Impressive Racing was founded by Kevin Berry and Darren McAuliffe in late 2004 and named in honour of their first Stakes Winning star thoroughbred - Impressive Stats.


Kevin as the stables' business and racing manager brings to the company his wealth of knowledge and experience in the business sector. He is the managing director of RBD Group of companies (accounting and business development services) whilst also having several other successful business investments in the regional and metro area.


Darren is the stables' head trainer; a 3rd generation horse trainer from the great south region having learnt the ropes from his late grandfather “Jock” McAuliffe who trained for more than 50 years and his father Brian who also trained for 30 odd years as well as being a stable Foreman at Ascot and also Caulfield.


Darren also worked for 8-time WATC premiership trainer Lou Luciani in the 1999/2000 racing season.


In his first 12 months training Darren achieved a 50% metro winner/runners strike rate, also winning the black type R.S.Crawford Stakes (lr) 1,100m equalling the 14-year-old state record time of Mr Cube (1:03:17 sec) in the process. Subsequent to then with a lot of hard work and grind, good times and bad, we have steadily built our stable to be a fully fledged metropolitan training stable, and achieved some great results along the way - much to the satisfaction of associates, clients and selves. Never ones to be fully satisfied however, it is constantly on with the grind, always looking towards the next level of growth, and success.
