Wife, mother, model and passionate racehorse owner, Nina loves all things fashion and horse racing.

Nina started her modelling career while still at school and continued to pursue it full-time once she graduated from university.

In 2002 she moved to Milan and worked extensively throughout Europe, collaborating with many lucrative brands, including Maybelline, Gianfranco Ferre, Intimissimi, and United Colors of Benetton, just to name a few.

In 2005 she met her now-husband Danny O’Brien, one of Australia’s leading horse trainers. Together they have two children, Thomas and Grace.

Based at Flemington, Danny also trains his horses at their multi-million-dollar training facility on Thirteenth Beach, Barwon Heads.

Besides supporting Danny with the business and publicity side of their horse-training venture, Nina is also an entrepreneur in her own right. She is the New Zealand and Australian Director for LEBON, a French luxury toothpaste. Of course, Nina is also the founder and curator of Track Mode, the go-to site for the stylish and intelligent racegoer.
