Although it is important in varying degrees most online sports betting site players know how valuable a high-potent pedigree can be but a classy pedigree also transfers to trainers in this great game.

Enter Tom Morley. He has only saddled 15 horses in his entire career but he has greeted 3 of those runners in the winner’s circle, 3 more ran third and 2 settled for runner-up rewards completing the exacta.

That’s a pretty nice start to what could be a very promising career.

He has about a dozen horses currently this summer, his first at Saratoga. A native of England, his entire family has been involved with horses for generations.

His father owned horses, and uncle and cousin are trainers and two other cousins are bloodstock agents. It probably makes for some interesting table talk around the holidays.

Some people are lucky and they know what they want to do in life very early and Morley fits that bill. He has been riding horses since soon after he could walk and knew he wanted to be a trainer before he reached his teenage years.

One of the things that Morley did as a youngster is pay attention to history and try to learn every single day. When he was attending the race meets at York or Newcastle during his college years, he walked away every day knowing he learned something and that lesson can be useful in the future.

He was also lucky enough to join a very impressive training program operated by Darley called the Flying Start program. This program allowed him to travel Dubai, Down Under, across Europe and to the states and eventually led his way back to the stables of  trainer Jeremy Nosada, who won the 2010 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile with Wilco almost his many victories.

In the states, Morley hooked up as an assistant with the very clever trainer Eddie Kenneally and he ran an Eastern division for him for over a year and a half.

Kenneally has plied his trade all over the country in his career and he has won with 16% of his starters and his runners have earned purses in excess of $22 million. That is the kind of experience that goes a long way to the bank.

One of the Morley runners that could be promising is Scribbling Sarah. She was entered in late July at Saratoga and appeared in a great spot to break her maiden but she acted up, broke through the gate, dumped her rider and had to be scratched.

On August 2, she made up for her bad manners by overcoming a sluggish start to come from second to last and win going away while recording a 70 Beyer Speed Figure.

It may not be her last win. All 3 of her siblings have won including a near $100,000 earner and if you go deep in her pedigree you’ll discover that her dam is kin to Lucky Lewis, who won over $350,000, Uncle T Steven, a 5-time stakes winner and over $500,000 earner and Grade 3 winner and over $700,000 earner Wishful Tomcat.

Other Morley runners to watch are Ithastobegeorge, who ran well off the claim for Morley running second in allowance company after being claimed for $60,000.

His student Treblemaker has just started back training at Saratoga and Morley thought enough of him to try a stakes in May. Watch this runner especially if he is entered on an off surface.

Pencil Morley in as a trainer to be aware of the rest of the season.
