Bio: Kalre Burke took out his horse training license in 1990 and it didn’t take him long to start seeing results, with a handicap hurdle win on Temporale that very year. It took until 1994 for the big wins to start rolling in with Daring Destiny in the Ayr Gold Cup, the horse then gifted him his first group one win at Phoenix Sprint Stakes at Leopardstown.

A successful move to High Havens Stable in Newmarket followed and the wins kept rolling in, then a year on Burke purchased his current yard, Spigot Lodge, in Middleham, North Yorkshire.

Controversy factored in when Burke was accused of supplying inside information to gambler and owner Miles Rodgers, and a ban resulted in his wife taking over his yard for a period of time.  Further success followed upon Burke’s return including  Quiet Reflection in the Commonwealth Cup at Ascot and the Sprint Cup at Haydock in 2016.
