value,'' Quinton admits, ''he pulled up just a little bit too excited after the race so I have him a nice little freshen-up and a nice quiet
STAKESWINNING mare Intimate Moment can book a trip to Melbourne for an Emirates Stakes day cameo should she perform to expectation in tomorrow's Group 3 ATC Angst Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick. Trainer Ron Quinton is toying with the idea of sending her down to contest the Group 2 VRC Matriarch Stakes (2000m) scheduled for November 8 on the final day of the Melbourne Cup carnival. Intimate Moment returns to the 'Randwick mile' this weekend
