Olly was with Alan King before moving to Ireland where he was directly involved with 10 Cheltenham festival winners as Assistant Trainer to Gordon Elliot.

Foxtrot Racing have been with Olly since 2017 when he moved back to his home in Wilmcote near Stratford Upon Avon to set up his own training establishment with just 15 horses. A brilliant horseman and very impressive man. He has now trained nearly 300 winners including a Grade 1 winner and won over £2 million in prize money.

Olly also won the longest drive competition at the Foxtrot Racing Golf Day!

He is hugely respected within racing circles for his ability to improve horses.

Martin's communication and attention to detail is outstanding and we've enjoyed success and plenty of fun with every Foxtrot horse that has joined his yard.
