David's nephew Tom grew up at Lindsay Park under the eye of his grandfather, Colin Hayes and joined the racing team in 1993 working in the Angaston stable.

The purchase of the property in Euroa in 1999 saw Tom oversee its initial development, transforming it into the pre-training and breaking-in arm of Lindsay Park.

In 2006, Tom held a trainer’s licence whiling running the pre-training/breaking complex.
Tom re-located to the Flemington stables in 2009 as David’s assistant trainer. The further development of the Euroa property saw Tom’s expertise in building the cutting edge training complex become imperative, along with his horse training experience.
