Scott is a racehorse trainer based at the picturesque Haygarth House Stud near Retford, Nottinghamshire.
Once the youngest trainers in Britain, Scott has continued to build up his yard and attract new owners since his first year of training in 2012. Scott's achievements include holding the highest strike rate at Epsom in the country with 44% winners to runners, a double at Ascot and the team have enjoyed success at courses the length and breadth of the country.
Scott has been around horses all his life and enjoyed success at the highest level in other equine pursuits as a youngster. His mother Yvette - "a fantastic horsewoman" quoted Simon Mapletoft - runs the stud at Haygarth House and has bred a string of winners including Dewhurst Stake’s hero Milk It Mick. Yvette is now a council member of the ROA and ROR trustee. Father Paul was Chairman of the Horseman's Group and President of the ROA. The families familiar blue and pink silks have graced many winners nationally and internationally. Scott gained his licence at the end of December 2011 after cutting his teeth working in the family stud farm and then working his way up through the ranks to become assistant trainer to Jeremy Glover and the late David Nicholls "I learned such a lot from working with excellent trainers," he says. "The experience I gained was invaluable."
Scott continues to attract attention from the media with his impressive results at the major courses around the country including a big win at the prestigious opening Lincoln meeting at Doncaster where he has also been responsible for winning The Brocklesby with Cock of The North who went on to Group placed success. Scott has also attracted major new owners to the yard including Simon Chappell who enjoyed victory in the Magnolia Cup at Glorious Goodwood and The Cool Silk Partnership who have enjoyed group 3 placing with their 2 year old filly Wings of The Rock.
