Michael has been a licensed trainer since 1989 and has now trained approaching 1400 winners. His most famous victory so far was Motivator’s triumph in the 2005 Epsom Derby and in 2009 Sariska won both the English and Irish Oaks and Art Connoisseur won Europes most prestigious sprint race, the group one Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot. He has also enjoyed international success in Canada, France, Italy, Germany, Dubai and Sweden.

Michael has trained many other notable winners and has trained 90 black type winners and has amassed over £22 million worth of prize money in the process.

2017 promises to be an exciting season with such a strong team of horses to go to war with, including our flag bearer of 2015 and 2016 BIG ORANGE, who has won both the Princess of Wales Stakes and the Goodwood Cup in successive seasons. He will bid for an historic third win in both races this year.
