Reece Trumper

Racing Manager

Reece, who has an extensive thoroughbred racing and breeding knowledge has quickly risen through the ranks in time working for Te Akau Racing.

You don’t have to look far in the Te Akau team to find Reece Trumper and his passion for racing. Reece grew up in Stratford and worked for both trainers Chris Bothwell and Gavin Sharrock who gave him a lot of confidence working with horses before moving to join Te Akau Racing.  

Before becoming our Racing Manager in August 2022 Reece worked as our Assistant Stable Foreman at the Te Akau Colt barn. He is an key member of our management team – personable and thoroughly professional, he is passionate about every aspect of our business, as well as the industry and loves his role liaising with our family of owners.

His introduction into racing was through his grandparents, John & Sue Trumper, who have Cheveley Stud (Te Aroha). They stood stallions and got Group One winners: Gee I Jane, Pakaraka Star and Bulginbaah.

Reece received the The Team Member of the Quarter in the 2021/22 season.
