“As a family, we regularly had holidays on the Gold Coast at Broadbeach. We made several trips growing up and even when Dad won the Blacks a Fake a few years ago with Let It Ride we had a good holiday on the Gold Coast with the entire family”.
After arriving during the TAB Constellations back in July, Kate hit the ground running during one of the strongest carnivals the club has ever staged but excelled under the pressure and can see the upside Queensland is making.
“I thrive off working in a carnival atmosphere and love the excitement of great horses being on track and the participants around these times”
“Unfortunately, due to COVID, I arrived a little later than desired but what a fantastic carnival!
“Queensland has such a big opening to locals, interstate and overseas horses/participants and I really believe the 2021 Winter Carnival has set the stage for a big opportunity moving forward. It will be great to be part of the lead up to an exciting 2022 Winter Carnival.”
As a member of Gen Z, Kate is acutely aware of the impact of social media.
“The social media realm is an extremely competitive space, and it plays such a key role on building the perception of our owners and allowing trainers and the club to build their profiles”
“I strongly believe it is necessary to be part of this social media community in one way or another.
“I’m an avid photographer and this also plays an important role in the use of social media. I’m self-taught but constantly trying to improve all the time”.
Kate has settled in nicely and is keen to expand on her opportunity, so expect to see and hear more this harness racing tragic.
“I’m really enjoying life right now and see Queensland being my forever home now.” she said.
“Having the Inter Dominion returning to Queensland in 2023 is really exciting. I’m really looking forward to it and can’t wait to be involved in whatever way helps”
“I’m keen to continue to build on The Creek brand with our talented team, work with the family business, move into the breeding side of the industry, build on my photography skills and settle here with a family one day.””
And will we see your parents move to Queensland in time to come?
“Never say never! We are all so close so it would be an impressive result if so. It would also be a great spot for my other siblings Leah and Rhys to come visit.” she said.
