Trainer: BJORN BAKER (pictured right)
Bjorn Baker has worked for his father, Murray Baker (one of New Zealand’s most successful trainers), on and off at every opportunity from the time he could wield a fork.
Horse racing being in the blood, Bjorn graduated from Otago University in 1999 with a Bachelor of Pharmacy. Bjorn Baker spent eight years in the profession before the pull of his horse-racing roots became too strong. He worked in New Zealand, Australia, England and Ireland throughout his pharmacy career. This allowed Bjorn Baker to attend many of Australasia’s and Europe’s great race meetings.
With dreams of becoming a thoroughbred horse trainer. Bjorn Baker decided to capitalise on his years overseas and spent time at The Curragh with Irish Hall of Fame trainer, John Oxx, and in Belmont, New York with master US trainer, Christophe Clement.
In 2007, Bjorn Baker decided to forgo his Pharmacy career and join Murray in the family business. On Bjorn’s first foray with a horse to Australia he accompanied Nom Du Jeu. A highly successful Autumn Carnival campaign in 2008, winning the AJC Derby at 40-1. Furthemore proving his worth, Bjorn then entered into a training partnership with Murray from the start of the 2008/09 season; in both the 2008/09 season and 2010/11 Baker Racing won more prize money than any other New Zealand based stable. Bjorn remained in partnership with his father, Murray, for three seasons during which they won in excess of 30 Stake Races.
Since arriving in Sydney Bjorn Baker has not only produced results with stayers such as CANTONESE and MR TIPSY as expected with his background; he has also produced numerous 2yo winners including UNENCUMBERED, WINNING RUPERT, TWILIGHT ROYALE and BRILLIANT TERROR (sold to HK) and recently produced his first Group 1 winner with MUSIC MAGNATE winning the Doomben 10,000.
