David has been based on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland since 2016 after deciding to move his training base from Warwick Farm, Sydney.


The move to QLD was based on a combination of industry and lifestyle factors and has proven a huge success with the emergence of stars of the turf such as YANKEE ROSE, ALLIGATOR BLOOD and GYPSY GODDESS.


David also has a good history of improving tried horses. The trainer’s results come from a deep understanding of each horse as an individual, combined with dedication and planning.
