Charlie joined our roster in 2014 having taken over the license from legendary father Barry, in August 2011. Faringdon Place is a high-spec bespoke yard with its own turf and all-weather gallops. Charlie’s early solo career has started with a bang! He trained his first Classic winner in May (Just The Judge, Irish 1000 Guineas) and rounded off a splendid 2013 with a Breeders' Cup win in November (Chriselliam, Juvenile Fillies Turf). 2014 was another good year for Charlie capped with Just The Judge's win in the E.P. Taylor Stakes at Woodbine, Canada. In 2015 Charlie trained two Royal Ascot winners, taking the inaugural Group 1 Commonwealth Cub with Muhaarar, who has since become a quadruple Group 1 winner before retiring to stud duties. 2015 was Charlie's best year to date, sending out 71 winners to earn over £2.2 million and coming 7th in the Trainers Championship.
Charlie trains our highly talented five-year-old sprinter Magical Memory, who has won the Duke Of York Stakes (Group 2), the Abernant Stakes (Group 3) and Stewards' Cup, Percy Thrower a three-year-old son of Sir Percy, The Big Short a three-year-old Bahamian Bounty gelding and very good looking two-year-old son of Born To Sea named Lifeboat.
