William Haggas is one of the most respected trainers at the headquarters of British racing in Newmarket. William spent time with John Winter and Sir Mark Prescott before taking out his own license and training his first winner - Tricky Note (15th April 1987) - from his Somerville Lodge yard where he has been based since 1987.

Since then, well over 1,300 winners have emerged from the yard, with 2015 being his joint-most successful season (numerically) to date, equalling 2014's record tally of 113 winners.

In 2011 William, who is married to Maureen, daughter of the great Lester Piggott, became a member of the elite band of trainers to have saddled two Epsom Classic winners when Dancing Rain made all in the Oaks to add to Shaamit’s 1996 Derby win. In 2014, William added another Group 1 winner to his tally when Mukhadram (below, left) gained a deserved top level success when winning the Coral-Eclipse. William's other Group 1 successes include Count Dubois (Gran Criterium), Chorist (Pretty Polly Stakes), King's Apostle (Prix Maurice de Gheest), Aqlaam (Prix du Moulin), Dancing Rain (German Oaks) and Rosdhu Queen (Cheveley Park Stakes).

William and Maureen have two children, Mary-Anne and Sam.
