I’ve been very lucky that I decided to set up my stall here in Chantilly over 25 years ago. It’s a lovely place to live and a wonderful area to train horses. When owners from abroad come and see their horses at home in the stables here at Chemin des Aigles there’s a major wow factor…

the beauty and history of Chantilly is unique.


I’ve been very fortunate to train two Arc winners; Suave Dancer and Montjeu. Those wins were something I never dreamed I would achieve. I’m certain that neither of those horses would have won the Arc if they hadn’t been trained here in Chantilly. To have home advantage is a massive plus.
