"Joan Scott is extremely competent and absolutely the best. Her attention to detail not only shows in the horses appearance but in their performance. Since my horses have been in Joans care they have excelled,79% in the money with 5 wins in a 7 month period. Joan gives 110%, I would strongly recommend Joan to anyone looking for an enjoyable and successful experience in horse racing." - Susan M Forrester
"I attend the races on a regular basis at Tampa Bay Downs, and I have been very impressed with the manner in which you carry yourself, how wonderful all your horses look in the paddock and on the racetrack, and the results of your limited starters." - Paul Lukin
"We were involved with you last year as minority partners in Unsung Heroine. We really enjoyed following her progress on your website. We thought you did a wonderful job with her." - Shon Haley
"I have known Joan Scott for about 12 years, from her days as a top exercise rider in Kentucky, then as an assistant to Nick Zito and now as a trainer. She is one of the most impressive up and coming young trainers in the USA. She has a tremendous work ethic and inspires this in her help. All you need to do is go see her shedrow and horses and you will see that everything is immaculate."
"She not only pays attention to detail but combines this with natural horsemanship skills which are second to none. This is a strong combination. She is very determined to succeed and leaves no stone unturned in her quest to get the best from her horses. One of her greatest attributes is that she treats each horse as an individual and I can personally vouch for the fact that she can create some “magic” with them often turning their careers right around. A case in point is a horse called Chatham Strait who was looking to be a $25,000 claimer. She resurrected his career and he is now sitting about 2 lengths off the best three year olds on the grass in the US."
"I would recommend Joan to anyone who wants a progressive, informative trainer who will give each and every horse as well as his owner the best odds possible to enjoy this game and succeed. Honesty and full disclosure are a given and her recognition and approach to training as a business displays a maturity that is beyond her years."
"She is simply...the best. " - Marette Farrell, sucessful bloodstock agent and owner.
