Trainer (T)

Also Known As:  Reg Day

Associated Places:  Terrace House, Newmarket


Reg Day's long career spanned 68 years, during which he trained the winners of three Classics and probably the best and most distinguished stayer this country has ever known, Son-in-Law. Training firstly for Lord D'Abernon and then in Germany for the Kaiser, Reg Day returned to England to take over his father Fred W Day's stables at Terrace House at the end of 1912.

Apart from Son-in-Law, other stayers sent out from the yard included Foxlaw (Ascot Gold Cup), Brown Prince (Cambridgeshire Handicap), Bracket (Cesarewitch) and Auralia (Doncaster Cup). His best horse was probably Solario, winner of the St Leger, Coronation Cup and Ascot Gold Cup.

He retired in 1968 to manage the Hamilton Stud.
