South African trainer Patrick Shaw started out as stable employee in 1988 before being upgraded with a professional trainer's licence by the Jockey Club of Southern Africa in 1990. Shaw was consistently among the top 10 trainers in South Africa and counts his success with TEAL in the 1995 Durban July as his biggest achievement before relocating to Singapore in 2001. His first horse of note was PALACE LINE, who won the International Group 3 Singapore Classic and the Singapore Guineas in 2002. Boosted by his close association with prominent South African owner Fred Crabbia, Shaw has prepared useful horses like BLIZZ BLESS, QUE EXPRESION and WAR HORN, but none comes close to Singapore’s champion sprinter ROCKET MAN. A winner of 20 races from 27 starts, ROCKET MAN rewrote Singapore history in 2011 when he became the first Singapore-trained horse to win an International Group 1 race, landing the Group 1 Dubai Golden Shaheen at Meydan in 2011. Two months later, he broke through for his first KrisFlyer win at his third attempt. That year also saw Shaw clinch his first Trainer’s Premiership title after preparing 78 winners. Shaw won a second KrisFlyer in 2012 with ATO. Other Group wins of note are five Lion City Cups, including a record four times with ROCKET MAN (2009 to 2012), three Singapore Gold Cups with MR LINE in 2006, QUECHUA in 2014 and COOPTADO in 2015, and the 2006 Emirates Singapore Derby with OUR FALSTAFF. Shaw has also won the Kranji Mile twice, with BLIZZ BLESS in 2003 and SETEMBRO CHOVE in 2007 and the Patron's Bowl in 2012 with ATO.
