Bio: Racing journalist turned trainer George Baker – not to be confused with the unrelated…
Bio: Tom George is a racehorse trainer based in Down Farm, Slad, Stroud, a place he’s lived all of his live. A love of racing came easy for Tom, and he sought to expand his knowledge under the likes of
Gavin Pritchard-Gordon, the late Michael Jarvis and Martin Pipe.
This foundation led Tom George to his first winner, Newton Point at Worcester, in September 1993. Having trained over 700 winners since, 10 of which were grade one races (and two of those at Cheltenham) it’s clear that the quality shines through at the 400 acre Down Farm.
Tom enjoys exploring new bloodstock markets. and has has success with Polish horses, French bred horses, and Irish bred point to point graduates. A real mix.
2017 was the first year, after 25 years in racing, that Tom topped prize money of £1 million, which is both a sign of growing success, plus a cue that further investments might be taking place in order to push things to the next level. 2018 got off to a good start with 9-1 shot Summerville Boy winning the first race of the Cheltenham Festival, the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle.
