Rae Guest has spent a lifetime working with racehorses. He entered the business first as a jockey and then became a trainer in Newmarket, the headquarters of British racing. He is probably best known for his record in training Group 1 winning two year old Serious Attitude, Dual Group 1 winner My Emma, multiple stakes winning sprinters Millyant and her son Mirza.
Art Sherman introduced Rae Guest and rider Robbie Mills to Denise and Perry Martin in Dubai. Art personally chose Rae to prepare (now) two time American Horse of the Year California Chrome for a go at the Royal Ascot. The Martins' goal was two-fold. To break up the long trip from Dubai to Illinois while providing Chrome with hind-end back strengthening gallops and a bit more interest for his mind by placing California Chrome in a more horsey drug free environment.
