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 360 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. 2021 looks set to be William’s best season of prizemoney earned.
William trains Sir Busker a multiple winning five-year-old gelding, Spanish Kiss a triple winning four-year-old son of Lope De Vega and winner Dual Identity an attractive three-year-old son of Belardo for KVT. He also trains unarmed two-year-old Bunker Bay and in 2022 will also train a smart looking Churchill Colt for KVT.
