Callaghan Park has another new trainer now calling Rocky home.

Raymond Chan arrived from Brisbane this week to set up stables at the Rocky racetrack. Chan, 52, is a first-time licensed thoroughbred trainer but has plenty of horse and racing experience behind him.

In past years Chan has worked as an assistant to club trainers at the Singapore Turf Club and also spent time with Singapore’s iconic Bukit Timah Saddle Club and in Hong Kong as an equestrian rider. In Australia, Chan has learned many racing skills under his mentor, former Kembla Grange trainer, the late Michael “Mick” Tubman, before furthering his experience working at Tony Gollan’s stable in Brisbane and later for stables at the Deagon training track.

Chan has four horses in training at Callaghan Park and hopes that the number will grow in the coming months.

“I have another couple of horses ready to come into training from the spelling paddock,” he said.
