Pete graduated from the University of Sydney 1994. He subsequently worked in the cattle industry in the Kimberley region of Northern Australia before moving to the UK in 1996. Here, he gained experience in large animal practice in the West Country (Kingston Vets, Sherborne and Horsepond Vets, South Molton) before joining the racing team at Rossdale & Partners in Newmarket in 1998. He became a partner in 2005.
Pete's clinical research interest is the early detection and improved management of racehorse orthopaedic injuries. In August 2014, CRC Press published his book The Racehorse: A Veterinary Manual - the first comprehensive textbook wholly dedicated to veterinary management of the racehorse.
In 2018 Pete was awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) for Meritorious Contributions to Clinical Practice. Fellowship is the highest level of membership of the RCVS for members who have demonstrated significant original contribution in their subject.
