At a young age Greg started off as an apprentice with Alan and Linda Jones in New Zealand. Linda Jones being the first female jockey to ride in N.Z.
Greg moved to Australia and rode track work for Brian Smith and Bart Cummings for many years. Wanting a break from the track Greg moved to the Hunter Valley and broke in yearlings for the likes of Harry Mitchell and other clients.
Greg is a horseman through and through and now works at Edinglassie on the farming side maintaining the pastures but is still able to get his horse fix when needed.
