Record-breaking New Zealander Mark Walker is a five-time Premiership winning trainer and arrived in Singapore with outstanding credentials. The 2009/10 season saw him set a new record of 108 winners, bettering the 17 year-old mark of 104 previously held by Dave and Paul O’Sullivan. He also became the youngest trainer to win the Premiership when at 31 he took the prize in the 2003/04 season and in 2008/09 established a New Zealand record in prizemoney won – earning NZ$3.71 million. More than 800 winners have passed through his hands, of which more than 90 have been in “black type” races, including 20 at Group 1 level, among the most notable in New Zealand being three Kelt Capital Stakes including back-to-back victories in 2007 and 2008 with Princess Coup and in Australia the TJ Smith Handicap with Darci Brahma in 2005. Walker has quickly made his mark in Singapore, landing his first feature race at his first full season in 2011 with FLYING FULTON in the Group 3 Committee's Prize. FLYING FULTON has added more 'black type' wins en route to getting voted Polytrack Champion in 2012. It has been onwards and upwards for Walker thereafter, culminating with a first Singapore champion trainer title in 2015, and winning it again in 2017. Walker hit another milestone in 2018 when he landed his first Singapore Group 1 win with ELITE INVINCIBLE in the Charity Bowl at the first year the former Patron's Bowl was renamed as such. It got even better when the same horse handed him his first Singapore Gold Cup later the same year.
