A warm welcome to the website for LEES RACING.

A six-times premier Newcastle trainer, Kris is now firmly established in the top bracket of Australian trainers.

In the autumn of 2016, he hit the international spotlight by winning New South Wales’ richest race – the $4m Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick during The Championships – with classy mare Lucia Valentina.

With such outstanding prizemoney now on offer in NSW at all levels – metropolitan, provincial and country – Kris takes great care in placing his horses to give them the best possible advantage to secure returns for owners.

And he is never afraid to take horses to the interstate carnivals in Brisbane and Melbourne if he considers they are worthy of such an assignment.

Based at Broadmeadow in Newcastle – which boasts top-class training and racing facilities – Kris also has the back-up of Ellalong Farm, a superb agistment and pre-training centre, in the Lower Hunter Valley.

The fact that he maintains long-standing relationships with clients speaks volumes for not only his training skill, but his easy-going manner and capacity to so willingly interact with all of them.
