Simon Crisford

Simon Crisford, who for many years was Sheikh Mohammed’s racing manager, took up training in 2014 – with the Sheikh’s full support. In his previous role Simon had worked in concert with some of the very best trainers and it was his long held ambition to become one himself. 

Simon immediately proved his capabilities establishing a 26 per cent strike rate in his first season when he sent out the Solario Stakes (Gr 3) winner First Selection. Simon has just relocated to Gainsborough Stables, Newmarket. He trained his first Royal Ascot winner for Sheikh Mohammed Obaid, Ostilio in this year’s Britannia Handicap. With Century Dream he landed the Gr3 Diomed Stakes at Epsom.

Simon’s handling of Highclere’s four-time winner Archetype has been exemplary and his feats in France and in Britain have made Highclere headlines.
