From six boxes on his dad’s dairy farm to one of the best training facilities in the world, Ciaron Maher has come a long way in ten years.
Ciaron’s early promise as a jockey was ended because he grew too big but not before he had led the Australian Jockeys team against the Irish in the International Challenge. His size could not stop or diminish his love of horse racing and so he threw all his energy, enthusiasm and intelligence into becoming a trainer.
From CS Hayes to Bart Cummings, from Aidan O’Brien to Willie Mullins – he studied under the best and took aspects of training from them all and moulded them into his own unique method.
Ciaron firmly believes you only get better by learning from the best and recently spent time with Wesley Ward (USA), Roger Charlton and Richard Hannon (UK), Joseph 0’Brien (IRE) and André Fabre (France).
