As an owner, David has won both the Melbourne Cup (Subzero) and the Golden Slipper (Danzero), he has racehorses with numerous trainers including Gai Waterhouse and Anthony and Sam Freedman, and has tasted Group 1 success as a breeder with Epsom Handicap winner Rock Kingdom.
Musk Creek Farm is a culmination of both his professional and personal interests.
Moving to Melbourne with her family in 1991 from Hong Kong, Teresa’s keen eye for business saw her emerge as a pioneer of residential property conversions.
One of her first clients was David Kobritz, and they have been working together successfully ever since. Teresa was previously a member of the Hong Kong Jockey Club and her and David’s shared passion for racing drew them together.
Since stepping back from their property business, Teresa has played an active role in the development of Musk Creek.
In 2015 Teresa founded the Australian Chinese Jockey Club (ACJC), which aims to encourage local Chinese community engagement in racing in Melbourne and Sydney. Under Teresa’s guidance, the ACJC has flourished and in 2017 Racing Victoria became an official partner.
