Charlie has been lucky enough to work with some of the great horsemen of our time, stints with the likes of James Fanshawe, Lee Freedman and Nicky Henderson moulded his beliefs on how humans can seek the best out of these truly intelligent animals.
In January 2014, Charlie joined the training ranks as the youngest licensed trainer in the country. Half way through his first year he moved to St Gatien Cottage Stables, on the Bury side of town, with the help of a fantastic team of experienced horsemen, and the incredible support of family and friends. Charlie enjoyed a great first season which included the incredible experience of his first runner at the Breeders Cup.
In four seasons Charlie has trained 66 winners at a 14% strike rate. Last year he celebrated his first stakes winner in MOONLIT SHOW and over the past three years has achieved black type with ACCESSION, WET SAIL, KASSEOPIA and THIS IS THE DAY. 2017 has been another fruitful season for Charlie. Highlights include an agonising second at Royal Ascot with Endless Acres and Prince of Arrans second in the Segaro stakes, also at Ascot. Here’s hoping for a fantastic end to the season.
