Trainer (T)

Associated Places:  Ilsley, Berks; Wantage; Foxhill, Wilts


Charles was the younger son of the Victorian trainer Robert Peck (1845 - 1899). He trained at Ogbourne and after serving in the Boer War became private trainer to Solomon Joel at Ilsley, transferring with the yard to Newmarket. For Solomon Joel he trained Polymelus and Pommern, and his success in the Ascot Gold Cup with Bachelor's Button inflicted a sensational defeat of the great mare Pretty Polly, enabling Solly to reap a fortune in winning bets. Later he became private trainer to Mr Jack Joel, at Wantage and Foxhill. He was a top class trainer and stableman, who always fed his own horses.
