William took out his licence in 2006 and built a successful operation at Lower Coombe Stables in West Sussex’s historic Angmering Park. In 2020 William moved to Newmarket into the state of the art Rathmoy Stables – where he won with KVT’s Sir Busker with his first runner sent out from there, following this up with his first Royal Ascot winner with Sir Busker. 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 330 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 trains Sir Busker a multiple winning five-year-old gelding, Spanish Kiss a winning four-year-old son of Lope De Vega and Dual Identity an attractive three-year-old son of Belardo for KVT. In 2021 he will also train the beautifully bred Bunker Bay for KVT.
