Tim was born in England in 1964 and competed in pony club activities as a teenager. He came to the US in 1988 after a brief stint as a steeplechase jockey. Gradually Tim built a racing stable at Fair Hill Training Center.
“I haven’t jumped a twig in 20 years” was his reaction when approached to participate in this years Real Rider Cup. Some persuasion from his wife Penny and friend Priscilla eventually turned his frown upside down, and Tim decided to give it a go.
Just A Glance Away
Just A Glance Away, whom Tim trained for her racing career, is an Exchange Rate mare who earned $80,000. Mimi (her barn name) was a challenge to train and has adapted to the show ring much better than initially anticipated.
