Questions & Answers from Trainer Tara Laing
Hi Tara, Its Nice to speak to you again, I Hope you are well, thanks for taking this Interview, Tell readers in the UK something about yourself
1) I was born and bred in the Highlands of Scotland, immigrated to SA in 1985, and I am an ex-show jumper and dressage rider, representing Scotland from a very young age.
Do you think you are a perfectionist?
2) No I am not a perfectionist, although saying that, certain things must be done my way regarding the stable management of the yard, so it is my way or the highway
Explain your leadership style
3)I believe each and every person that is employed by #teamtara has their own leadership qualities, Gavin heads up the wok riding team, Pardon oversees the horses legs, backs and feeding schedule, whilst Andries, breaks in all the youngsters and schools them in the starting gates, they have all learnt from me initially, and have the qualities that make them great leaders in the Laing yard today.
Which one describes you better, a morning person or a night owl?
4) I am definitely an “an early bird catches the worms girl”
What motivates you in your professional life
5)thriving to succeed, and do the best that I can, there is nothing more rewarding than standing in the winner’s enclosure with one of your steeds, as that is job satisfaction which makes me even more hungry for success.
Good Answer, Are you interested in any other sports besides Horse racing If yes, which
6) Rugby, cricket and football
Share with us Horse racing Fans any of the most satisfying moments of your Horse racing life?
7)there is too many to mention, however a few do stand out, I have a knack for rejuvenating older horses that have lost their zing for racing, I am still winning races with 9yr olds, also winning the longest race in South Africa over the 3600m multiple times with the same horse, whom ended up a 13 time winner, I have also won the East Cape sprint on numerous occasions, and to end off a lot of my horses have won 12, 13, 14 and 15 races, retiring at a ripe age of 7 and 8 yrs old.
Wow That is a Fantastic Achievement especially on the flat, What would you do in your free time?
8) In my free time, you can see me shouting on the side of the rugby field as my son Ewan plays for the XV Rugby Team for Woodridge as well as XV cricket.
Which is your favourite TV show
9) Coronation Street (can you believe that) haha
Who is your favourite superhero
10) my son is my superhero, being in the racing industry, I have missed out a lot of his “growing up years”, but he has never complained, and he is always on course to support me when he has a break from the sport.
Great Answer, Who was the most influential person in your life? And state us the reason
12) there was numerous influential people in my life, in fact too many to name, as they ALL had a huge role guiding, leading, advising and pointing me in the right direction to get me where I am today.
How do you deal with pressure and stress at work?
13) it is very difficult, as I stress a lot, I’m so used to the pressure, but stress is, unfortunately, part of the package, I read a lot which takes my mind of stressful situations.
who is your favourite Racehorse Trainer now and of all time?
14) The late Jean Hemming, she was an absolute legend in the training ranks here in South Africa, If I could achieve just half of what Mrs Hemming achieved, I would be a very happy person.
Very Sad, My Fav Jockey of all Time, Funnily enough, is a South African Michael Roberts, when he became Champion British Jockey, the famous Bob of the head rider, with Alec Stewart at Newmarket, RIP. Alec, that’s when I was Curious who is this Master of the Saddle and where is he from? got into South African Racing a while back Now, Sorry about that History Lesson I couldn’t Help Myself, I digress, Tara, Who is your Favourite Jockey now and of all time?
15)Internationally Lester Piggot, Nationally Anton Marcus
Yes Two Absolute Legends, Anton will be back soon I here from Injury.
How Does Family Matter Being a High Profile Horse racing Trainer?
16) we are a small close-knit family, Gavin my fiancee and I have been together for 16 years, he is an ex Eastern Cape Champion Jockey, so he used to ride for me before a medical condition forced him to hang up his boots,
so now he is my main work rider, and takes care of the nominations, declarations and programming of horses. Ewan can be seen in the yard when he is on holiday from school, My Mother and stepfather, support me at every race meeting and have now just recently bought a horse for me to train for them, my Dad lives up in Johannesburg And he is also part of the team, as he is my bookkeeper and financial manager.
Yes Gavin was Certainly a Master in the Saddle, Have you a Pet and what is its Name?
17) I have 3 dogs, a purebred Jack Russell named Layla (after my favourite singer’s song Layla by Eric Clapton), I have an old rescue dog named Kaydee, and another rescue dog name Chaplin, plus a stable cat named Marmite
Awe, I love Animals Myself, Horses Dogs Cats, finally, thank you for taking part, Have you One Horse the Public can follow during the upcoming season 2019/20
18) it is pretty difficult to say at the moment as I still have a few Babies that have not even made their debut yet, Captain Anne Bonny had a cracker 2 yr old career, and was put away until the new season, so she will be back on course soon, I have her half-sister, by Bold Silvano plus a Futura filly, Captain Of All colt, Querrari colt, and a Master Of Mate filly, they will all make their debut in the next couple of months.

With the current exchange rate of the Rand/Pound, it certainly works out a lot cheaper to own a horse in SA than what it does to own a racehorse in the UK.
