William took out his licence in 2006 and was originally based in West Sussex. However in 2020 he moved into Newmarket’s state of the art Rathmoy Stables; where he won with KVT’s Sir Busker, his first runner sent out from there. He followed this up with his first Royal Ascot winner with Sir Busker the same year . William was previously assistant to Ed Dunlop and the late John Hills, and his biggest win to date came with Illustrious Blue taking the Group 2 Goodwood Cup at his local track.
Having trained over 370 domestic winners – including successes at Group 2, Group 3 and Listed level, he is a very hands on trainer with around 60 horses in his yard. William had a record 2021, training a joint record 34 winners and his highest prizemoney haul to date.
This year he will also have an athletic looking son of Churchill named Chartwell House in his KVT squad.
