Minervini Not Renewing Training Licence
Adelaide's Morphettville-based trainer Mark Minervini (currently 9th on the South Australian premiership) announced he will not to renew his licence after the current season ends on July 31. Minervini (a trainer for 15 years) told Radio 4TAB: "From July 31 I'll have a break. There are a couple of personal issues. My mum hasn't been in the best of health & will need a fair bit of support. That's my major motivation, but I have a few issues of my own. I was diagnosed with diabetes a while ago & I've found the pressure of training & dealing with owners meant I never devoted enough time to myself. There's more to life than horses & training horses. Maybe I'm having a mid-life crisis, but I'm very comfortable with the decision."
