Marcus Tregoning Racing & Whitsbury Manor Stables
Fast forward a year and Marcus sounds typically upbeat as he is beginning to make his mark at the height of his second season at one of the best-equipped private training yards in the country.
He says “I am feeling very positive about the future. We have around 45 horses in training, including twenty two year olds and the plan is to build up for the future. Everyone here is excited about the new season.”
Marcus’s impressive CV includes a Derby winner Sir Percy (2006), who defied current convention that owners need to fork out untold fortunes to find success at the highest level.
Marcus paid only 16,000 guineas at the sales for Sir Percy, who proved to be a brilliantly talented two year old and then finished second in the 2,000 Guineas before gaining a famous triumph at Epsom with a daring run late on the inside rail.
