Young UK Race Horse Trainers To Look Out ForHorse racing is an incredibly exciting sport, both for spectators and for the riders. However, racing wouldn`t be possible without the trainers behind the riders and the horses. As with any sport, to excel and succeed, you have to have a good trainer, and the best trainers truly breed winners. Horse racing has seen some incredible trainers in the past, but now it`s time to look to the future and see what young UK racehorse trainers are coming to the scene with incredible talent and promise.
This Nottinghamshire trainer has been on the scene for a little while, but in the past couple of season has shown incredible promise and talent. In the year of 2015, he had a grand total of 94 winners and as of March this year, he had just over 20 winners. He`s had some incredible successes so far and it`s only a matter of time before we see more from him.
It`s not unusual for former jockeys to turn into trainers and Dalgleish is no different. He has been a licensed trainer for the past five years and the past couple of seasons has really seen some incredible improvement. This Scottish-born trainer has broken the record for the most number of wins for a Scottish trainer for three years straight if that`s not impressive I don`t know what is.
One of the newest members to the club, Crisford has been training only since last year. He didn`t begin training in the UK, but rather in Dubai for Godolphin as a racing manager. In his first season he saw 22 wins and for a rookie, that`s pretty outstanding. We`ll be seeing much more in his rise to fame in the coming seasons.
This horse trainer has been around for a few years now, but has really made headway these past two years and we expect to see more great wins from him. He`s had 15 wins so far this year
Burrows isn`t new at all to the racing scene, seeing as he was the former assistant of Sir Michael Stoute for 11 years, however, as of February 2015 he`s gone out on his own and this is the first time we`ve seen him prepare riders fully without the guidance of someone else. Like Dalgleish, Burrows is a former jockey and has some horses with amazing bloodlines being trained this year, so we have high hopes for his successes.
There are so many trainers out there and this is only a selection of some of the top ones we expect to excel exceptionally in the coming seasons. We`d love to hear about any trainers you believe we should be on the lookout for so comment below or reach out to us!
