Ed Walker has had something of a nomadic existence during his first decade with a licence.
He has changed yard no fewer than four times but since late 2016 has been settled at Kingsdown Stables in Upper Lambourn.
Walker has trained more than 370 winners and has had a Stakes winner every year since taking out his licence.
He caught the racing bug from an age and apprenticeship started at Watership Down Stud and took him to Australia and France before returning to Britain to work for Roger Charlton followed by Luca Cumani whom he was assistant to for four years.
He is married to Camilla and they have two children.
In 2021 the Group 1 breakthrough was achieved by Walker, with Starman providing it for him, winning the Darley July Cup at Newmarket.
