Ed Walker

Kingsdown Stables

Ed started training in October 2010 when he rented a small 24 box yard within St Gatien Stables in Newmarket.

From there he sent out his first runner which was Riggins, a Listed winner on November 27th 2010. Since then Ed has grown the business gradually which has seen him relocate no less than four times. His nomadic existence finally came to an end in December 2016 when he and his team settled at Kingsdown Stables in Upper Lambourn. Ed is an experienced horseman with a hands on approach to training. He prides himself on communication and getting to know his horses, staff and owners.

Caradoc  |  Epsom

He is a very exciting 5 year-old and was very progressive at 4. This is his first run of the season and we are hopeful that he is on a very workable mark of 100. Physically he looks great and he has been working well at home. We are hopeful for a good run in what looks to be a competitive race.

English King  |  Epsom

This has been the aim for a long period of time and it is very exciting for the yard and connections to have the favourite for the Derby. In winning the Lingfield Derby Trial, he showed every attribute you would want in a Derby contender and he looks fantastic. This is a hugely exciting day for the whole team and watching him leave the yard this morning knowing that his preparation has gone smoothly, we couldn’t be happier. He is being led up by his groom and rider Matty Hicks, who has done a great job with him.
