From the age of six, I started to develop an infatuation with the magical combination of intense competition and nature at its magisterial best. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the great horsemen of our time, as stints with the likes of James Fanshawe, Lee Freedman and Nicky Henderson moulded my beliefs on how humans can eek the best out of an animal that is more intelligent than I ever thought imaginable.
In January 2014 I finally joined the training ranks and in July of that year, I took the lease on a beautiful yard called St Gatien Cottage Stables. Alongside a fantastic team of experienced horsemen, and the incredible support of my family, friends and long term girlfriend Vikki, I am about to embark on my second season as a race horse trainer.
Our first season was a complete whirlwind as we roared home 12 winners at a 15% strike rate. Highlights included a winner, BARBARY, with our very first runner. A Saturday afternoon double, courtesy of ACCESSIONand THIS IS THE DAY, at Newmarket and Haydock, and a runner in the Breeders Cup with WET SAIL.
