Welcome to RWPG Racing
Rupert Pritchard-Gordon was brought up in Newmarket, where his father Gavin trained several Group winners at Shalfleet Stables and then at Stanley House. After leaving school, he spent a Sales season assisting Bloodstock agent John Ferguson before joining David Hayes in Australia. He spent a year in Australia and New Zealand (working for Dave O'Sullivan) before being offered the job as Assistant Trainer to Criquette Head on his return.
Before joining Mme Head, he spent an important period breaking young horses with Monty Roberts in California. Leaving for France in 1993, he joined one of the most powerful stables in Europe and was very closely involved with the careers of Champions such as ANABAA, HATOOF, PAS DE REPONSE and EGYPTBAND among others.After nine years as Criquette Head's Assistant, he decided the time felt right to start training himself, having been fortunate in gaining invaluable experience from Criquette and her father Alec Head.
Since becoming a Trainer in 2002, Rupert's has trained one of the leading fillies of her generation in BELLE ALLURE, winner of the Group 3, Prix Vanteaux at Longchamp. He has also been responsible for the Classic and Group 1 performers CHANTILLY BEAUTY, RUNAWAY and ARVADA.
