After 22 years Kevin ‘Millie’ Walls will be stepping down from his role as Stud Manager at Trelawney Stud.

Walls joined the Trelawney team in 1998 and has been an integral part of the farm during that time, seeing 25 individual Group One winners bred, raised or sold from the property pass through his hands.

“Millie has been instrumental in the overall success of Trelawney Stud,” Managing Director Brent Taylor said. “He has led our team of staff to achieve the results we have strived for and we are sure Millie will continue to succeed in whatever he chooses to do in the future.

“Millie will always be a part of the history of Trelawney. Both Cherry and I, along with past and present clients, want to thank Millie for his dedication and commitment to excellence and wish him well for the future.”

Walls said his decision to depart Trelawney Stud was not an easy one to make though felt the timing was right to embark on a new venture.

“Brent and Cherry have been consolidating their operation over the past few years,” Walls said. “I feel this is the right time for me to step down from my role and seek a new challenge.

“I would like to thank Brent and Cherry for their support and the opportunities they have given me and I am proud of what we have achieved over the past 22 years.

“I’m yet to make a decision on where I head next but am looking forward to starting the next chapter.”
