Alby Pratt was one of the first to swim his horses extensively instead of hard trackwork. He also set up a private stables away from the major training centres and even mixed it with some harness racing. Pratt took over the training of many of the Lyndhurst Stud horses when their trainer Jack Wilson died in 1968.
His best horses included Bright Shadow (STC Tancred Cup [now the BMW], Tattersall's Cup, QTC Oaks [when trained by Jack Wilson]), Panvale (AJC Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Lismore Cup , Gold Coast Cup), Prunda (BTC International , BTC Newmarket, Tatt's President's Handicap), Competition (Brisbane Handicap), Tarompa (Albion 2000), Paiya (Easter Cup), Prince Olympus (Koomeela Stakes), El Twice (Meynink Stakes), Reckless Tradition (QTC Metropolitan), James Tradition (Weetwood, Eye Liner Stakes) and Val Carolyn (Tatt's President's Handicap).
