As the season has closed a reflection on what was a great season from Peter Gelagotis's Racing Stable further entrenched him as the leading trainer in Gippsland dominating the racing season once again with his best season ever as a licensed Trainer. Notching up 20 winners for the year surpassed any previous tally and further advertises the professionalism of the stable to be able to sustain quality results anywhere in Australia from Melbourne , Adelaide , Sydney and various Country circuits around Victoria and the stable have never been scared to travel for owners to give the horses a great chance of success and earning Prize Money.
"We have a great business model and plan which includes a great property and most off all great staff who have been loyal and drive the stables success. Manny continues to have the eye to purchase nice horses which gives me the opportunity to get the best out of them and whilst we strive and work hard for success through sad times of the death of our father last year we managed to win races through the Spring Carnival which gave us the biggest thrill ever and these results put Moe and Gippsland in the mainstream media and we are very proud of that and was the standout highlight of the season. Hvasstan winning Caulfield Cup Day and Mourinho Cox Plate Day created a media hype that gravitated to the stable and really created a national profile which has been an interesting experience and all the years of hard work is starting to pay off with many opportunities however the stable will always be capped in numbers to maintain the hands on approach which I believe creates the success." Said Peter Gelagotis
"I would like to personally thank my family and staff for their hard work and loyalty and naturally the owners who provide the influence to make things happen and support us to race and train decent horses and all the jockeys and other outside supporters like our Vets , Farriers , Spelling Farms and Pre Trainers who critically assist in what makes our stable stand out from the rest. We look forward to another great year and we believe we have the team to continue the success and have some lovely youngsters who we think have the potential to have good racing futures and naturally our marquee horses hopefully will play another major role during the carnivals this season to give us some exciting opportunities to again win some feature races and put our owners in the winner's circle on the big stage."
The Stable have 3 horses nominated for the Gippsland Horse of the Year in Hvasstan , Module & Mourinho and the Nominations for the Best performed Horse on Gippsland Race Tracks are Esprit Rossa , Mossale & Nusadarah so we look forward to sharing a great night at the Sale Turf Club for the 2012/13 race season celebration on the 24th August 2013 .
