Best known for his succcess with super star Tie The Knot, Guy Walter has enjoyed great success in the horse racing industry.
Often overlooked when discussing the top trainers in Australia, Walter's impressive career includes 33 Group 1 victories over 120 stakes wins , and his horses have won over $40 million dollars in prize money.
One of Walter's greatest achievements was his amazing feat to train the first three placegetters in the 2005 Doncaster Handicap, becoming the first trainer to do so since the race first ran in 1856.”.
Walter started training on the South Coast of NSW in 1980, before moving to Warwick Farm five years later. His Warwick Farm stable is now complemented by an excellent pre training stable at Goulburn.
2010-11 was a good year for the stable, achieving 25 winners in the metropolitan area and 88 winners overall. Only Peter Snowden, Chris Waller and Gai Waterhouse trained more winners in NSW in the season. There are good signs for even better results in 2011-12.
We also regard these early winners as a positive sign from the stable’s Goulburn operation, enabling young horses to be educated on Goulburn’s excellent grass tracks. The stable greatly appreciates the backing of our owners in our commitment to Goulburn. We are very fortunate in having an excellent team of people down there, managed by John Bateman.
Training is very much a team effort. Wendy and I greatly appreciate the skill, hard work and loyalty of all our staff. We are fortunate in having some excellent work riders but, also having some outstanding ground staff without whom the stable couldn’t operate.
