Our staff and specialised hired services personnel are an integral part of Jason Warren Racing Stables.
We all share a common passion for horses and for success in racing.
Our staff necessarily demonstrate a high level of commitment and
passion to the successful day to day running of our training operations
and the maintenance of the Denistoun Park complex.
Jason Warren grew up in the Bega valley area and has worked with
horses most of his life. After starting off at shows and events, and
riding track work an Ballina, Jason moved to Victoria and worked for
Eliza Park (riding work and breaking in horses). After a couple of years
with Eliza Park Jason took out a trainers’ license in his own right,
and started training, pre-training and breaking in horses as his own man
(on a property on Stumpy Gulley Rd, just minutes from Denistoun Park).
Jason then decided that he wanted to further his knowledge of training,
and went to champion trainer Lee Freedman becoming his foreman during
the time that Makybe Diva reigned supreme. His time with Freedman racing
also included Benicio winning the VRC Derby and Serenade Rose winning
the VRC Oaks. At that time Denistoun Park served as the Freedman's
In 2006, with increased knowledge and experience, Jason purchased
Denistoun Park and now has up to 52 horses in work (education,
pre-training and full training).
At only 38yo Jason is young, driven, passion and totally committed to racing success.
Further details of Jason's background and of how he cam to be at
Denistoun Park can be found in the November 2011 Inside Racing article
