Rae Guest has a lifetime’s experience of working with racehorses, first as a jockey and then a trainer in Newmarket, the headquarters of British racing. He is probably best known for his record in training fillies. Group 1 winning two year old Serious Attitude (Group 1 Cheveley Park Stakes 2008 and Grade 1 Nearctic Stakes at Woodbine Canada in 2010) and dual Group 1 winner My Emma (Yorkshire Oaks, Prix Vermeille) lead the charge, supported by multiple Stakes winning sprinters Millyant and her son Mirza, Group winners Yomalo and Miss Anabaa; 1,000 Guineas placed Aldbourne; Cape Factor and high class stayers Moments of Joy and Marakabei.
Not known for making a fuss, Rae can train any kind of horse and he takes a pride in getting the best out of every animal who sets foot in the yard.
