18/6/2018 Stokes set to operate Pakenham stable

Adelaide trainer Phillip Stokes is hopeful that his new Victorian stable at Pakenham will be in operation by the spring. Stokes plans to have the first part completed so that his spring carnival hopefuls can be housed at Pakenham from September, while continuing with bases in South Australia and Victoria. "This will probably become our main base," Stokes said. "It's exciting. We always have to travel our horses over and back which is quite taxing at times. We've done it with a lot of success but I'm sure if we've got our own base here we can do it better again. They've got all the earthworks in and the drainage. Pending weather, we hope to maybe have something operating in September.”
