An Australian, Will has brought with him a wealth of experience having worked for trainers David Hayes and Robert Smerdon whilst studying a Marketing Degree at University.

Having grown up amongst one of Australia’s oldest racing families, his love of the sport has brought him to the home of horseracing.

Roger said, "I am delighted to announce that  Will Johnson will be my assistant trainer. He will head an excellent team of staff going into 2016 and beyond. Will combines industry expertise with youthful energy; a mix which made him a stand out for this role."
