From eventing to a multiple Group 1 winning trainer: Annabel Neasham
We catch up with multiple Group 1 winning trainer Annabel Neasham. Annabel was a keen eventer competing at 2-star level before her racing interests took hold. She followed her instincts and traveled to Australia to work for leading trainers Gai Waterhouse and Ciaron Maher. She now finds herself a leading trainer in one of the toughest jurisdictions Sydney has to offer. Her first runner was a winner and she trained her first Group 1 winner within her first nine months of training. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing how it started and I’m looking forward to her continued success.
