What They Say - Carl Anderson
Race horse trainer
When did you start your career as a trainer?
I started my career as a trainer in 2006 but I was involved in racing from a younger age. I was brought into racing by friends and coming to the track on a regular basis I developed a liking for horses. It was captivating and I am still enjoying it.
Which horse was your first winner?
My first winner was with a horse named Blue Marlin. The rider was Richard Mitchell and he rode a beautiful race that day, I was so happy and that win will always remain one of my cherished memories.
Which horse was your longest odds winner?
My longest odds winner was Awesome Wildcat, ridden by Trevor Simpson at odds of 99-1. No one gave us a chance in the betting but Simpson rode a perfect race that day and I was real happy with the win.
Which is the best horse that you have trained?
English Storm is the best horse that I have trained. English Storm was an outstanding race horse, very consistent and also was a fighter. I won the Imported Mile with this horse. Simply put just a great race horse.
Which is the best horse that you have seen race at Caymanas Park?
I have seen a few good horses but I would say Legal Light is the best horse that I have seen race at Caymanas Park. Legal Light always winning races impressively while carrying top weight. Very consistent, very cool and very talented horse - one of the best to ever race in Jamaica.
Who influenced your career the most?
Since I have been in racing everyone has been good to me, family and friends have supported me well but I want to single out trainer Eraldo Fullerton. He supported and is still supporting me and gives me encouragement along the way, he always pushes me to do my best and for that I want to say thank you. I also want to thank Cedric Hyde for his support as well.
