Graham (Richie) has always had a love of horses, and even as a young boy, he knew what he was destined to do. Over the last 20 years he has trained over 600 winners in New Zealand and Australia with many of them being Group 1 to listed placings.

His many training successes includes winners such as: Kailey (G.1 Railway Hcp); Tobruk (G.1 Bayer Classic and Doomben Classic); Platonic (32 starts, 10-4-4, $506,703.00 in prizemoney in Group and listed races) Masai (G.1 & G.2 placed); Fiorenza (won a G.2 and was placed in G.3 and Listed races; Rodrigo Rose (won a G.2, placed in G.1 and Listed races; Sista (won G.2 and Listed races), Italian Princess, and most recently Strada Cavallo (multiple G.1 placed) and Volpe Veloce (Listed win at 2nd start)


Our 30 horse barn and our 12 horse barn, located side by side at the Matamata Racecourse, are light and airy and is a perfect environment for both horse and human. Each horse is happy and relaxed in their training habitat. There is a horse walker adjacent to the barn and hosing bays and tie-up stalls inside for staff to tend to each horses individual needs.

The Matamata Racing Club has long been recognised as one of New Zealand's most significant racing and training centres and being based right on the track complex our horses have daily access to grass, plough, sand and an all-weather tracks, as well as a swimming pool, schooling fences, weighing scales and other modern facilities including customised jumpout gates.

Our owners enjoy weekly emails, calls, photos and track videos of their horses, a regularly updated Richardson Racing Facebook page, an up to date stable website, raceday outings.
