During a summer with the legendary French trainer and breeder Francois Doumen, Daniel developed an obsession in training winners.
He has since travelled the world, from Australia with Gai Waterhouse to California with Ben Cecil, mastering the horsemanship required to develop your racehorse to win.
Three years with Roger Charlton gave Daniel insight into developing racehorses for owner breeders, including the Queen and Juddmonte. It taught him the importance of expert knowledge of racing form and bloodstock.
Time spent preparing yearlings for leading consignor Voute Sales and helping John Warren buy future talent such as Royal Ascot winners Memory and Approve, taught Daniel to identify the traits of winning racehorses.
