Thorotek is the thoroughbred racing stable of Natalie and Luke Jarvis at Moruya on the NSW South Coast.
Transparent owner communication
Our aim is for our owners to get to know their horses like we do, their personalities, funny foibles and their day to day activities. To do this, we regularly publish updates, photos and videos on our website and across social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram).
Owners know what training their horse is doing each day through the training diaries and can easily check where they are aiming to race. We also utilise GPS tracking (ClockIt EQ) on the horses when they gallop, giving owners accurate trackwork times.
Owners have 24/7 access to the Thorotek stables through our Livecam. Infrared webcams show each horse in their yard and the washbay, sand roll and courtyard areas of the stables are all visible.
Every horse lives in a yard with shelter, room to move around and access to fresh air and sunshine. The horses can see and touch their neighbours and enjoy the benefit of the extra space and social interaction.
The training facilities at Moruya are excellent with the sand based tracks barely affected by very wet or very dry weather. There is a sand track for slow work and a B grass for fast work mornings. Access to the course proper for fast work is also frequently available and brand new practice barriers have been installed.
Variation is easily incorporated into the training program with access to a bush trail, the river and the beach within easy riding distance. Including activities such as these, other than trackwork, is excellent for conditioning, recovery and for keeping the horses happy and engaged. The relaxed atmosphere and peaceful surroundings also allow for longer racing preparations.
We know owners prefer to be cheering their horse on at the track than just receiving a monthly training bill for a horse that never races so we operate a stable largely comprised of tried horses. With a small team in training, we can focus on each horse individually, which makes it easier to keep our horses sound and racing.
