"Tony McEvoy is a disciple of the late Colin Hayes and has now forged a very successful training career in his own right. "
Originally from Streaky Bay, McEvoy's main base is still in South Australia, with his headquarters on a picturesque property at Angaston.
He also has a growing stable at Flemington in Melbourne and is building a team that is fast becoming the envy of many.
One of McEvoy's strengths is his ability to get results with two-year-old horses, as highlighted by the victory of Sunlight at the rich Magic Millions race day at the Gold Coast in January.
McEvoy won the Australian Guineas during the Festival of Racing last year with Hey Doc, a horse who will once again feature in some of Melbourne's premier sprint races.
However, his boom colt Royal Symphony won't be contesting the Group 1 Australian Guineas having been withdrawn from Autumn.
