Charlie Longsdon

Charlie Longsdon Racing Trainer LogoCharlie Longsdon began training in 2006, taking out his license to go along after picking up a lot of experience working with others. It is fair to say that Longsdon has picked up varied experience, including working in America, but the biggest moment for him will surely have been the time he spent working with Nicky Henderson.

This put Longsdon inside one of the biggest yards in UK racing, giving him the chance to see first-hand what is like to run a big yard, go to the big days, and of course, land plenty of high-level success. Since then, Charlie has gone from strength to strength, with over 700 winners to his name, which is an incredible number.

Longsdon also trains flat horses, though this is a much smaller part of his operation, with the main focus being on national hunt racing. Despite starting out in 2006, Longsdon had his first ever Grand National runner in 2010, just four years into his career going alone. The horse that took him to the race was Palypso De Creek, who fell at the 27th fence near the end of the race.
