D. Weld

Nationality: Ireland

Background:
Age: 70. Dermot Weld is one of Ireland's greatest trainers and a pioneer of horseracing's globalisation. A qualified vet, he assisted his father, Charlie Weld, as well as Tommy Smith in Australia, before starting under his own licence in 1972. He was champion trainer that first year. He is based at Rosewell House on the Curragh from where he has sent out more than 4000 winners and has been Ireland's Champion trainer 22 times by number of wins. He has won 17 Irish Classics and three English Classics, most recently with dual Derby winner Harzand in 2016. Since 1990, Weld has succeeded in spreading his net beyond Europe. In 1990 he shocked America as he saddled Go And Go to win the G1 Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the US Triple Crown. The following year Additional Risk won the first edition of the Hong Kong Invitation Bowl, now the Hong Kong Mile. In 1993 he landed perhaps his most famous victory of all as he took Vintage Crop to Australia to win the G1 Melbourne Cup, a feat he repeated in 2002 with Media Puzzle. Weld's record with jumps horses is also notable and he has farmed the famous Galway Festival down the years, winning races under both codes. HKIR wins (1): Hong Kong Invitation Bowl (1991 Additional Risk). Hong Kong wins: 1
