Leading Trainers in WA

West Australian Racing
As the season is coming to a close shortly, I thought I would have a look at the leading Trainers here in Western Australia in respect to Metro Wins, rather than the list published by Racing Australia as Statewide wins. The top three make for interesting analysis as two of them can claim to be the leading Trainer, it just depends on the criteria.

Adam Durrant leads in total wins at 113, he leads in Metro wins with 69 but second in stakes earnings.

Grant & Alan Williams are second overall at 80 wins but third in metro at 50, however they lead the money race in stakes earnings. They also enjoy a strike rate of 27% which nobody in real terms gets close to in the top 20.

Simon Miller is third overall with 64 wins, second in metro with 55 wins and third is stakes earnings (over $1M ahead of fourth place)

This group accounts for total stakes earnings of $13.45M of the $31M the top 20 have accumulated for the season or 43%. ( most likely in excess of 45% of the State)

    Fair to suggest the top three have the biggest stables / most horses.
    But there’s a reason for that I guess.

    I personally like ROI% and those trainers who can win decent money with not too expensive horses with westspeed ect. Rather than buying expensive horses from over east.

    Training stats mean nothing, unless you can see how much a horse was bought for, versus what it made etc etc

    I would have thought Colin Websters stable would be inside the top twenty

    How do you price any ?
    Majority of horses out there haven't been through sales...........
    (To answer the question though - mare value x service fee / the number you first though of 
    :)) )

    I also doubt they have a horse purchased for more than $30k and always have a few good ones going around

    I don't understand that logic at all.

    If you want to buy crabs to prove a point, shop at the wharf.

    On the contrary, No point spending $1m for something that only earns $250k (if that).

    I think his (or her) point may revolve more around what you're handed.
    If you're handed lemons, yet produce lemonade - you're doing well.
    (V's being handed grapes and producing vinegar).
