Episode 312: Troy Williams

John Tapp Racing

You’ll go a long way to find anybody more passionate about harness racing than forty year old trainer Troy Williams who’s enjoying a winning streak at the moment. He talks about the stable runners who are making it possible. Troy loves a trotter and talks about Affaire De Cover who won a major 2YO Trot last year in torrential rain, and didn’t put a foot wrong. He explains that the horse got his name by accident. He profiles the stable favourite Iona Grinner who was tried as a pacer but couldn’t keep up. One day Troy left the hopples off, and got the shock of his life. The mare has won 20 races at Menangle at the trot. Troy has unpleasant memories of the floodwaters that inundated his Windsor property earlier this year. Trotting friends got him out of trouble. He explains that he enjoys the occasional race drive but chooses to use experienced drivers who are competing regularly. Troy outlines the advantages of the 1600m training track he uses adjacent to Hawkesbury racecourse. 150 horses use the facility. The trainer talks of early days at Dubbo and the talents of his parents. Troy reflects on his first meeting with his wife Iona who was a member of the NSW Mounted Police. He speaks of the equine interest of six year old daughter Charlie. He outlines his administrative role with the NSW Trotters Association.

Why is this Happening? with Troy Williams

I'm Curious with Ashley Asti

“We have a country that, at its core, is rooted in racism and slavery.” We can’t untangle mass incarceration from this country’s deep and ongoing history of oppression if we truly want to transform our notion of justice and prevent harm. After serving nearly 2 decades in prison, Troy Williams is on a mission to abolish what he considers a modern day form of slavery—prison—and to use his voice and his camera to help people like himself tell their stories. Troy is (among many things) the Executive Director of Restorative Media and a 2018 Soros Justice Fellow. While incarcerated, he founded, hosted, and produced the San Quentin Prison Report.
