Andrew Balding

 

Andrew started his training career with a bang back in 2003 when Casual Look landed the Oaks. Globetrotting star Phoenix Reach followed soon afterwards and Andrew has now saddled the winners of nearly £10m in
prizemoney, including having his most successful season ever in 2012 with the winners of over £1.3m (to 21/10/12).
His base at Kingsclere is steeped in tradition and indeed horses have been trained at this magnificent venue since the mid-nineteenth century, when it was occupied by the great John Porter. More recently, Mill Reef, one of the best horses of all time, was trained here by Andrew’s father Ian back in the early 1970’s.
