Welcome to Mitchell Thoroughbreds

Todd took out his permit to train galloper’s in the 2005/2006 season to add to the harness racing side of his operation. During that season, his first gallopers to the races, Storm Dash, had 6 starts for two places. Since then, Todd has pre trained a number of thoroughbreds and experienced his first winner at Avondale with Electronic Socks.

Most of the training of these thoroughbreds ties in nicely with the standardbreds, with the gallopers being taught to lead behind the sulky and, in the warmer months, spending time in the 8ft deep bungee swimming pool. When their training advances, they are taken to the local Cambridge Jockey Club up to 3 times a week for pace work and/or gallops.
