Ed started training in October 2010 when he rented a small 24 box yard within St Gatien Stables in Newmarket. From there he sent out his first runner which was Riggins, a Listed winner on November 27th 2010.
Since then Ed has grown the business gradually which has seen him relocate no less than four times. His nomadic existence finally came to an end in December 2016 when he and his team settled at Kingsdown Stables in Upper Lambourn.
Ed has trained over 250 winners and has had a Stakes winner every year since taking out his licence. The quality of his string has gradually improved over the years and although Ed is yet to join the elite club of Group 1 winning trainers, he has come very close twice with Stormy Antarctic. Ed loves to travel his horses and has trained Stakes winners in France, Germany and Australia as well as gaining some important black type with fillies in North America.
Ed is an experienced horseman with a hands on approach to training. He prides himself on communication and getting to know his horses, staff and owners. Not from a racing back ground but brought up riding, he caught the bug early on thanks to his parent's passion for horses and racing. Educated at Radley College, Ed knew from an early age that training racehorses was what he wanted to do. His apprenticeship started at Watership Down Stud and took him to Australia and France before coming home to work for Roger Charlton followed by Luca Cumani whom he was assistant to for four years. Like both Roger and Luca, Ed has an individual approach to training and prides himself on placing his horses in the right races.
Ed is finally settled at Kingsdown Stables with his wife Camilla and their two children Matilda and Rupert.
