From an early age Olly’s future lay in the racing industry. Originally Olly’s ambitions were in the saddle. He attended Pony Club, hunted and led his Mum’s string, before riding in point-to-points and progressing to riding as an amateur under rules. He rode 30 winners before he inevitably outgrew his breeches!

Once Olly had decided he wanted to a train, he spent a year with Alan King. He then made the move to Ireland, joining Gordon Elliott as Assistant Trainer. Olly spent four seasons with Gordon, tasting success at the highest level. During Olly’s time, Gordon won several Grade 1’s, numerous Festival winners and was all topped off by Don Cossack winning the 2016 Gold Cup.

In 2017, the time came for Olly to take up the reins himself. Three years into his training career, Olly has trained 216 winners, won over £2 million in prize money and is a Grade 1 winning trainer. Not a bad start so far!

“Many of my staff have been with me since day one. There is a great team atmosphere at Warren Chase, I’m very lucky to have such a good bunch”.
