Corstens Takes The Road Less Travelled

Tuesday, 23rd June 2020

Melbourne trainer Troy Corstens, whose Malua Racing already has set-ups at Flemington and Geelong (for beach work), has added a country environment to the mix for the stable’s racehorses. According to racing.com, Corstens has invested in a 130 acre property called Bangtail near the town of Benalla. South-east of Wangaratta, the property is just over 2 hours from Melbourne. Corstens explained his vision behind acquiring the property with undulating hills and 40km of bush tracks: "We've got about three different tracks [at Bangtail] that they work up and down on, and it's an amazing place because the riders stay on the horses for about an hour-and-a-half, which is a luxury you don't get at Geelong or Flemington.” Corsterns noted, "It allows us to get a lot of slow work into them and muscle work, and it really allows the horses to switch off."
