14% for his last 50 starters is all I can find more recently, plus a career lifetime 10% winners to runners.

Wasn’t sure where to post so put it in both just in case



Caulfield trainer Ciaron Maher is undergoing surgery this morning for a suspected broken femur after champion mare Jameka threw him at trackwork at Caulfield on Friday.

Maher's assistant trainer David Eustace confirmed Maher had been taken to hospital via ambulance after the incident at around 4am.

Eustace explained Maher was aboard Jameka trotting in the exercise area when she whipped around and threw him heavily to the ground.

He said Jameka was caught immediately after the incident and sustained no injuries.

Femur... wow. Bloody big bone to break.

Hopefully at the minor end of the scale - with the major end being a pair of plaster overalls.

And must say sorry to hear. Regardless of his weight it is the unfortunate reality of the business. Hope he has a speedy recovery.

Yeah, his weight is a non-factor and I reckon he can ride too.
Some of his horses look very well balanced.

Best wishes to CM ... but it does sound like Jameka's in good shape, so that's great news!

Caulfield Cup-winning trainer Ciaron Maher has entered into a training partnership with David Eustace, effective from the 2018-19 season onwards.

Eustace has served as assistant trainer to Maher in recent times, the 27-year-old having built on his previous roles as assistant to Roger Varian in the UK for four years, and having also worked in Australia for Peter Snowden and Peter Moody.

The son of long-time Newmarket trainer James Eustace, David is now making the official step into the ranks as of Wednesday.

"For as long as I can remember it has always been horses and training, so to be granted this opportunity by Ciaron is a huge honour," Eustace said.

"I am extremely grateful for the faith being shown by Ciaron and we look forward as a partnership to continued success in the future."

Maher credited Eustace as being an integral part of his business, especially in recent times during the transition period when Aaron Purcell took charge of Maher's horses for a six-month period across the spring/autumn.

"David has been instrumental in the growth and success of the stable over the past 12 months," Maher said.

"During my period of suspension under Aaron Purcell, David ensured the seamless running of the yard. He has proven himself as a hard-working professional, learning the Ciaron Maher Racing way but also bringing new ideas to the fore. I am delighted to have David join me on the ticket."

Their first runner in partnership will be Smokin' Bella at Sale on Wednesday, running in the Sale LDV Fillies and Mares BM70 Handicap (1422m).

Maher has won 10 Group 1s in his training career, including nine in the past four seasons - headlined by 2016 Caulfield Cup winner Jameka.

Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

This had to happen, a sign of the times , big stables now need eyes in the back of their head, staff, feed merchants overloading feed concentrates, multiple runners on multiple tracks in different states, accountants, internet savvy employees etc.etc. media want every piece of you, tuff gig now if ya can hack it imo.
