"After many years as an owner in the racing industry Joe Pride and his team were a breath of fresh air. Their care and professionalism with regards to horses is second to none and Joe has a proven formula for success with one of the best strike rates in Australian racing. I’ve personally had lots of success in racing horses with Joe, including group 1 winners, and Joe has been a major part of the fun and excitement that I have received from being a horse owner. Which is what it’s all about."

“Ungar Family Racing have had a great journey with the Pride Stable, and after 28 years of racing horses with other trainers, we have enjoyed our most success over the past 4 years with Joe Pride. I have always felt informed and kept up to date about the progress of our horses by Joe, and he and his team are great to work with. We are now racing 10 horses with the Pride stable and looking forward to even more success.”

"I’ve had the great privilege to watch Joe Pride, master his craft over the years, witnessing first hand his progress from stable-hand to Assistant Trainer to John Size, to then taking out a Trainer’s License in his own right. From the first time I met Joe, it was clear to me that his passion was with horses, their physical and most importantly their physiological well being. I am very proud to be associated with Joe Pride and have raced many horses successfully with him from the start of his training career. I know that Joe takes a personal; “hands-on” approach with each horse entrusted to his care and gives them every opportunity to reach their full potential. As an Owner, I have the utmost respect for Joe’s honesty and integrity in his approach to training racehorses and in his management in dealing with all facets of the industry."

"Joe Pride is an exceptional young trainer. From very humble beginnings he has become a Group 1 trainer in a relatively short space of time and is consistently now producing metropolitan winners. He learned so much and gained great practical experience from his early days with John Size and others. He has a great work ethic as he leads from the front and with this example his staff are totally in tune with what Joe requires of them for all to be successful. Although my time with Joe has been relatively short I can see a long term association as I firmly believe that he will achieve the best possible outcomes commensurate with the horses different levels of ability. Joe 's particular training skills I believe are to obtain the maximum outcome from the horses he has to work with. Joe values his owners and regularly communicates with them. I am happy to recommend Joe Pride to owners who wish to have success on the track."
