Mark Tompkins is a Classic winning Trainer who has long passed the 1000 winners mark since joining the training ranks.
Having won a total of 19 top Grade and Group contests over both the Flat and Jumps, Mark won his first Group race very early in his career and has maintained this standard ever since. He is brilliant at getting the best out of every horse and puts his heart and soul into finding the right opportunities for them to perform at their peak. His handling of his Classic-winning St Leger Group 1 horse, Bob's Return, is a perfect example of this.
Mark is chairman of the Newmarket Trainers' Federation and has been since 1997, and he is also a trustee of the Racing Centre. He is highly respected for his common sense and passion for all racing matters.
