VINCENT Malady got his start with the legendary George Hanlon and now he is quietly making his mark as a trainer with a boutique stable conveniently located on the Geelong racecourse.

Hanlon taught Vincent much about training horses, but the most important attribute he took away from his time with the master trainer was his meticulousness.

Hanlon knew every horse in his stable “inside out” and Vincent has applied that “attention to detail” in his daily life as a trainer as he works towards upgrading the quality of his 16-horse team.

In recent times Vincent has honed his skills on tried and discarded horses with good results, and in 2010 the Malady-trained Twiginthedesert was crowned Geelong Racehorse Of The Year and Vincent was awarded the Meggs Elkington Order of Merit.

Being based on the Geelong racecourse is a big attraction with both a newly renovated turf track and an all-weather track on the doorstep as well as a swimming pool, while for variety horses can work on the sand at 13th Beach just 15 minutes away.

George Hanlon was one of a kind, but Vincent is committed to doing justice to the days he worked with one of Australia’s greatest trainers.
