Based at Caulfield, Price has been training since 1991 but really hit the big time when training Lankan Rupee to Group 1 glory on five occasions, the horse earning the title of the World’s Best Sprinter in 2014 along the way.
His current team of horses include the flashy chestnut Mighty Boss, winner of the 2017 Caulfield Guineas, and Grunt, one of the leading contenders for The All-Star Mile.
The four-year-old has two Group 1 wins to his name, and both came at The All-Star Mile distance (1600m) and venue (Flemington). Expect the straight-talk trainer to play a big role again in this year’s Festival of Racing.
