Ross Olivieri

Oakford based trainer Ross Olivieri came on board with Pacing WA via the 2016 yearling sale. Ross has won the Leading Trainer Premiership of Western Australia several times, and has trained horses in NSW, the USA and New Zealand before deciding that WA would remain his home. This gives him outstanding overall knowledge of the industry, horses and training techniques. He is also a multiple Group 1 trainer with almost every Group 1 race to his credit as a trainer covering colts, fillies, mares & horses. The most notable are listed below. Ross has a  filly now called DELIGHTFUL SHADOW from the Gloucester Standardbred Yearling Sale.

DELIGHTFUL SHADOW qualified also. Unfortunately she has had for varying reasons an injury layoff until 3 yrs.

Ross also has a selection from the 2017 Sale a fantastic filly by Sportswriter out of Spring Carnival. Now named BROOK PARKS LAST

(A fitting name to the memory of breeder Laurie Kennedy (Brook Park Standardbreds) who passed away in 2017. Fighting cancer when this filly went through the sale, Laurie was so over the moon for her to be purchased by Ross Olivieri and PacingWA)
