As the granddaughter of New Zealand racehorse trainer, Ashley Fogden, working with horses was always Kacy Fogden’s passion.

“I always loved the idea of being a trainer but I never thought it was possible when I was younger,” she said.

In her breakout training year, Kacy has been recognised as one of Queensland’s most upcoming trainers, earning the Nationwide Super Rising Star award at the coveted 2021 TAB Wayne Wilson Medal and Trainers Awards. 

Kacy moved to Australia from New Zealand in 2007 and moved to Canungra nine years ago.

“I love Canungra, I think I’d struggle living somewhere else.”

She worked with Aquis from its establishment in 2015, managing the daily care and career preparation of over 150 young racehorses.

She obtained her training licence in 2019 and trained privately for Aquis Farm, a selection of Hong Kong and Queensland based clients from her Canungra and Gold Coast Training Centres. 

Kacy sent out her first winner with just her third runner when Singular Sensation saluted at the Gold Coast in April 2019. 

In her first season as a trainer, she had an impressive 19% win ratio!

The desire for Kacy’s services outside of Aquis Farm, led to the launch of Kacy Fogden Racing on 1 December 2020. 

In the last 12 months, Kacy has had an extremely impressive strike-rate and has had success in Queensland and New South Wales. 

She says three year old colt, Maotai is the most memorable horse she has trained so far.  This impressive horse has shown great potential over 1000 to 1400 metres.

Kacey is committed to the development of horses in her care and her staff.

After a busy start to her training career, her plans for the future are to train as many winners as possible; and create an enjoyable workplace for my staff so they continue to enjoy coming to work.”
