Following a successful career as a jump jockey, David began his training career in June 2010. Since then he has managed to produce over 850 winners while achieving totals of over 100 winners in the past 6 seasons. Along with the number of winners, the quality of those winners has increased also. In a relatively short training career David has won 24 Group races, 7 of which came at the highest level in Group 1’s; Suedois, Mondialiste, Amazing Maria, Move In Time and G-Force contributed to this tally.
In January 2016, David moved yards to Willow Farm on the outskirts of York, to accommodate his largest team of horses to date. Willow Farm’s purpose built Equaflow safe track 6 furlong gallop, along with a 5 furlong round gallop provide David and his team with the facilities needed to achieve even greater success in the future.
