Barry Knight

Assistant Trainer

Growing up in Southern California, Barry hung around after school watching his dad, C.R. Chay Knight, race his quarter horses at Los Alamitos then followed his dad to Santa Anita when he switched to training Thoroughbreds. Barry quickly became engrossed in everything related to horses while working at his father's stable, breaking the babies and training two-year olds. He soon took over running the stable winning several stakes races at various tracks around the country.

Barry worked for Hall of Fame Trainers, Leroy Jolley and Elliot Burch and lived in owner C.V. Whitney's cottage on the Belmont Park backside. He worked at the best racetracks for the most successful people in the sport and knew training Thoroughbred racehorses was what he wanted to do.

In 2008, Barry's career took him to Saudi Arabia to train the two-year olds for Prince Sultan, a total of 65 horses.

He returned home and worked in California where he met Glen Todd and, after his immigration papers came through, Barry moved to Vancouver in 2014 and began working for North American Thoroughbred Horse Co.
