200 winners for Archie
24th April 2019
In just over two years since joining the training ranks Archie Watson has made a huge impression and reached another significant milestone last week when training his 200th winner.
It’s takes some doing to train a century of winners in a calendar year, so to do so in just his second full year training was a fine achievement by Archie.
The Lambourn-based trainer has kept up the momentum in no uncertain terms this year, with Littledidyouknow providing his 200th winner when winning the novice two-year-old race at Southwell on Sunday.
It was perhaps fitting that a two-year-old was the horse to win and achieve the milestone, given no less than 79 of Archie’s first 200 winners were juveniles.
Archie has made a lightning fast start with his youngsters this year, saddling seven juvenile winners already – more than any other trainer in Britain or Ireland.
With 33 winners already recorded this year, it would be brave man who bet against another century of winners this year for Archie, who continues to impress with every facet of his training operation.
An industrious trainer by nature, Archie continues with the hard work that has served him so well in his burgeoning career to date.
Aside training more winners, next on Archie’s agenda is sourcing more quality horses from the breeze-up sales.
We’re delighted to confirm that Archie will be sourcing us another two-year-old to boost our team at Saxon Gate.
Archie’s record when buying from the breeze-ups is outstanding and he’s expressed confidence in finding Hambleton’s owners another quality two-year-old from the breeze-ups.
More details on plans for this syndicate will appear in the diary soon.
