Tom is a young, ambitious trainer who has set up in Lambourn. He was assistant to Richard Hannon before taking the next step to setting up is own yard. Before moving back to the UK, he lived in Australia for 2 ½ years working as Assistant Trainer for Godolphin under John O’Shea. Tom described his time working with Godolphin as “an invaluable experience,” but felt that the opportunity to move back to the UK and work with Richard Hannon was too good. Before his time down under he gained experience in both Europe and America having worked for the likes of Darley, John Ferguson, Alain Royer Dupre, Francis Graffard and Kieran McLaughlin.
