David Ferraris

Trainer Profile

David Ferraris
David Ferraris was born on August 18 1963 in South Africa.

Ferraris was born with a love of horses in his blood. His father, Ormonde Ferraris, was a champion trainer of mounts such as Natural Selection.

David Ferraris started his own career in training in 1995 when he was 32 years old. He went on to win the trainers' title in South Africa 4 times and impressed all racing enthusiasts when he won one of South Africa's premier horse races; the Durban July Handicap back to back in 1997 and 1998. In 2003 he moved to Hong Kong where he continued to be hugely successful. His most notable horse is Vengeance of Rain who has won several prestigious Hong Kong races as well as the prominent 2007 Dubai Sheema Classic at the the Nad Al Sheba Racecourse in Dubai.

The Hong Kong Jockey club went to extreme lengths to check out the credentials of Ferraris before offering him the position. The HKJC's director of racing Winfred Engelbrecht-Bresges said that although Ferraris's South African record was top-class, they needed to check his operation out first hand in his home environment and what they saw impressed them immensely.

The HKJC felt that having both Tony Millard and Ferraris on board, they would have greater access to horses from South Africa. Ferraris originally turned down their offer, but was delighted when 2 years later they asked him once again to come on board. His initial refusal was due to his wife's pregnancy with their second child
