Ciaron Maher

Horse Trainer - Victoria & New South Wales


Ciaron Maher

Apprentice to CS Hayes then a successful jumps jockey, including captaining the Australia team against Ireland in the International Jockey Challenge, Ciaron realised his size would deny his riding ambitions. Despite that, his love for racing and his natural interest and curiosity in training saw him commit to a career as a trainer at a young age. Knowing you learn best from the best, he spent time with Bart Cummings, Aiden O’Brien and Willie Mullins before starting in his own right, with 6 boxes on his dad’s farm. He knows you never stop learning and continues to connect with the greats, only last year spending time with Wesley Ward (USA), Roger Charlton (UK) and Richard Hannon (UK), Andre Fabre (France) and Joseph O’Brien (IRE).

Ciaron truly believe he has the team and the facilities to be amongst if not best training operation in Australia. The Ballarat training facilities (that Ciaron believes to be amongst the best in the world). Cranbourne and Sydney Warwick Farm and Bong Bong Farm. With a custom made pre-training and spelling operation at Pakenham and hand picked facilities at Balnarring & BOBS farm.

"The partnership between Starblue Consultancy and Ciaron Maher Racing is highly valuable to us. As we continue to expand, we plan to have 70% of our horses trained in Victoria and New South Wales by Ciaron and his team. Our visions are aligned in terms of what we aim to achieve and the level of professionalism we provide to our clients." Adrien Senechaud Director at Starblue Consultancy
