Nacim Dilmi moved to Australia from France early 2009 and rode track work under the watchful eye of Bart before he went travelling. We were happy to see him return in 2010 where he continued riding and showed a keen interest in gaining experience and taking on more responsibilities.  As a result of his hard work, he was moved up to the position of stable Foreman.


Nacim has gained much experience from riding not only Bart but also for Gai Waterhouse and Greg Eurell in Australia, Christiane Head in France, and Paul Cole in England, bringing with him an array of varied techniques and horsemanship that he has learnt from different part of the world. Nacim also broadened his experience on pedigrees and the breeding industry when he completed a yearling preparation at the esteemed Kia Ora Stud.


Being a  crucial member of our stable, Nacim has a broad understanding of the horses at the stable, along with their care and management. He has become hands on in assisting James with the daily running of the stable; he uses his own experiences and skill gained in the industry, to get the best out of the stable and the horses. Nacim is well prepared to handle the challenges of being a Leilani Lodge foreman. He has saddled up a number of winners for the stable, and hopefully there are many more to come in the future.
