Considered as one of the best and most well-known trainers in New Zealand, Laurie Laxon came to Singapore in 2000 with a wealth of racehorse training experience behind him. After first making a name for himself in New Zealand, he started crossing the Tasman Sea with regular incursions in Australian feature races, and none would be better remembered than his success in the 1988 Melbourne Cup with the great mare EMPIRE ROSE. Laxon showed he had an affinity with mares when he also landed the Hong Kong International Cup in 1993 with ROMANEE CONTI. In Singapore, Laxon has been associated with many good horses such as WHY BE, SADDLE UP, ROYAL CAPTAIN, BIG EASY, RECAST, RAUL, TOP SPIN and BETTER THAN EVER to name a few. Laxon has won almost every feature race on the Singapore racing calendar and won the trainer’s title six times in a row in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009. The 2007 season also saw Laxon achieve another career-high milestone when he bettered his own record of most wins (100) in a season at Kranji with 104 wins.
