Developing horses has been engrained since childhood for the Oklahoma-born, Chicago-raised prodigy. The son of well-respected Midwest conditioner Liane Davis and assistant starter Hershell Davis, a former galloper for Wally Dollase, Davis had been on the backside virtually from birth.
“Working for mom was key,” Davis said. “She never had a lot of horses, maybe 10 to 20 at a time, and it was all hands-on hard work and dedication. I really learned from her how to make sure they’re happy, sound, healthy and looking good. In her 35 years training, she only has had one catastrophe on the track. That is unheard of.
Before striking out on his own, Chris also worked as a lead assistant to top trainers Mike Stidham & Phil D’Amato.
I have been in the horse racing industry my entire life. Worked my way up through the ranks. Teaching and learning are not only my passions, but defining aspects of my life. Even with many years of professional experience, I continue seeking ways to expand my knowledge so I can provide the best support to my clients. My personalized approach ensures that no matter your skill level, I can help you grow and achieve success.
Chris is a well respected up-and-coming young trainer who has already established a strong reputation for outstanding horsemanship. He will train the Dare To Dream horses based on the Florida, Kentucky. Indiana & Illinois circuits.
