Congratulations to Vicki Szecsodi Sydney Strapper of the Year 2014-2015

Vicki Szecsodi commenced her employment at Bjorn Baker Racing in April of 2014 and joined the stable as an accomplished horsewoman and experienced stablehand. Vicki has an all-encompassing role and her responsibilities exceed the normal requirements of a strapper/stablehand.

During her employment at Bjorn Baker Racing, Vicki has shown that she is passionate about equine welfare and for this reason she oversees the routine medical treatment of the horses on a daily basis. Her years of racing experience mean that Vicki can be entrusted with the responsibility of accompanying the horses to country and provincial race meetings and she is willing and able to act as stable representative when Bjorn is unable to attend the races. Vicki has also voluntarily assumed the role of mentoring the junior staff at the stable and is willing to share her experience and knowledge with her colleagues.

Vicki is a dedicated and diligent employee and a worthy recipient of the Strapper of the Year award.
