Brock Bigham & Danielle Loos
Brock is an important part of Malady Racing, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge from his days riding for trainers such as Lee Hope and Michael Moroney.
Danielle is also a big asset to the stable with her racing background, having ridden for many years at Caulfield for Mick Price.
Both Brock and Danielle have a great skill in which they have horses as relaxed as possible in their work. This goes a long way in keeping horses happy and content with their training.
BORN in South Caulfield, not far from the Caulfield racecourse, Vincent Malady has always had a passion for horse racing.
He loved following the horses and as a young teenager was sneaking a bet here and there on his favourite horses.
One trainer he always admired was George Hanlon and it was a dream come true when he got to work for him at Leopold.
Vincent absorbed as much as he could from his days working for Hanlon and has modelled himself as much as possible on the Australian Racing Hall of Fame trainer.
He is meticulous about his training operation and has forged his career mainly with tried horses and horses bred by his loyal band of owners.
Vincent has trained a number of winners including the speedy Appalachian Annie, ultra-consistent Tigidig Tigidig and 2010 Geelong Racehorse Of The Year, Twiginthedesert.
In 2010, Vincent was also acknowledged for his training when awarded the Meggs Elkington Order of Merit.
