Meet our HOSTS

Ashleigh Reeves

With a long-time family involvement in greyhound racing, Ash’s journey into the trots began as an announcer on TAB Radio and through friends in the industry. While broadcasting races in TABradio studio and attending the country trots throughout the State, it didn’t take long before she was hooked.

Ash has immersed herself in the world of harness racing, as an owner, stablehand (stable manager, more likely!) and even promoting and owning Off The Track horses, who have retired and are excelling in their next careers. Ash’s husband, Hayden, is a trainer and reinsman and their three children love having the horses in their backyard, at their property in Coolup.

She was a co-host at this year’s Ladies of Pacing Awards and you will also see her articles featured on The Trots WA social media platforms, with the latest harness news stories and talking all things trots!

Ash’s love and passion for harness racing has flourished and will continue to do so, participating in and promoting our sport.

Tom Buchanan

Tom is an avid lover of all things racing and sport and he brings vast experience both on and off the track.

As a reinsman Tom represented WA at the Australasian Young Drivers Championship in 2015, in New Zealand – finishing fourth in a high quality field of drivers.

Tom now works in a variety of roles within the industry; in the Group 1 winning stables of Justin Prentice, behind the microphone at Gloucester Park conducting pre-race interviews for Sky Racing and as an MC and host for Racing and Wagering WA events.

Tom tragically lost his niece Ahlia at only seven years of age to an incredibly rare cancer, diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG)  in her honour he has founded the ”Ride for Ahlia” – undertaking a gruelling 260km cycling challenge to raise money for assistance with the illness. This year 7 team members participated in the Ride for Ahlia and raised over $113,000 for RUN DIPG!

Matt Young

Matt brings over 15 years of experience and passion as a standardbred owner and voice of the WA harness racing industry.

Matt’s Pinjarra based family are immersed in the trots, with his parents, brothers and nieces all training and driving horses, there was little doubt as to what Matt’s major interest was as a child.

After securing a part-time position calling Trials at Pinjarra before he was even a teenager, Matt was immediately at home behind the microphone and knew this was the career he was destined for.

Matt joined TABradio as an announcer and before long, was heading off to country tracks as the official Race Caller.

He is immersed in the WA harness racing media, currently Hosts the weekly ‘’One Out One Back’’ harness racing show on TABradio and is an excellent statistician – his recall of harness heroes, horses’ form and stats are second to none!
