As Charlie says, it is very seldom that people can say they are honestly living the dream, and clichéd as he feels it may sound, he believes that he is lucky enough to be one of those people. From the age of six, he started to develop an infatuation with the magical combination of intense competition and nature at its magisterial best.
Charlie has been fortunate to work with some of the great horsemen of our time, as stints with the likes of James Fanshawe, Lee Freedman and Nicky Henderson moulded his beliefs on how humans can eek the best out of an animal that is more intelligent than he ever thought imaginable.
Charlie’s first season was a complete whirlwind as he roared home 12 winners at a 15% strike rate. Highlights included; A winner, Barbary, with his very first runner. A Saturday afternoon double, courtesy of Accession and This is the day, at Newmarket and Haydock, and a runner in the Breeders’ Cup with Wet Sail. In 2015 he sent Kasseopia out to Woodbine in Canada to finish second in the Grade 3 Grey Stakes, This is the day finished third in the Nottinghamshire Oaks, and Wet sail picked up more black type by finishing a close third in the Queensferry Stakes.
