Being successful is never a result of just one individual, our stable works together as a team. Each of our staff members at Jarrod McLean Racing love working with thoroughbreds, having the dedication and experience to ensure the well being of the horses and efficient running of our stable.

Strapper & Stablehand
Erin is Jarrod's twin sister and has strong background with horses.
Erin's experience and knowledge gained from working at a local Veterinary clinic is invaluable.
Erin also assists with the day to day chores involved in running the stables and when possible helps out on race days with strapping the horses.
Track Rider and Stablehand
Lydia Rigg-Floyd, Track Rider and Stablehand
Lydia is a very capable Trackrider and Stablehand and assists with the day to day routine of the horses and rides at the track and beach.
Lydia is a young horse enthusiast who has a keen willingness to learn and develop her skills. She is a valuable member of staff and can often be seen strapping at the races also.
William was a successful apprentice jockey and unfortunatley sustained a career ending race fall in 2008. He is a great asset to the team assisting Jarrod with the programming of a horses preparation.
