Dr  Jack O’Brien


Jack graduated from Massey University in late 2012. He spent 12 months at Randwick Equine Centre in Sydney completing an internship before returning to NZ and working for a short spell in the lower North Island. Most recently he has spent 18 months in equine practice in the lower Auckland area.

Jack has an active and very keen passion in the NZ Thoroughbred racing and breeding industry, having a long-standing association through his parents and grandparents, and on any given Saturday you will almost always find him near something broadcasting Trackside. If not at the lake, out on the boat! He is very excited to be joining the team at WEVC and has a special interest in racetrack and performance horse practice especially lameness, performance medicine and diagnostic imaging.

You may also meet his Pug 'Nala' who accompanies him on most days!
