Tara?s foreman material
THE Poidevin-Lane name is a well-known one in racing circles, and the name may just carry a little more weight in future with the next generation coming through.
Tara Poidevin-Lane, 21, has moved to the Coffs Harbour area, setting up a satellite stable for her mother, trainer Diane.
Moving up from Kembla Grange with her boyfriend, jockey Brett Poulus, Poidevin-Lane, with her recently acquired foreman's ticket in hand, is working five horses at the moment for her mother.
"At the moment I'm just working with the horses that are run- ning nice races down south for Mum, but just can't quite get a win," she said.
When asked which horse was the pick of her current bunch, Poidevin-Lane pointed to Little Maria.
Poidevin-Lane has settled in well at the Coffs track after a couple of early hiccups.
"There are great facilities here, and after spending my whole life at Kembla, I just love it all."
Is there a trainer's ticket in Tara'a future?
"Maybe one day."
Then she adds with a giggle, 'but Mum can put up with all that stress for now'.
