Marc is a Group One winning trainer who has spent all his life around horses. He began his career working for his father, Clarry Conners (four times winning trainer of the Golden Slipper). Marc received a thorough grounding under the tutelage of Clarry and grandfather, Clarry Senior in turning out racehorses that have every chance of winning. Marc also spent time working in leading stables in England and the USA before taking out his licence as a trainer.
Marc trained his first metropolitan winner, Stellarwood at Warwick Farm on December 6, 1994. With only a small stable Marc has trained Camino Rose to win the Group One Coolmore Classic at Rosehill Gardens, Crown Princess to win the Group Three MRC Thoroughbred Club Stakes, Western Beau the Heritage Stakes at Rosehill, Mr Martini the Group Three Kingston Town Stakes at Rosehill and My Middi the Listed Jayco Cup at Caulfield. Who can forget Mr Clangtastic who thrilled the crowds with his bold front-running style to take out the Group Three Colin Stephen Quality at Randwick and the Listed Wyong Cup. Other good winners have been Nan Tien and Rinehart. Marc also likes to win Country cups. His first was the Wyong Cup with Aphasia. Others have been Mossurmi (Coffs Harbour and Nowra Cups), Morosi (Gundagai Snake Gully Cup) and Pimpala Secret (the Hawkesbury Guineas). Other horses that were purchased for small prices and have proven to be great money earners are Didntcostalot, Fiftyshadesofgrey and Super Too.
Marc can always be contacted to discuss any aspect of a horse’s training program and is assisted in the office by wife, Michelle.
