Allan Kehoe’s father dabbled with horses but his son has made a great fist of his time in racing.
Allan was one of four brothers to ride either professionally or as an amateur along with Jeff, John & David Kehoe while he has made his mark as a trainer.
Allan won premierships as an amateur rider but has excelled preparing horses, winning races at Dubbo as a teenager.
Kehoe subsequently sought further knowledge, betting himself as terrific grounding as a trainer working as a foreman for Group 1-winning horsemen Darren Smith and Tracey Bartley while gaining tremendous experience from his time with the Gerald Ryan and Allan Denham stables.
Kehoe has set up a base at Wyong on the Central Coast of New South Wales where he is perfectly situated to chase the amazing prizemoney on offer all over the state while trips to Queensland are within range.
Allan prepares his horses on course at Wyong and at a nearby property where the equine athletes undergo a wide array of training designed to keep them sharp and happy at all times.
The beach is a great training tool for Kehoe as well as the nearby Wyong River while the stable has grass and sand tracks at its disposal on course.
Allan Kehoe’s skills as a horseman have been on show in Melbourne in the spring of 2016 when Divine Prophet, a graduate of the stable’s breaking-in and pre-training service won the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas.
Experience gained at such a young age has primed Allan Kehoe for a big career in the NSW training ranks.
