Meagher relinquishes licence
Trainer John Meagher will be relinquishing his MRA trainer’s licence with effect from 20 February 2011 to return to Australia . The Melbourne Cup-winning trainer has had 11 successful years at Kranji and has won more than 550 races during his time here. The 62-year-old trainer has consistently finished in the Top 5 on the Singapore trainer’s premiership and has racked up 29 Group wins including seven Group 1 races. His major successes include the 2000 Singapore Gold Cup with Kim Angel, followed by three Raffles Cups (Mayo’s Music in 2004, Lim’s Classic in 2006 and Lim’s Objective in 2007) and one Lion City Cup with Arenti in 2006. His other Group 1 wins are the Kranji Mile (Recast in 2006) and Taurus (Patrons’ Bowl in 2006). The Club wishes John and his family all the best in their future endeavours.
