Description:

Richard Marsh rode on the flat and over fences for Captain Machell in his early days and began to train at Epsom in the mid-1870s, moving to Six Mile Bottom and then Lordship Farm, Newmarket. In 1892 he was asked to train for Edward Prince of Wales (later Edward VII)at the grand new establishment at Egerton House and took delivery of 8 royal horses, and 20 belonging to the Prince's friend Baron Maurice de Hirsch, which had been in the care of John Porter. Reasons for the split were never fully explained. Marsh did well and won 8 Classics for his Royal patron. The trainer now enjoyed the circle of his many wealthy and influential owners and spent a small fortune keeping up his establishment and lifestyle. When he died he was worth a mere £383.
