Hugo Palmer has quickly established himself as one of the country’s leading young trainers with 35 Stakes winners to his name. But who is the man behind such success?
Starting out in 2011, with just 11 inexpensive horses. Hugo Palmer steadily claimed wins with horses such as Making Eyes in 2012, who won the Listed Prix Jaques de Bremond in France as the stable’s first Stakes winner.
But, it was not until Covert Love that the yard really came into its own. Covert Love was one of the highest rated fillies in the world, winning five top races in 2015. Including the Group 1 Irish Oaks and the Group 1 Prix de l’Opera.
Hugo Palmer’s other racehorses helped the yard to break the £1 million barrier for the very first time with a number of Group and Listed wins. Including Galileo Gold, who won the 2000 Guineas and the St James’s Palace Stakes and Hawksmoor who won the German 1000 Guineas.
From this moment, the yard reached even higher, amassing UK prize money of over £2 million with Group and listed wins by Afandem, Best of Days, Gifted Master and Home of the Brave. All of whom helped in Hugo Palmer’s top ten finish in the Trainers Championship.
With such a successful young trainer bringing on new horses in horseracing HQ. We are very excited to have his yard as a destination on the next Short Head Tour. If you’d like to meet the stars behind the names and the wins then the Short Head tour is definitely for you.
With a visit to The Gallops and a trip to the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art at Palace House, also on the tour, this is the perfect way to spend a summer’s morning in Newmarket this August.
