Head TrainerSimon Zahra

Horse racing provides a range of challenges, but my team and I will be there all the way. From the early mornings at the stable to spending entire days at the races, our engagement is both constant and comprehensive.

The art of training race horses requires years of experience, knowledge, instinct and an adaptation to long hours. Success will always follow, when hard work and dedication are the key ingredients.

Simon Zahra’s passion, commitment, high standards, enthusiasm, energy and attention to detail in all aspects of horse racing, is second to none. Simon’s journey started in the 90’s as a senior stable foreman for the highly rated Hawkes Team in Melbourne. During this period, Simon gained valuable experience and knowledge working with some of the most successful thoroughbreds, in Australia.

As Simon’s passion and ambitions grew, this then evolved into a very successful 14 year training partnership with Mathew Ellerton, in the form Ellerton Zahra Racing (EZR). During this period there were several Group One wins as well as consistent growth but just as importantly, the team created a fantastic ownership experience for many of it’s clients. This long successful partnership also enhanced and consolidated Simon’s love and drive for horse racing success now culminating, in the creation of Simon Zahra Racing (SZR).

This new racing era will bring to fore and continue to provide a wealth of experience in horse training, intimate and articulate knowledge of yearling selection and of course a top quality service. This will include affordable and quality yearling purchases, stable events with the racing team and horses, together with consistent updates and ownership opportunities, that have resulted in many positive outcomes. Additionally and with the establishment of (SZR), Simon intends to strive and evolve with proven and new ideas coupled with a range of technologies, to further enhance the racing experience for owners.

With over 25 Year’s of high level experience and with the drive, passion and commitment to maintain success and indeed standards, Simon will continue to challenge himself and his team to provide the ultimate racing journey. Simon looks forward to working with existing owners and also encouraging new participants to this great sport, as this passionate and dedicated trainer looks forward to many more years of racing success.
