Bridgette O'Sullivan and Lance O'Sullivan
O'Sullivan is another Treasure Island contestant who is no stranger
to competition. The horse trainer and former champion jockey is
able to list winning the Japan Cup among his greatest achievements.
And he's no quitter either. In his record-filled career as a jockey
he battled past serious injury and pain to make an amazing comeback
after a horse rolled on him in a horrific accident during a race in
Australia. After around 2500 wins Lance finally hung up his saddle
and turned trainer.
Lance's wife Bridgette shares his passion for horses, and as the ambassador of the Auckland Racing Club will often be seen hosting Fashions in the Field competitions and other events. Bridgette co-hosts a weekday magazine/chat show on Waikato's Family Television Network. Lance and Bridgette have two daughters - Caitlin (9) and Georgia (7).
