Butters, Frederick Stanley (1888 - 1967)

Trainer (T)

Also Known As:  Fred Butters

Associated Places:  Heath House Stables, Newmarket,Kingsclere, Berkshire

Description:

Fred Butters was the younger brother of Frank Butters, trainer of the winners of 16 Classics, most of them for H H Aga Khan III, and like his brother he trained in Austria for a time and was interned during the First World War. With Mid-day Sun he captured the Derby for his patron Lettice Miller - they had very nearly won the Oaks two years earlier when the filly Ankaret was beaten only by a short head.

Fred Butters assisted his father Joseph Butters in Newmarket for a time after the war and then started to train at Heath House; in 1934 he moved his string to Kingsclere, owned by Captain Wills. He returned to Newmarket in 1939 and retired from training in 1950.
