St Leger and Dual Oaks winning trainer Ralph joined the KVT training ranks in 2013 and has trained many winners for KVT. He has trained around 950 domestic winners and in 2016 he hit his first century with an amazing 101 winners.
After a wide ranging apprenticeship in Australia, Ireland and the UK with some of the biggest names, Ralph took over Peter Walwyn’s licence, where he was assistant trainer, in 2000. Following a spell in Lambourn then Whitsbury, Ralph is now based in his own purpose built yard, formerly the base of Toby Balding and family.
Ralph has tasted Classic success three times in the Oaks (Look Here 2008; Talent 2013) and St Leger (Simple Verse 2015) as well as the Breeders Cup Marathon (Muhannak 2008) and QIPCO Champions Fillies and Mares Stakes Group 1 (Simple Verse 2015).
Ralph trains a lovely three-year-old filly by Mastercraftsman named Fancy Dress.
