Owen is a former jump jockey who started training as a private trainer for Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum after twelve years as assistant to the great Sir Michael Stoute, during which time he was involved in the careers of several Derby, Arc De Triomphe and Breeders Cup winners. Owen trained his first Group 1 winners in 2022 with Hukum in the Coronation Cup and Minzaal in the Haydock Sprint Cup capping a memorable year. Hukum went on to win the King George at Ascot last season, and was beautifully handled by Owen throughout his career. Owen is now able to take horses for outside owners at his purpose built Farncombe Down Stables outside Lambourn where he operates at a very high strike-rate from his relatively small team of horses.
