Ambassador: Shane Crawford Manager: Chris Symons

What Is in a name?


The pride of the Big V was on full display when champion Weekend Hussler sprinted his way to victory in 9 of his 11 starts as a 3yo and a remarkable seven Group 1 races the 2008/09 season.

Shane loves racing


AFL Premiership winner and Brownlow medallist Shane Crawford has always had a deep passion for the racing industry.

In fact, the 300 game Hawthorn star actually worked in the Freedman stable during their “golden period” when the stable boasted the likes of three time Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva.

Shane payed a huge part of the success of the AFL Footy Show for over a decade so hold on for a fun ride. Arguably one of the greatest midfielders of all time, “Crawf’s” hard at the ball attitude will ensure the Husslers from Victoria are beyond competitive.

Show your pride, let it ride and join Shane and the Vic Husslers as we out run, out muscle and out hustle (within the rules of course) our Racing League competitors.


Your Team’s Manager


The role of the team managers is to coordinate team owners key decision making processes. In doing so on behalf of team owners, managing draft selections, trade windows, selling decisions and trainer programming. Your team manager will liaise with TRL’s Head of Racing who as a form and data specialist will help your team manager in conjunction with their team owners maximise big race day outcomes.

TRL have employed managers on a requirement of possessing deep industry knowledge, experience and connections to trainers within their state as well as being individuals who have that burning competitiveness and desire to win the competition.

Chris Symons

The word “versatile” doesn’t really do justice to the multi-talented jockey Chris Symons.

The accomplished horseman has many strings to his bow. He has ridden in over 12,000 races and guided home more that 1200 winners on the track, but he’s just as famous for his work away from the course.

Chris is passionate about all animals, and has his own wildlife sanctuary on the Mornington Peninsula, aptly named “Funky Farm” where everyone is welcomed to witness the native and exotic animals.

Symons is also an integral part of the Seven Network’s coverage of horse racing and his horse back post-race interviews with winning jockeys are certainly different in a positive for the industry.

Add to that he was also responsible for those magnificent horse racing scenes in the Michelle Payne inspired movie Ride Like A Girl.

Chris’s deep knowledge of the thoroughbred and the horse are a major bonus for the Vic Husslers.
