"David cares for and knows his horses backwards, the characteristics and idiosyncrasies of every horse under his care. He is as good as any horse whisper that you can get."

Kevin Maloney

Chairman of Segenhoe Stud
(Breakfast In Bed, Tribal Art, Tulla Touch)

"David is an outstanding trainer. He always puts the horse first and never looks for shortcuts and he takes great pride in his horses performance and appearance."

"I have been lucky enough to be a part of the wonderful Australian racing industry for almost 50 years - first riding track and later as a breeder and owner. I've come across dozens of trainers and veterinary surgeons; some good, some bad and some brilliant. The team of David Vandyke and Dr Michael Robinson falls into the latter category."

Jocelyn May

(Less Is More)

"David is a very honest trainer, he looks after his horses unbelievably well and they always look fantastic when he produces them. I can recommend him to anybody."

Nick Moraitis AO

(Arabian Gold)

"I would unreservedly recommend David to any owner wanting to have a more involved role in their horses’ racing path. His feedback on horses’ progress is unequalled by any other trainer I have been involved with both in accuracy and honesty. David and I have enjoyed a remarkable strike rate with our horses."

Terry Mullens

(Choice Words, Hidden Gem)
"David brings a combination of a small boutique racing stable, very hands-on personal attention to his horses, a rural stabling and training environment in a city location with an exceptional training partner - Dr Michael Robinson. In a game of inches, these type of advantages can mean the world of difference."
