Casey Favell

This week we caught up with foaling unit team member Casey Favell.

Q How old were you when your first interest in horses was sparked?
I was 20 when I first got involved with horses.

Q Which division are you working in at present?
I am currently working in the foaling unit and have been fortunate to work in other areas of the farm including Courtza Park with the pre-trainers/racehorses and also with the yearlings.

Q What is your favourite time of year on the farm?
A This year I am very excited for the foaling season and am really looking forward to the yearling prep!

Q What is your favourite part of what you do?
It changes every season – I really enjoy the foaling during the breeding season but have also loved working at Courtza Park and looking after the racehorses.

Q If you could give one piece of advice to someone looking to get involved in the thoroughbred breeding industry what would it be?
A Be ready to work hard!

Q Who is your favourite horse on the farm?
A Love Affair as she is so beautiful and strong. I really hope she has a good racing season as she has so much talent.

Q What are you watching on Netflix at the moment?
I have just finished Orphan Black and just started Downton Abbey.

Q What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Spend time with my husband and kids.
