John Bateman learned the subtleties of horse training from the best – the late Guy Walter (1954-2014) who trained no less than 36 Group 1 winners.
John Bateman is your ‘no frills’ kind of trainer. Not one to spruik himself or impart wisdom on others, John has emerged from relative obscurity to become one of the most respected horse trainers in New South Wales.
A former leading jockey of the Western Districts region, John got his big break in training when he found his way to the Guy Walter stable in 2000. The ensuing 14 years would prove invaluable for his experience.
John came to a cross-roads in his career when his long-time mentor Guy Walter suddenly passed away in May 2014. But the tragedy gave John the impetus to preserve Guy’s legacy and begin training in his own right at Goulburn.
Since going out on his own, John has enjoyed consistent success with a stable that seldom exceeds 15 horses. He places the highest value on establishing a personal connection with his horses.
