Lynlea Small

Lynlea Small

Lynlea Small has been privileged to spend the majority of her life immersed in the thoroughbred racing industry as the wife of Cyril Small, a gentle man, a brilliant horseman, and the jockey of former champion racehorse Vo Rogue. Along the way she has gained a deep knowledge of racing, while she learned to train racehorses in her own right, support her two sons Daniel and Braidon to forge a career in jumps racing, and guide her daughter Jessica as she embarked on her career along a different pathway. 

For the past twenty years, Lynlea has been equally immersed in the tertiary education sector where she works and has excelled academically with the highlight being awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. 

Lynlea had a front row seat throughout Vo Rogue’s career. Her in depth knowledge coupled with her strong research skills and well-honed writing ability, have resulted in a book that perfectly captures the story of a cult hero who captivated a nation with feats that catapulted him and his connections into Australian racing folklore. 

For Lynlea, The Vo Rogue Show represents her contribution to the history of horse racing in Australia.
