Trainers: DARREN WEIR
Darren Weir was born in Berriwillock, a tiny Mallee District town in Victoria, whose population is only slightly more than the total number of staff Darren now employs across his vast thoroughbred racing business.
Darren Weir left school at age 15 and quickly sought to learn and experience all he could about horses and what makes them tick. This included stints working as a horse breaker, farrier, track rider and strapper. As is always seeking ways to learn and improve his knowledge. Darren Weir worked for various trainers including Jack Coffey in Birchip, John Castleman in Mildura, and the legendary Colin Hayes at Lindsay Park before taking out his own trainer’s licence in 1995 aged 25, when based at Stawell. He trained his first winner shortly after. Darren Weir quickly earned himself a reputation for being an astute horseman with the ability to get the best out of his horses and place them to advantage. As his success and horse numbers grew, Darren moved to Ballarat in 2001 and later acquired stables at Warrnambool to compliment his Ballarat base.
These humble beginnings, just ten years later in 2005, Darren became the leading Victorian Country Trainer for the first time. At the conclusion of the 2013/14 season Darren had also claimed the Victorian Metro Trainer Premiership. He became the first country-based trainer to do so. Not only maintaining his mantle each year since, Darren also now holds the Commonwealth training record for most number of wins in a season, firstly breaking it in season 2015/16 with 348 wins, and eclipsing it again in 2016/17.
The Darren Weir juggernaut continues on an upward spiral and is not about to slow down any time soon.
