One of the country’s leading horse racing syndications has this week announced a new partnership deal with ace Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse who will begin to select and prepare horses during 2015 for Dynamic Syndications.
A formal statement from Dynamic Syndications’ Managing Director Dean Watt on their website this week confirmed the powerhouse operation are now entered in a tactical association with Australia’s First Lady of Racing – Waterhouse.
“For many years I felt Gai has been the missing jewel in our crown of Australia’s Leading Trainers,” he said when paying the Champion Trainer her due credit.
Opening up a host of exciting new endeavours for both the high-profile Australian syndication and the globally recognised brand that is Gai Waterhouse Racing, the deal has been on the table for some time.
Watt was thrilled with the agreement that he believes will help Dynamic Syndications further cement their no-nonsense motto of “Race the Best – With the Best”.
“We believe the benefits are significant for both parties,” Watt said.
“I am delighted to form such a commercially strong and highly visible coalition with Hall of Fame Champion Trainer Gai.
“This allows existing and new clients to experience racing at an even higher level which they all deserve.
“It certainly identifies with our business motto of RACE THE BEST – WITH THE BEST.”
The first order of entry of note for the Dynamic team and Waterhouse, daughter of the late great trainer Tommy Smith, will be commencing inspections for the fast approaching summer Magic Millions Yearling Sale for youngsters to be trained at the historic Tulloch Lodge stables.
Watt is eager to purchase a number of notable yearlings to supply to Waterhouse and the other trainers on the syndication’s books including Peter Moody, Gerald Ryan, Mick Price, David Payne and Chris Waller – continuing a successful trend from 2014.
Dynamic Syndications over the past calendar year held a record of share sales including an impressive 85% winning strike rate for their runners, and 97% of their runners securing prize money.
Watt and his team have syndicated the winners of three of Australia’s major two-year-old races over the years with victories for their clients in the 2003 Golden Slipper with Polar Success, the 2009 Blue Diamond with Reward For Effort and the 2005 Magic Millions 2YO Classic with Bradbury’s Luck.
Their success on track also includes a Cox Plate winner from 2004 with the mighty Savabeel, one of their 10 individual Group 1 winners.
Overseas their success also extends to seven major international cup winners: Flying Dancer (HK), Big Arnold (HK), Crossroads Star (HK), Scarlet Heights (Mac), Chimbu Dancer (Mac), West Char (Mac), White Crest (Mac).
Waterhouse’s statistics meanwhile are even more impressive as she boasts 126 Group 1 winners, over 461 black-type victories, four New South Wales Training Premierships, seven Sydney Trainer’s Premiership and one premiership for being Australia’s leading Group 1 winning trainer.
Her most successful winning horse over the years with 21 victories was top mare More Joyous who amassed over $4.5 million in prize money, while her highest stakes earner of all time is her maiden Melbourne Cup champion Fiorente with $6,068,500.
