[Video] Cypriot fled conflict-torn Cyprus to fulfill horse training dreams in Flemington

 

As the sun begins to rise above the famed Flemington race track, trainer Saab Hasan moves from box to box stretching the horse’s legs to check for soreness and injury.

He hasn’t had a day off in 12 years, but training horses is the only thing he’s ever wanted to do.

He says he declared his intentions to his grandfather in Cyprus at the tender age of 3.
