David M. Simcock
David Simcock, 41, has been training in Newmarket since 2004. Prior to that, he learnt his trade with such trainers as Ian Balding, Dick Hern and Luca Cumani, before starting on his own with just 10 horses. He now trains closer to 100 horses, and cme to prominence in 2011 thanks largely to the efforts of his multiple group 1 winner Dream Ahead, who as a three year old won the July Cup, Betfred Sprint and the Qatar Prix de la Foret at Longchamp. In 2012 he sent out I’m A Dreamer to win the Beverly D here at Arlington to add to those successes.
Simcock has sent out over 420 winners in his career to date, 56 of those in the current season, and is on target to break his best tally so far of 84 winners in 2013.
