Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou

Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou





Onsite boxes, 2 walkers and access to pool.



Commencing his career as a jockey, Gerald Ryan has been involved in the thoroughbred racing industry for 5 decades. He is known for his vast knowledge and true horsemanship and many of his charges have continued to have successful stud careers. Upon retiring from race riding, he became foreman for John Hawkes at Epsom before becoming a trainer in his right, and over the years has established stables at Flemington, Gold Coast, Murwillumbah, and Rosehill Gardens. His only Group 1 victory as a jockey, Gerald is also the only person to win the G1 All Aged Stakes as both a jockey (Bit of a Skite 1980) and trainer (Hurricane Sky 1995 & Trapeze Artist 2018). Sterling Alexiou started his career on the Gold Coast with trainer Gillian Heinrich before making the move to Sydney to work for Gerald, rising quickly to the role of foreman, and becoming co-trainer in mid-2020.
