Birchley braces for spite


Trainer Liam Birchley.

Trainer to rebuild his career on farm after a draining legal battle

AFTER more than a year on the sidelines, former leading trainer Liam Birchley is preparing to return to the fold, well aware he will face a good deal of scepticism, but determined to rebuild his career.

Birchley, a multiple runnerup in the Brisbane metropolitan premiership, will train from a property near Kilcoy and has made application to the Sunshine Coast Turf Club to use their training tracks to gallop his horses.

He has not saddled a runner in 14 months after announcing he was stepping away from training. That followed a three-year legal battle as part of the Aquanita top-up scandal, in which he had a one-year ban quashed in September last year.

He has recently written to clients informing them of his decision to return to training. “I feel reinvigorated and ready to recommence my training career and have the confidence in myself to take it to another level,” he wrote.

“I have decided to take up an on-farm boutique stable. Leveraging everything I have learnt from training and on farms in my career, I believe training on the farm is the best thing for the horse.

“A boutique stable will allow me to have a lot more one-on-one time with the horses.”

Birchley’s return will evoke some animosity, which he is well aware of.

“I’ve got no control over that. I don’t think about it,” he told The Courier-Mail. “The people who know me, know what I’m about.

“That’s all I care about. People will always think what they want to think.


I fancy there would be some previous on Liam's decision to retire from training going to  Archer Park which looks a very well set up complex but I haven't been able to find it ...Good Luck in resuming training.
