DENIS PAGAN | Legendary AFL Coach
I have known John Sadler for over 27 years and he has trained and prepared twenty of my horses during that time. John is a very professional and meticulous individual, he never leaves anything to chance always thinking about the horse and how it can be placed to give his owners the best opportunity  for success and winning.

Goblet was John’s first winner in 1987 and since that time he has also trained many big race winners, including the 1992 Australian Guineas winner Jolly Old Mac, Efficient in the 2007 Melbourne Cup and  2006 VRC Derby, Linton in the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap and 1994 Oakleigh Plate winner Kenvain.

Visit John’s stable and you will see how diligent and fastidious he is with his presentation and how spotless his barn is. His horses are always presented the same.  John is also a very likeable and gregarious person, nothing appears too much trouble for him and I have always found his communication at a 5 star level.

I was talking to one of John’s fellow trainers recently and he conveyed to me that John was the best horseman he had been involved with.

In my opinion placing your horse with John Sadler will be a most enjoyable experience and at the same time giving your horse the best prospect of reaching it’s potential.

THE HON DENIS NAPTHINE | Premier of Victoria 2013-14 & Victorian Minister for Racing 2010-14

I have known John since our schooldays together. He has always been passionate about horses and racing.  John has become a widely respected master trainer through his love for, and understanding of, horses and built on his hard work, world-wide experience together with great skill and judgement.
