After a successful riding career, champion jockey Chris has recently swapped the saddle for the stop watch and is based at Queensland’s premier training complex at Eagle Farm Racecourse.
A riding career just shy of 30 years, Chris competed and succeeded at the elite level of the sport and has already hit the ground running from the other side of the fence – the training caper. Boasting a long list of honours, Chris’ main achievements included an overall of 42 Group 1 wins culminating in the ‘Big Four’ – Melbourne Cup, Cox Plate, Golden Slipper and Caulfield Cup.
As a trainer, Chris is now developing his Eagle Farm based stable with quality youngsters with likes of RHAPSODY ROSE (listed Carter Stakes) and BERDINI’S GIRL. He has already tasted feature-race success with the likes of BOOMSARA ($2M Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Winner), FIRST CRUSH (Grafton Cup) and OURS TO KEEP (first Group winner), as well as having had three starters in the $2M Magic Millions 2YO Classic. He can now also add Group 1 Winner to this list with his win in the Tatts Tiara on the weekend!
