Racehorse Trainers Victoria
Having cut his teeth as a jumps jockey, Ciaron Maher burst into the public eye as a horseman when 100/1 shot Tears I Cry won the 2007 Emirates Stakes at Flemington in a fairytale for trainer, owner and jockey.
Since then Srikandi, Azkedellia, Bon Aurum and Ruthven have also won G1s for him, but it was with Jameka that he really put his name in lights, the filly following her 2015 Oaks win with a runaway Caulfield Cup victory in 2016.
Ciaron Maher has also been a prolific winner of Victoria’s major jumps races. He has taken out the Grand Annual four times, twice each with Al Garhood and Regina Coeli - the former also securing two Brierly Steeplechases - while Man Of Class and Bashboy (twice) gave him three-straight Grand National Steeplechases, the latter also the first and so far only jumps horse to win more than $1m in prizemoney.
