THE TEAM

GEORGE & CANDIDA BAKER

4630

George and Candida have grown the business together over the past 8 years. Laughing at the same jokes, sharing the inevitable disappointments, celebrating the good days. George spent far too long shouting down telephones in the City, whilst Candida was an extremely talented business-woman, nominated for “Business Woman of the Year” in 2005. The decision to take out a Licence to train racehorses in 2008 saw a massive sea change in both their lives. Their passion for the sport of horseracing, and their desire to see the business succeed at the highest level, has been a potent mix. By surrounding themselves with some exceptionally talented people, George and Candida have seen the business grow and flourish in recent times.

PATRICK & VALERIE MURPHY – ASSISTANT TRAINERS

Having met at the historic Kildangan Stud, Patrick and Valerie then spent many years as work riders in Dubai. Returning to the UK, they set up a highly successful breaking and pre-training yard in Northamptonshire. Taking in horses from several of the country’s leading trainers, they soon forged a reputation built on hard work and professionalism. When George and Candida bought Far Westfield Farm in Warwickshire to launch their training career, Patrick and Valerie joined the team. They both have an intuitive understanding of the thoroughbred racehorse, and are supremely talented riders and judges of a horse.

A first point of call for owners, both new and long standing, Andrew’s understanding of the business is of utmost importance. And he is settled into his new position with great aplomb.
