We’re delighted to announce that Kiersten Duke has joined Team Pride and will be looking after the communications and logistics while our Racing Manager Hayley runs away to get hitched.
Originally from the UK, Kiersten (pronounced K-EAR-STEN) has experience working in stud, breaking and rehab as well as racing after she spent two years working on Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum’s property in Norfolk, just outside of Newmarket. Shortly after that, she joined John Berry’s stable in Newmarket and began to ride work before flying out to Sydney a year later to join her partner, apprentice Jean Van Overmeire, out here.

Kiersten enjoys writing articles and filming behind the scenes footage for Thoroughbred Events Australia in her spare time. She says one of her highlights working in the Thoroughbred industry would be having the opportunity to experience the 2018 Dubai World Cup Carnival.
