Bass Racing was established by Mike Bass, and is now run by his daughter Candice Robinson.
Mike had his first grade 1 victory in the Clairwood Winter Handicap with the champion colt Cracker Lilly.
His career over the next 30 years has made him unquestionably one of South Africa’s top trainers, with more than 100 grade victories and numerous achievement awards.
Candice Bass Robinson used her fathers expert grounding by getting off to a flying start by winning South Africa’s most prestigious Grade 1 race, the Vodacom Durban July in her first year of training.
In so doing, she made South African history and rocketed into the top 10 of the world rankings for female trainers.
