  • Welcome to ‘Rae Racing Stables’'Class A' Trainers Licence holders since 1989

    Based at the Whangarei Racing Club's Ruakaka training facility, the Lisa & Kenny Rae make the best of the dry winter conditions racing through the winter in the North and then head south to race through the spring and summer months, with an odd trip back and forth to some of the major carnivals that fall in between.

    Currently working 12 horses in the north at Ruakaka and 12 horses in the south, Kenny Rae has the ‘have truck will travel’ philosophy and he found this has paid off. Consequently, the stable has grown somewhat over the past 2 years.

    Syndicate Opportunity

    May 2016: Currently the stable have a syndicate opportunity – a Towkay gelding.

    This 3 year old is unraced but has trialled for a 3rd and 4th, and is a nice big type.

    If your interested in buying a share, or have an questions, please contact Kenny immediately, as it is anticipated heis going to be snapped up very quickly.

    Recent Successes

    May 2016: The stable has been on fire recently  – now with a satellite stable in the South and two apprentice jockeys on board (Darren Chin and Kim Kwo)

    In the south recently Kaharau has won 5 in a row and the big boy Absolut Excelencia is just short of winning $200k. In fact, it was thought he would retire after winning 10 races or hitting the $200k purse but having just been beaten by a bare nose, it looks like he's going to do both  - win 10 and rollover the $200k markat the same time!

    ‘Arty’ was another astute purchase from the R2R sales , he was quickly syndicated and is part owned by Kenny and Lisa Rae.

    The highlights in the current and recent seasons include:

    Red Ripper

    ‘Shoe, Truck, Train, Ride!’

    Kenny and Lisa own their own transport, so travelling to the far south from their Ruakaka home is never a problem. As a farrier too, Kenny usually plates all his own horses and if that’s not enough he also rides track work everyday. ‘Shoe, Truck, Train, Ride’ – there’s not many that can boast all this with success!
