From an Irish dairy farming family, Joe came to England in 1984 and quickly gained experience riding under rules as a conditional jockey to Stan Mellor and Jenny Pitman. His talents as a rider and all-round complete horseman also extend to every aspect of pre-training, breaking and educating young horses.
Joe Tuite entered the training ranks in 2010 after eight years as assistant trainer to top Flat handler Mick Channon, having previously worked in a similar capacity for Charles Egerton. He trains from a purpose built yard in Lambourn, near to Hungerford.
From training 6 winners in season one (2011) Joe more than doubled this tally the next year, training 13 winners in his second season. He enjoyed his biggest victories in 2014 when Litigant won both the Betfred Ebor Handicap at York and the Betfred November Handicap at Doncaster.
