Hosted by George & Maryanne Simon and John &

Linda Wheeler

George Simon is arguably New Zealand’s preeminent Race Caller and Trackside presenter. Along with wife Maryanne they are founders and principals of Cambridge breeding establishment Mana Park, renowned for having bred (among many winners) 3 time Group One winning Turn Me Loose, who now stands at Stud here in New Zealand.

A most convivial couple (George is also a wonderful singer and guitarist) they are excited about taking this epic journey to three of the world’s most iconic race meetings in The Curragh (1,00 and 2,000 Guineas), Epsom (Oaks and Derby) and Royal Ascot.


This is the 4th Epic Journey John and Linda Wheeler are co-hosting and almost certainly will be the most exciting. John is a “Hall of Fame” trainer and wife Linda a champion amateur jockey but that’s only part of the story. Raconteur, entertainer, golfer and just someone who loves life – John Wheeler is pure entertainment while wife Linda lends a touch of glamour and sanity to proceedings.
