Goodwin Racing is operated by Barry Goodwin, who has a lifetime of equine experience. Having worked with some of the best stables and horse flesh, Barry has built a reputation as being excellent horsemen with unrivaled attention to detail.
It was no surprise Barry would take out his trainers licence at the tender age of 21 given the vast experience in his adolescence. Having begun working with thoroughbreds at age 13 at Caulfield in the famous Armanasco stable, Barry would spend the next five years at the Yarra Glen horse precinct under Arch McClements, John Nichols and Greg Manse before applying for his own trainers license.
Having saddled up a winner at his first runner, over 150 winners have followed, but it would be in his role as Foreman for Freedman Racing that Barry would prosper. He would later manage the Brackley Park property where he rode and handled champion horses such as Encosta de Lago, Doriemus, Mahogany and Schillaci.
Moving to Seymour in 2004, it is here that Barry has etched his name into the Victorian training ranks with an excellent strike-rate. Having recently moved to the nearby Mangalore Park training complex, this has enabled Barry to use a variety of training methods from a natural environment to deliver consistent results into the winners circle.
“The facilities at Mangalore Park enable us to race our horses for longer and more consistently and in turn deliver a higher return for our owners”
