Shivananda Racing

Shivananda Parhboo is the son of trainer Bisnath Parboo . The reason for the difference in spelling involves a typo when the family moved from their native Trinidad to the United States. He started going to the races in Trinidad when he was five years old and has been involved in racing in some form since. He and 27 members of the family own all the horses trained by their father. They had success in 2011 with Grade 1 winner Giant Ryan and Trinniberg.
