Our Guest Speakers

We have a stellar line-up of speakers who’ll be sharing what it takes to live the dream.

Emma Booth

Emma Booth

Just seven months after a near-fatal car accident in 2013, Emma set her sights on becoming a Para-equestrian in Rio. Since then, she has successfully competed at Rio and Tokyo Paralympics.

Annabel Neasham

Annabel Neasham

UK-born, Annabel began her Australian training career with Gai Waterhouse and Ciaron Maher. In 2020 she set-up her own stables, producing stars like Cox Plate favourite, Zaaki, and Mo’unga.

With 2044 career wins, including 34 Group 1s and a highly coveted Lexus Melbourne Cup win in 2012 on Green Moon, Prebble recently returned to the saddle atop Cup favourite, Incentivise.

Ciaron Maher

Ciaron Maher

The son of Dairy farmers, Ciaron's rise to the top of Victorian racing has not been a traditional one, but little he does is. While he's best known for his curly locks and relaxed demeanour, behind that wry smile is a competitive streak that has driven the stable's growth & success.

Chris Waller

Chris Waller

Best known as the trainer of the outstanding mare, Winx, Chris is also known for his calm and assured style under pressure, as well as his courtesy and candour.
