Available Horses: Archie Watson

We’re delighted to welcome Archie Watson to our select group of trainers for 2019.

Archie's record is quite something. In just his second full year training Archie has won prestigious Group races at Royal Ascot, Doncaster’s St. Leger meeting and enjoyed several other Listed winners to boot. To date he's saddled three runners in Group 1 races and two of those have finished placed.

Behind the headlines are some hard knocking, impressive facts. In 2018 Archie Watson’s strike rate with his two-year-old runners is over 27%. That’s better than Aidan O’Brien (22%),  John Gosden (22%) and Richard Hannon (13%).

Indeed, Archie’s strike record with his youngsters is better than any other leading British trainer.

These statistics and Archie’s ability to improve nearly every horse sent to him from elsewhere strongly suggest he’s a young trainer destined for the top of his profession and we’re very excited to be working with him.

A great judge of a horse, Archie has sourced his own stable stars to date and is confident he’s recruited us some exciting youngsters at the sales.

More details about the our horses in training with Archie are available below.
