Darryl Hansen

Darryl commenced training in 1993 and has quickly made a name for himself as a successful trainer on the Sunshine Coast.

As a school boy Darryl worked part time as a stable hand and then took up a full time position following school with Townsville trainer Jim Dixon for two years.

Darryl then worked for the Australian Meat Holding Association and while there started to dabble in buying a few horses.

Following this Darryl moved to Rockhampton where he continued working for the same company but decided to gain his trainers license.

With a great passion for the thoroughbred industry Darryl chose the career path of becoming a full time trainer and has held a license ever since.

In December 2010 Darryl and his wife Debbie established the Corbould Park stable where they operate out of the Vo Rogue and Strawberry Road Barns.

Darryl is very much a "hands on" trainer and gives every horse equal and quality attention.

Darryl enjoys getting young horses to the races and winning early but also enjoys taking other trainers off casts and redeveloping them to come back to the winners stall.

Darryl like every trainer gets a great kick out of training winners anywhere and especially enjoys seeing the excitement and delight on his owners faces when their horses pass the post first.
