Mohd Yusof studied the training of horses in Sydney under the tutelage of former legendary Australian trainer Tommy Smith, the father of present-day top Australian trainer Gal Waterhouse. Yusof was granted an MRA professional trainer licence in June 1990. After turning out a few handy gallopers, Yusof rocketed to fame with the best horse he has ever trained and probably one of the best horses to have raced at Kranji – 2002 Horse of the Year SMART BET. The multiple-group winner, which includes the Singapore Gold Cup, Derby and Raffles Cup in 2002 cut a swathe in the 2002 season, following a modest debut in Maiden class. He then went on to become one of Singapore’s highest stakes earners of all time with prizemoney close to $3 million. Yusof has not put the bridle on a champion since but has once in a while snared a few feature races, the latest being CONSTANT JUSTICE in the 2019 Group 3 New Year Cup.
