ABOUT US

Highlander Training Center

FORGING CHAMPIONS

At Highlander Training Center, we know that thoroughbred horses are meant to win. Our mission is to start and train horses using proven techniques, experienced horsemanship and attention to detail to bring each horse to their full potential on the track.

From trainers to riders, to grooms, our exceptional staff understands what is needed in training a thoroughbred racing champion.

TRAINERS

Jimmy “Scooter” Dodwell co-founded Highlander Training Center in July of 2017. He immediately began building a skilled team of riders, grooms, and trainers to offer the highest level of professional horsemanship in developing each individual horse.

For 17 years, Scooter worked with his father, Ed, breaking and training thoroughbreds at Diamond D Ranch. When Ed retired, Scooter assumed his duties as head trainer, which he carried out for 13 years before creating Highlander Training Center. Over the past 30 years, Scooter has developed horses who have won over 300 stakes races, including 2009 Horse of the Year, Rachael Alexandra.

Everything we do at Highlander Training Center revolves around one thing: doing what is in the best interest of the horse. With over 100 years of combined experience, our certified team of trainers have developed over 300 stakes winners in the past 30 years and won multiple awards. We focus on early-life training, when we have the most influence over the development and potential of each horse.

Each horse is cared for attentively with regular exercise and therapy. We carefully monitor the health of each horse through regular veterinary care, and nightly security checks are done for all horses.
