Ciaron Maher

For his relatively short time in training, Ciaron has proven himself to be the most exciting young trainer in Australia who has continued to go from strength to strength each season over the last ten years, building a strong stable at his Caulfiled base in Melbourne. 

Ciaron began as a dual trainer in Warrnambool, the home of jumps racing in Australia, after successfully competing as a jumps jockey in Australia and rode in England, Ireland and Dubai during his career. After training numerous top class performers over jumps, Ciaron discovered the thrill of Group 1 success on the flat in 2007, less than three years into his training career, with Tears I Cry in the Group 1 VRC Emirates Stakes at Flemington. Since then, Ciaron has saddled top-level winners across Australia including multiple Group 1 winner Srikandi, VRC Oaks winner Set Square and most recently his VRC Oaks, Caulfield Cup and The BMW winner Jameka, who has flown the flag for Ciaron over recent seasons. His talents with fillies are well renowned, but Ciaron proved he can produce a top-class colt as well with Bon Aurum claiming the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Flemington in 2017.
