Assistant Trainer Calls It A Day

Three decades on - top man retires

Longserving Bass Racing Assistant Trainer Trevor Taylor has called it a day after over 31 years service with the Milnerton-based family operation.

Trevor Taylor – congenial and low-profile horseman

Described on the Bass Racing website as the driving force behind the champion operation, Trevor’s knowledge, stable management skills and expertise over more than three decades were a major factor in the yard’s growth and success.

Trevor’s involvement in horses began in 1967 when he joined the SA Jockey Academy working under the late Allan Higgins. He later joined Allan as his assistant trainer for a decade.

Trevor joined Mike Bass in 1987.

He is widely acknowledged as a music fundi and respected by his peers as one of the most low-profile horseman in the industry – and always chose to avoid the limelight. It was even difficult finding a pic of him.

Enjoy the retirement, Trevor!

    He was also an expert on cockney slang, French pronunciation and Tottenham Hotspur, he could easily do the limbo under the fence leading to the cinders despite his advanced years !!! Great guy sorely missed.

    Good luck Trevor enjoy your retirement!
