    Talking to Ian Williams this morning, he mentioned that Thirsk is now the only UK course (flat and National Hunt) where he hasn’t had a winner.

    It got me thinking about whether any current trainer has had a winner at every track. Obviously the likes of Sir Michael Stoute won’t have had winners at the jumps courses and the likes of Paul Nicholls won’t have had winners at some of the flat courses.

    So does anyone know of a trainer who has had a winner at every racecourse in the UK?

    Tuffers,

    Can’t answer your question but I’ll certainly be interested if Ian Williams sends a runner to Thirsk before the end of the flat season as I’m sure he’ll be keen to complete the set.

    I did think of Peter Easterby but I’m not old enough to know if he ever sent runners down to the likes of Newton Abbot or Exeter…and he’s not a current trainer!

    Good call. Is there anyone else we can add to the list?

    Did Pat Haslam manage winners at Great Leighs or Ffos Las?

    He was certainly training during the existence of both but I’m not sure that he had a runner at Ffos Las or a winner at Great Leighs.

    Great Leighs in particular throws a spanner in the works of these sorts of records, and some time is needed for trainers to catch up with Ffos Las.

    Would David Evans have got anywhere near the set?

    In fairness, no but I wasn’t counting Great Leighs.

    Would David Evans have got anywhere near the set?

    I’m not sure. It’s one of those records that’s quite difficult to check as the racing post website only shows the trainer’s last five years of results.

    The set could well be completed on Monday :wink:
