Stuart Williams has recorded well over 700 winners since becoming a licensed racehorse trainer in 1994. Stuart is widely respected as a shrewd trainer within the racing industry and also received the highest recognition from his peers when he was voted President of the National Trainers Federation with his inauguration in February 2011. Stuart Williams recorded his best ever year in 2019, having a record number of winners (74 winners) from only 65 horses in training and a record prize money haul (£950,000+).
The last few years have seen an impressive increase in winners, year on year, for the yard. Unfortunately due to the Covid Pandemic 2020 has been extremely challenging but we have managed to get close to another Group 3 win when Breathtaking Look got beaten by a neck at York. Rhythmic Intent also won at the York Dante meeting.
Although 2019 has proved to be our best year so far, not only did we have 74 winners and 277 horses placed, we also had our best achievement yet of 2 Group 3 winners with Breathtaking Look at Doncaster and Keystroke winning the Abernant stakes at Newmarket !! Both 2018 and 2017 were not far behind and this has been a huge achievement for both the team and Owners who have as always been so supportive.
Stuart has enjoyed success at some of racing’s biggest fixtures – including Glorious Goodwood, Ascot, Derby Day, Cambridgeshire meeting, Ebor meeting and Eclipse day – establishing himself an outstanding reputation for success from inexpensive horses.
