TAN KAH SOON

​Son of former Penang trainer Dr Tan Swee Hock, Tan Kah Soon was among the first draft of trainees to join the prestigious Flying Start programme launched by Darley in 2003, and now known as Godolphin Flying Start. After spending two years travelling the world gaining industrial attachment with some of the best trainers in the world, Tan graduated in 2004, and immediately got a job, first as head lad, and then assistant-trainer to Godolphin’s trainer Saeed bin Suroor for seven years. Tan ended his overseas training in 2012 to return to his father’s yard in Penang in 2013 as stable supervisor before quickly being promoted to the position of assistant-trainer five months later. The next year, he again went on the move, this time, down South across the Causeway to join former Kranji trainer Sam Chua in October 2014. Five months later, he moved to trainer David Hill as assistant-trainer. After officially beginning training on 1 September 2017, Tan saddled his first winner with GENERAL CONATUS on 15 October 2017, and one month later, notched his first Group win with CLARTON SUPER in the Group 2 EW Barker Trophy. The same CLARTON SUPER handed Tan a second feature race win three months later in the Group 3 Fortune Bowl in February 2018.
