  • "A winning treble at Moonee Valley in December has reinforced the rise of teenage apprentice Stephanie Thornton."


    She's the up-and-comer that has taken the racing industry by storm during the summer, quickly rising through the ranks to become one of Victoria's most in-demand apprentices.

    Exploding onto the scene since winning her first Melbourne metropolitan race in July 2017, Thornton has consistently been in the winners' circle with an impressive strike-rate, much to the pleasure of punters. The 18-year-old is already a fan favourite, often showing maturity beyond her years both on and off the track, helped in part by the fact that she's part of a big racing family with her father Glenn a trainer and her brothers Damien and Boris both jockeys.

    And with her metro-win tally now in double figures, including a Saturday double at Caulfield, she's certainly one to watch, with Racing Victoria naming her as a Festival of Racing ambassador.
