Charlie has worked in the racing industry for 38 years, where he started as an apprentice jockey to Jack Clayton. He then became Work Rider and Stable Lad for Bruce Hobbs. In 1985 he joined Lord John Fitzgerald as Head Lad and 7 years later was granted his first license by the Jockey Club.

In 1995 he joined Conrad Allen as Assistant Trainer, moving on to the gambling stable of Willie Musson as Head Lad. He then travelled to Germany and worked for K Page as Head Lad before returning to Newmarket in 2002 as principal Work Rider for Dave Morris and Noel Quinlan.

In 2003 with some exciting prospects he reapplied for his license which the Jockey Club granted in April.

Throughout his years in racing he has consistently bought yearlings to break in and sell on as two year olds, the best example of this is GREAT DEEDS one of FORZANDO's best offspring who went onto win the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot, Group 1, as a 2 year old. Some of the best horses he has ridden in their work were include: TROMOS - Unbeaten at 2 years old and winner of the Dewhurst Stakes at Newmarket, and a 10 lengths winner at Royal Ascot. He was the highest rated ever by Timeform as a 2 year old; TYRANOS - Irish Derby Winner; SISSLING MELODY - 2 year old Group Winner; RAUSER - Jockey Club Stakes Winner, Newmarket, Group 1.

It was in October 2008 that things really changed round for Team McBride when they made the decision to trust their judgement by investing in higher quality yearlings with less emphasis on older horses, for which he had built a strong reputation of having success with such moderate pedigrees. He purchased eleven yearlings and all of them won - nine as 2yo's and the remaining at 3. These included: MISS STARLIGHT (OR106), Charlie's first ever Group winner - The Al Maktoum Trophy (Hamburger Stutenpreis Gp3 for 3yo Fillies). pmracing's SOVIET SECRET (RPR94) finished 2nd in the Wood Ditton, a winner 4 times and placed 2nd 6 times from 12 starts, both horses sold to Ibrahaim Al Malki (QATAR).

BLUE MAIDEN (OR108) 2nd in the Sweet Solara, Nell Gwynn and Sandringham Stakes, and AUDACITY OF HOPE (OR104) 3rd in a GP3 race at Newbury and 2nd in the Jersey Derby, both horses we sold to Earl Mack in America.

In 2010 Charlie's family made the decisive move to Exeter House Stables having previously commuted from the other side of Newmarket to a rented yard in Hamilton Road, thus enabling them to be 24/7 with the horses. This is very much a team affair with wife Bev and son Sean, (who is slowly being groomed to take over should Charlie consider retirement), and a dedicated staff. The owners have also been rewarded for their loyalty with many having been with Charlie through thick and thin.

Judged by many of his peers to be one of the best and under rated trainers in Newmarket, Charlie and Team McBride are now receiving that recognition and pmracing are proud to be part of that team.
