Top 10 Horse Racing Trainers

Some sports have their roots in culture, like horse racing. For example, in the UK, people love horse racing and love betting on it. This also migrated to the United States, where horse racing was the only sport which you could bet on, for a long time. Punters had to resort to VPNs and other ways of dodging the government, to place their bets. Some would go as far as to look up guides and other ways of improving their betting skills, such as this betfair Cheltenham 2020 betting guide.

And in some of the guides, you might see that a large part of horse racing is the trainer. Some trainers have lots of victories while others are unheard of. Here are the best horse racing trainers.

Dale Baird

One of the winningest trainers in the United States, with a stunning 9445 victories. He is very famous at the Mountaineer Racetrack in West Virginia. He had a long career, which lasted from 1961 until his death in 2007.

Michael Dickinson

Known for his outlandish skills and the development of a surface called Tapeta, Dickinson is highly respected in the world of horse racing.
